Three more from Nokia

Mobile phones

Nokia used the swanky backdrop of Monaco to launch three new phones and confirm that it is to produce a handset with a hard drive in 2005.

Most interesting of the new line up is the 7710 – a product that has been rumoured for some time (pictures have been widely circulated around the web). A semi-oval ‘media device’ designed for TV and video applications, it offers support for push email based on Smartner solution, 90 MB integrated memory plus 128 MB on the MultiMediaCard (MMC) that’s provided. Other handy features include onscreen keyboard, handwriting recognition, Bluetooth and megapixel camera.

Perhaps most interesting is that it comes with a built in ‘moblog’ client which means that bloggers like us can upload images and text to their blog without having to have a computer perched on their lap. It’s even possible to edit images on screen.

The widescreen display provides 640×320 pixel resolution but it is quite a hefty device tipping the scales at 189 grammes (that’s heavier than the Sony Ericsson P910).

Also announced in Monaco were the 3230 smart phone with megapixel camera and the 6020 camera phone. The new line-up brings the total number of handsets unveiled by the Finnish company this year to 27.
