27 November 2009
Nokia has announced two new 3G mobile phone handsets. The Nokia 6700 Slide and the Nokia 7230 are both scheduled to launch early 2010, costing around €160 and €100 respectively.
The Nokia 6700 Classic launched earlier this year, but the Nokia 6700 Slide adds a new slider and faster connectivity.

The new Nokia 6700 is a slide handset rather than a candy bar like the Nokia Classic 6700. The new model is slightly lighter, has slightly faster 3G download speeds, and has an improved battery life. The new 6700 Slide runs on the Symbian operating system.
Both the 6700 Classic and the 6700 Slide feature a 5Mp camera and a 2.2-inch screen. The new 6700 Slide will come bundled with a 2GB MicroSD memory card as opposed to the 1GB card that comes with the 6700 Classic.
The Nokia 7230 is also a slide mobile phone handset, and will come bundled with a 2GB MicroSD memory card. It features basic 3G connectivity for web browsing, a 3.2Mp camera and runs on the S40 operating system - a simpler version of Symbian.
Both models are targeted at keen social networkers, and will launch in a range of colours in the first quarter of next year.
