Nokia announces trio of new "classic" mobile phones: 6700, 6303, 2700

Mobile phones


Nokia has just announced the latest models in its “classic” line of mobile phones — namely the 6700 classic, 6303 classic, and 2700 classic. Detailed specs are fairly sparse at present (hopefully Nokia will put up some more info soon), but let’s take a look and see what we can glean.

Nokia 6700 classic

First up is the Nokia 6700 classic, (pictured top left) which supposedly “continues the legacy of the Nokia 6300”. This slim, smooth handset offers a 5-megapixel camera, A-GPS navigation and Nokia Maps, and high-speed data connection for audio and video. That’s all the info we’re getting at the moment, except that it’ll cost €235 (about £215) before subsidies etc.

The cheaper Nokia 6303 classic (pictured centre) packs in a 3.2-megapixel camera, 2.2-inch screen, Nokia Maps, “excellent battery performance”, and (thankfully) a standard 3.5mm audio jack (why this should ever have been an issue is beyond me). Sounds as if this handset will be aimed at music lovers, so potentially a candidate for “Comes with Music”? Priced at €135 (£125) before subsidies.

Nokia 2700 classic

Finally, the cheap-and-cheerful Nokia 2700 classic (pictured top right) offers 2GB of storage, integrated music player and 2-megapixel camera. It’ll work with Nokia’s Ovi online services and is being aimed at users who may not have used the mobile Internet before. Pricing at €65 (£60) before subsidies.

All three handsets are expected in the second quarter of 2009. No further details are yet available but as soon as we have more detailed specs, and hands-on experience, we’ll let you know.
