It is a big week for Nokia with a huge bash in Nice, France to parade new handsets, and apparently a new operating system. Reuters managed to get the info on the handsets first, while you can read more about the operating system on The Register.
The phone that catches our eye though is Nokia’s first clamshell for the European market – the 7200. It is an amazing-looking handset finished in a kind of weird beige textile. Even though it hasn’t yet been formally announced it has already been given the moniker the Louis Vuitton of phones. Looks like a real winner though it doesn’t appear to have a an integrated camera. The picture was featured on a Swiss website.
Of the other phones, the 6230 is a camera phone, while the 6820 features a keyboard and is rumoured to be the successor to Nokia’s Communicator range of handsets.
All three won’t go on sale until early next year.
We’ll have full details of the handsets after they are formally announced on Tuesday morning.
