Nokia 'thinnest smartphone ever' slips out
Symbian Belle not the end?
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. ®
