Nokia 701 - C7-00 successor with Symbian Belle and IPS LCD
Third of the Symbian Belle series announced today comes the Nokia 701. It is based on the C7-00 with the processor upgraded to 1 GHz (ARM-11), faster (up to 4 times) hardware graphics acceleration, and twice more RAM: 512 MB of operating memory.

Features include IPS LCD ClearBlack display (3.5", nHD 360x640 pixels) providing better viewing angles and improved outdoor performance, advertised by Nokia as the brightest screen ever used on a smartphone, NFC (Near Field Communication) chip, 8 Megapixel EDoF camera with 720p video recording, 8 GB of internal storage memory and microSD memory card slot (up to 32 GB), FM radio receiver and transmitter, Active Noise Cancellation using second microphone, quad-band GSM and penta-band 3G, WiFi b/g, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, USB 2.0 (microUSB with USB On-The-Go), Bluetooth 3.0, integrated A-GPS, magnetometer, accelerometer, proximity and ambient light sensors, 3.5 mm Nokia AV connector and 2 mm charger port.


Powered by the latest Symbian Belle software, the device provides new and more intuitive user interface and home screens, much improved performance and enhanced multitasking, pull-down notifications, rich NFC functionality, and a range of updated and improved system applications, including Nokia Maps 3.6 with free lifetime navigation.

The Nokia 701 measures 117.3 x 56.8 x 11 mm (64 cc) and weighs 131 grams, comes in steel dark, silver light, amethyst violet and white colours, and with its BL-5K 1200 mAh battery provides 23 days of standby time and 17 hours (GSM) / 6.8 hours (3G) of talk time. The device will start shipping in Q3 2011 at 290 Euros before taxes and subsidies. Unfortunately, being the most powerful of the Symbian Belle range, the 701 probably won't be offered via operators in most of Western Europe countries and in the US, apparently not to compete with the upcoming Windows Phone range, just like the N9... I'll spare you reading what I think about it.

Symbian Anna update for the N8, E7, C7 and C6-01 now available
Customers in selected European and Asian markets, with further countries to follow by the next week, can now upgrade their Nokia N8, E7, C7 and C6-01 Symbian smartphones to Symbian Anna.

Depending on market, the software can be upgraded using Ovi Suite's Software Update function, and/or Over-The-Air using the built-in Software Update application on the phone. In most cases the update takes two steps, the first being the actual upgrade to Symbian Anna (via Ovi Suite or OTA) and the second one (OTA, via the handset's SW Update app) installing some additional applications (e.g. QuickOffice). User data is preserved duing the update, but it is still recommended to make a backup, just in case.

Symbian Anna's most important improvements include split screen text entry, improved Web browser, new set of icons, updated Maps, Calendar, Photos, Social, Mail applications, virtual QWERTY keyboard in portrait, draggable home screens, new Intranet application to access intranets, device encryption functionality, and NFC chip activation on the C7.

Sensor Gallery - explore the sensors on your Symbian phone
Sensor Gallery is an utility application meant for developers to explore the sensors and their readings provided by Qt Mobility sensor APIs. It dynamically generates a list of sensors supported by Qt Mobility sensors API. The application allows user to select a sensor from the list to view the readings received from that particular sensor in form of raw values. The values are also retrieved dynamically i.e. the application just displays whatever is received via the Qt Mobility API.

Nokia 500: Symbian Anna @ 1 GHz
Nokia has just announced the Nokia 500, a mass-market with Symbian Anna and (for the first time on Symbian) with a 1 GHz processor.

The phone also features a 3.2" capacitive nHD (640x360) screen, 5 Megapixel EDoF camera, 2 GB of storage memory (and microSD expansion slot supporting 32 GB cards), WLAN b/g, Bluetooth 2.1, quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) GSM and penta-band (850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz) WCDMA, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, micro USB 2.0, FM/RDS radio, integrated Assisted GPS, and interchangeable back covers (three included, more available as accessories). It comes with Ovi Maps 3.6, including free lifetime navigation. Proximity, ambient light, magnetometer (compass) and accelerometer sensors are also included. 1100 mAh BL-4U removable battery provides standby time of 20 days and talktime of 7/5 hours (GSM/WCDMA). The phone measures 111.3 x 53.8 x 14.1 mm (73 cc) and weighs only 93g.

Available in Q3 2011, the Nokia 500 will cost 150 Euros before taxes and subsidies.

Nokia says: "Under the hood, there's the 1 GHz processor – allowing for plenty of oomph when you're multitasking lots of apps or doing something extra-demanding. There's 2GB of storage memory, plus the possibility of increasing this by a further 32 GB using the micro-SD card slot. Like all our recent smartphones, it offers pentaband radio coverage so world travellers need never be out of touch, 3G data up to HSUPA speeds [that's a whopping maximum speed of 5.8 Mbps nowadays, by the way]. There's also Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi b/g, as you'd expect. [...] It's also worth mentioning the battery, which despite the faster processor, still manages to pull off a very respectable performance. For us, that's an absolute priority. The battery will see you through 5-7 hours talk time, 450+ hours in standby mode or up to 35 hours of music playback, if that's your thing.

The Nokia 500 will be available in black and white varieties, black first and then white before the end of the year. And there's three different-coloured back covers in the box. More colours for these will become available soon – including purple, azure blue, pink, coral red, orange and dark silver. Having seen the hot pink versions of the Nokia N8 and N9, we're convinced that colour will win a lot of fans. Excluding any local taxes or operator subsidies, the Nokia 500 will cost just €150 before taxes and subsidies, and will be available from the third quarter of this year."
