Nokia 600, 700, 701 announced with Symbian Belle!

Nokia has officially announced Symbian Belle, an update to Anna, along with three (3) new handsets — Nokia 701, Nokia 700 and Nokia 600 (following the new nomenclature).

The Nokia 701 is an 11mm full touchscreen handset with 3.5″ IPS-LCD display running on a 1 GHz processor. And yes, it looks like the Nokia C7.

The Nokia 600 has an internal radio antenna so I guess you don’t need to plug the earphones for the radio to work.

All three handsets will be released together with the latest Symbian Belle OS. A preview of the new OS is shown here.

Doesn’t that look Android-ish to you?

Expected release of the handsets will be sometime this quarter, so no later than October 2011.

Prices of the handsets are as follows:

Nokia 600 : 180 eur / 260 USD before taxes and subsidies
Nokia 700 : 270 eur / 390 USD before taxes and subsidies
Nokia 701 : 290 eur / 420 USD before taxes and subsidies

Remember, Nokia’s new nomenclature means — the higher the number, the better.

    Symbian + Android = Belle.

    …and according to rumors, the next Symbian would be Symbian Rama. ;D

    Finally Nokia is doing something better, hopefully this will make them more stable in due time. Their Windows 7 Phones take FOREVER!!!!

    It isn’t any better than Nokia N8 right? Yun na kasi sana bibilhin ko this coming sept.. eh baka naman biglang mas ok pala toh. Hirap na naman pumili. haha

    • lawrence says:

      still go for the N8, its still the best nokia hardware wise, because of the camera.

      I think the 1 ghz here will just have marginal effect at best. From the looks of it, Belle is already optimized to run smoothly even in 600Mhz CPU of N8. There’s even a vid in Youtube for this.

      All symbian^3 devices will be updated to Belle anyway, so no problem with the OS.

    Why does Nokia keep releasing fixed focus cameras?

    • quzaqi says:

      same complaint here. it’s what keeps me from buying some of their new phone models. in short, a deal breaker if you’d ask me.

    Hmmmm, it looks like Nokia phones are getting capable these days sans the Windows Phone 7

  9. jonas says:

    Has Symbian quietly evolved?

  10. Dan_MD says:

    Amazing, right?

    I wish they had a revamped version of the N8 acquiring the better hardware specs of these new devices, namely: 1GB ROM, 1GB user memory, 512MB RAM (VS N8′s: 1GB ROM, 135MB user memory, 256MB RAM, 16GB extra memory). The new devices also come with 4x more capable graphics co-processor.

    Well, still sticking with my N8 for the superior camera performance. I hope the Belle update wouldn’t take too long.

  11. Luke Tan says:

    just when you thought Nokia and Symbian OS is down and out, a new wave of models is out. Nokia won’t just give its crown without a fight. It’s a good sign that while they want to embrace Windows Mobile 7, they still continue to develop their Symbian platform. The OS still needs polishing but having developed and improved Symbian is a positive move forward. Samsung and LG might have overtaken Nokia but for how long they can cope up with iPhone’s onslaught remains to be seen. Nokia on the other hand have already found its niche in the smartphone market and have loyal supporters. Step up the pressure NOKIAAAAAA…..

    Nokia is releasing tooo many phones rather than focusing on a few. Bakit ba sila nagmamadali? Rather than release ng release ng phone I think would be better to strategize first than trying to eat out competitors. Apple has like one model of its phone pero super benta.

    • Epstein says:

      Because different people have different needs and wants. Hindi lahat ng tao afford ang iPhone, pero lahat ng tao kayang bumili ng Nokia, dahil may iba ibang choices na may iba ibang price.

  13. Salleh says:

    Wow excited ako sa 701 pero kahit 1GHz ang mga bagong phone eh N8 pa rin ang gusto kong maging 2nd fone dahil sa camera. Hopefully maganda presyo ng 701 para ma convince ako :)

  14. loadex says:

    NokiA phones becomes interestinging again. Gone are the days where they simply “change” model with same innards as previous one and slap a hefty price for the “new” model.

  15. seraphica_seven says:

    yung price nila ka-price lang nung C6-01 at C7.. Catherine ang susunod na OS.. hindi rama.. hehehe hindi na ako tuloy makapaghintay sa mga phones na to…

  16. biteMYapple says:

    nokia is back in fighting FORM. i am fond of NOKIA- until ANDROID and IOS came along… now i think buying a nokia smartphone is worthy once again— thats redemption– an old laggy and ugly OS metamorphing to an abled OS.
    i think the pieces of the puzzle is already solved==an abled os with the pliability of ANDROID and the smoothness and caliber of IOS without THE BATTERY DRAIN.. im loving this revamped old OS once again
