Nokia Launches Three New Symbian Smartphones

Nokia’s got a few new handsets lined up for the end of the year. Perhaps most impressive of the bunch is the E7 (shown above), which vaguely resembles a buttoned-down, business-centric Sidekick.

The E7’s 4-inch AMOLED touchscreen slides up into an angled position to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, yet remains relatively thin at just over half an inch. The phone sports an 8-megapixel camera capable of shooting 720p video, along with HDMI output and 16GB of built-in storage.

Under the hood, there are plenty of corporate-friendly features: remote wipe, secure intranet access, Exchange support, Share Point Server, and Ovi Maps. The phone runs the new Symbian^3 operating system (it just took me about 15 seconds to find the ^ key—it’s Shift+6), which touts personalized homescreens, multitasking, apps, and more. It’s got an Android-like look to it, though I’m sure Symbian fans would be quick to point out all the differences.

Nokia also announced two new candy bar-style phones: the C7 and the C6. The C7 sports a 3.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 8-megapixel camera with 720p video recording, 8GB of storage, and a thickness of 0.4 inches.


The C6 is just a little bit smaller, with a 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen and many of the same features as the C7.


All three handsets will be available by the end of the year, though there’s no word on US pricing or carrier availability. As with many Nokia phones here in the states, you may have to purchase the handset outright and then set it up for use on AT&T or T-Mobile. Unsubsidized European pricing is as follows: €495 for the E7, €335 for the C7, and €260 for the C6.
