Nokia trumpets socially-savvy smartphones

Stepping up with Symbian^3

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nokia launched a "powerful family" of three high-end Symbian^3 Smartphones in London today. Here's a run-through:

Crafted with business in mind, the Nokia E7 comes with Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, a 4in touchscreen and ClearBlack technology for improved outdoor visibility. A full keyboard should appeal to business users for working on documents and spreadsheets. The E7 will be available for roughly £420.

E7 - business in mind

The Nokia C7 is Web 1.0 and Web 2.0-centric, featuring easy access to Gmail and Yahoo!, live Facebook and Twitter feeds. The spec inclueds a 3.5in AMOLED screen encased in a body of stainless steel and glass and an 8Mp camera. IT will retail at about £280.

Nokia C6 is a more compact social networking phone that includes the social network features and comes geared up for music and mobile entertainment. With a 3.2in AMOLED touchscreen, an 8Mp camera and the inclusion of ClearBlack technology, the C6 should retail around £220.

These handsets join the already announced N8 to form Nokia's new collection of Symbian Smartphones. Featuring 250 fresh Symbian features, an updated Ovi store with a so-called friendlier interface and the latest beta release of free Ovi maps, the new Nokias promise to pack a punch.

All three are expected to ship by the end of the year. ®
