Nokia 'thinnest smartphone ever' slips out

Symbian Belle not the end?

SANS - Survey on application security programs

While Nokia's impetus is clearly with Windows Phones, the company insists Symbian is far from kaput, a sentiment supported by the seeming leak of several fresh Symbian smartphones, with one described as the thinnest of its kind ever.

Snaps of another diddy smartphone, the Nokia N5, were upped by Excellular yesterday, showing off a touchscreen display, 5Mp camera and the latest Symbian OS, Anna - a system similar to MeeGo, apparently.

Four further models have sprung up today, though, after Flashfly posted spy-style shots of apparent specification sheets and GSMArena went one step further by posting photographs of the Nokia 700.

According to the reports, the Nokia 700, or 'Zeta', will come with a 1GHz processor, 3.2in 360 x 640 OLED touchscreen, 5Mp camera and near-field comms (NFC) support. The handset is billed as "the thinnest smartphone ever" - it's 10mm thick - with a weight of about 80g. It will run on Symbian Belle, the successor to Anna, and will retail for €290 (£260).

Capturing Zeta phones

The Nokia 701, or 'Helen', is also set for a 1GHz processor, although comes with a larger, 3.5in OLED touchscreen and an 8Mp camera. It should run Belle too and leave wallets roughly €300 (£270) lighter.

Next up is the Nokia 600, or 'Cindy', which boasts similar specs to the aforementioned Zeta, but has more focus on entertainment and social networking. It'll sell for roughly €260 (£234).

Last but not least is the budget-ish N500, aka 'Fate', which has a 1GHz processor, 3.2in touchscreen and 5Mp camera. It's predicted to cost less than €200 (£180).

All handsets are expected on shelves sometime in Q3. ®
