Nokia has officially announced a trio of new smartphones at its Nokia World conference in London, the Symbian-powered E7 Communicator slider and C6-01 and C7 touchscreen candybars. All three models feature so-called “ClearBlack” AMOLED displays, run the company’s latest version of Symbian, Symbian^3, and are described by Executive Vice President Niklas Savander as the beginning of Nokia’s “fight back to smartphone leadership.”
Certainly the most compelling device here is the business-oriented E7 (top image), with a four-inch tilting screen and eight megapixel camera capable of 720p video capture. This model also boasts the ability to create PowerPoint slides on the handset itself, as well as Microsoft Exchange Active Sync support, for around 495 euros (~$635).
The C7 (middle image), meanwhile, marries a 3.5-inch screen to a stainless steel body and will sell for about 335 euros (~$430). Its little brother, the 3.2-inch C6-01 (bottom image), features the same camera as both of its new siblings — a step up from the five-megapixel shooter found on the S60 5th Series-powered C6-00 — but will retail for just 260 euros (~$334).
All three units are scheduled for release before the end of the year.
