The highlight over at Nokia camp is nothing less than the Nokia E90 Communicator itself. The other new handsets include Nokia E65, Nokia E61i, Nokia N77, Nokia 6110 Navigator and Nokia 3110 classic. Confused with all those numbers? Don't worry, read on for further details.
Highly awaited, the Nokia E90 is the Nokia's new shot at communicators - a theme that was left aside for quite some time now. The new Nokia is based on the Symbian 9.1 OS with the 3rd generation of S60 user interface - a highly popular Symbian modification that has already established a wide fan base. The Nokia E90 features more or less all current connectivity technologies such as quad-band GSM/EDGE/GPRS, UMTS, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, miniUSB, Bluetooth 2.0 and Infrared port. The external 16M colors display has a QVGA resolution, while the internal PDA display has a resolution of 800x352 pixels and features 16 million colors as well. The monster size Nokia E90 weighs 210 g and has a rated standby time of good 14 days. In these days imaging is just as important as everything else and the Nokia E90 Communicator doesn't fail to impress with a 3.2 megapixel auto focus camera. The communicator also boasts a FM radio and a microSD memory card slot. The Nokia E90 would start shipping in Q2 of 2007 but would have wider availability in Q3 2007 and will be sold at an expected price of 750-800EUR.
The next highlight from the Nokia portfolio is without a doubt the Nokia E65. A stylish slider, with serious equipment including quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS support, Wi-Fi, 2 megapixel camera and a 16M colors TFT display with a QVGA resolution . The Nokia E65 comes also with support for even wider email services. Nokia E65 is already available in selected markets but wider availability is expected in the first quarter of 2007 at an estimated retail price of 400EUR.
Nokia also announced an upgraded version of their highly successful QWERTY messenger the Nokia E61. The new Nokia E61i is now camera enhanced - the 2 megapixel lens now crowns the back of the device. Other changes are really minor - the most important being that the memory card slot is now a microSD one instead miniSD.
Nokia E61i will hit the shelves in Q2 of 2007 at an estimated price of again 400EUR.
Finally entering the integrated GPS market, Nokia presents the Nokia 6110 Navigator. The model designation is a somewhat a reminiscence of the highly successful mobile handset in the past the Nokia 6110. Complete with Nokia Navigator application, 3G and HSDPA support, the Nokia 6110 Navigator is a complete navigation solution which adds a nice variety to the Finnish portfolio. The Nokia 6110 Navigator also boasts a 16M colors TFT display with a QVGA resolution, a 2 megapixel camera and can capture video in QVGA resolution.

The Nokia N77 focuses on the DVB-H technology which is gaining popularity worldwide. Based on the design of Nokia N73, the Nokia N77 has stereo Bluetooth support, microSD memory card slot, a 2 megapixel camera and 3G support with video calls. The centralpiece of the Nokia N77 is without a doubt its large 2.4" 16M colors TFT display. The Nokia N77 will be commercially available in Q2 2007.
So much for smart devices, many people still look for regular mobiles with classic design and characteristics. Based on the Series 40 user interface, the Nokia 3110 classic is the new lower midrange offer of the manufacturer and again it uses the name of a rather older mobile that is long forgotten - the Nokia 3110. It will feature a 1.3 megapixel camera, a stereo FM radio, Bluetooth, Infrared and tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support.
