Mobile Giants Sony Ericsson and Nokia today unleashed a bunch of new mobile phone handsets.
Sony Ericsson announced five new phones today, the J210, Z520, K680, S600i and W600a.
PhoneMag: The new S600 features a swivel top design, a 1.3 megapixel camera, MP3 player, HTML browser, and 3D gaming with a horizontal gaming mode and a and b buttons. The S600 will also come preloaded with three games bundled on the drive including eighties classic Gauntlet.
Mobile Tracker: Sony Ericsson today announced its second Walkman branded phone, the W600a (pictured right). (The first Walkman phone was of course the W800i). Features include: 1.3 MP camera, 2 Stereo speakers with FM radio, 256MB memory (no memory card slot), Bluetooth, Infrared, and USB.
Not to be outdone, Nokia introduced seven new mobile phone models at its annual Nokia Connection 2005 event including: the 6280, 6270, 6111, 6060 and 6265.
Mobile Tracker: As part of a broad launch of new Series 40 phones, Nokia today announced the 6280 (pictured left). The 6280 is a 3G handset, with a healthy feature set: GSM/WCDMA, Series 40 3rd edition, Bluetooth, QVGA resolution display (320 x 240) with 262K colors, miniSD memory card slot, 2 megapixel main camera, and VGA camera for video calls.
Too bad the Apple/Nokia Web browser that was announced today only runs on Series 40 phones… Hmmm. (Some cool phones for Symbian’s Series 60 Platform include: the Nokia N91 which has room for up to 1,000 songs (128 kbps AAC) and a 2MP digicam. and the Lenovo P930 which includes pen input and GPS:).
