Nokia 600, 700, and 701 with Symbian Belle launch in India
Nokia has officially announced its three newest Symbian-powered smartphones in India. The Nokia 600, 700, and 701 were all first introduced in Hong Kong last month, and now the company seems ready to present them in more countries.
Of the three, the Nokia 701 is apparently already available to buy in India. It’s recommended sales price is Rs. 18,999. The Nokia 600 and Nokia 700 will be in stores in India sometime during next month, thus missing Nokia’s initial estimate of being shipped in the third quarter of the year (yet if we’re honest, no one was expecting the company to ship them to all parts of the world so soon).
All three devices run Symbian Belle, which is the newest version of the mobile operating system, and the one that comes with a pretty big user interface revamp. Whether or not it’s too late in the game for that to count remains to be seen. All the phones have a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. The Nokia 600 and 700 have 3.2-inch touchscreens, while the 701’s is 3.5-inch. Camera-wise, it’s a 5 MP affair for both the 600 and 700, while the 701 has an 8 MP shooter.
The Nokia 600 has a recommended sales price of Rs. 12,999, and the Nokia 700 is priced at Rs. 18,099. Nokia would clearly like for these devices to capture a sizeable chunk of the Indian midrange smartphone space, but it’s unclear yet if they’ll manage to pull that off.
