Three Must-Have Nokia Handsets
Get a more detailed look at three of the upcoming mobile phones from Nokia.
It is quite undeniable that Nokia has been one of the largest handset providers in the industry to date. They had already produced a wide array of high-end mobile phones, from basic phones to colored, camera-equipped phones, and stylish Android smartphones. In fact, most of the popular handsets that are introduced today are manufactured by Nokia, including the N and E series.
Knowing that there are a lot of fans eagerly waiting for the next Nokia phone releases, GADG decided to wrap-up three of the most anticipated Nokia handsets that are set to reach the store shelves this year. Check them out below:
The N9 is said to be the first Nokia smartphone to run on a Linux-based MeeGo operating system. It is made up of polycarbonate materials, which gives the device a competitive hardware and notable technical specifications.
The anticipated handset features a 3.9-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 854 x 480. It has a protective glass that is made from Corning’s Gorilla Glass, and is powered by a TI OMAP3630 1GHz processor. One of the outstanding specs of the N9 is its 8-megapixel auto focus camera with a dual-LED flash that comes with Carl Zeiss optics and a 28mm lens, which could support 720p HD video (@ 30fps) recording. Aside from that, the smartphone is jam-packed with a 1GB RAM and new browsing capabilities.
Nokia N9 is also confirmed to be offering some cool applications, including the Ovi Store, Skype, Facebook and Twitter, Angry Magic Birds, Accuweather, Wi-Fi Hotspots, Foursquare and AP Mobile.
Nokia 700 Zeta
Some reports have claimed that a new Finnish-made Nokia handset named as “Zeta” will be hitting the store shelves soon. Although there are still no official words about its pricing and availability, most of the device’s specifications have already been leaked out — including a large tough screen display, a black frame with red back casing, and a 5-megapixel camera with 2592×1944 pixels resolution and LED flash.
The Nokia 700 Zeta will be powered by a Symbian “Belle”, a brand-new version of Symbian Operating system, and is aiming to become the world’s slimmest smartphone. It comes with a 1 GHz processor, a 3.2 inch AMOLED touch screen, and a built-in NFC chip which gives the device the ability to utilize some smart cards for various wireless transactions.
In terms of connectivity, the Zeta is still a winner as it has better support for 3G, GPRS, EDGE, WLAN, Bluetooth and USB. It also features a secondary camera, which could be used for video calling.
The Nokia C2-06 is a dual SIM handset, which means that you can insert two SIMS of different network at once. Announced last June 2011, the C2-06 supports a 2G network and comes with 103 x 51.4 x 17 mm dimensions and 115 gm weight. It has an awesome slider, giving the phone a very sleek look.
One of the unique features of the handset is its Handwriting recognition system that enables you to write on the screen in any way you want. Aside from that, the Nokia C2-06 has a great support for GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth and USB. It is also jam-packed with an MP4 player, MP3 player, Predictive text input, FlashLite support, and a 2-megapixel camera with 1600×1200 resolution that could record videos at the speed rate of QCIF@15fps.
This dual SIM phone also gets a strong battery life, allowing you to spend 5hrs of talk time, 37 hrs of music playing, and 400 hrs of standby mode.
