Nokia World reveals three more S^3 smartphones

Besides the N8 which was already announced, Nokia showed up with 3 more S^3 smartphones.

The Nokia E7 is a 4 inch nHD resolution QWERTY slider, with AMOLED touchscreen, 8MP camera, HD video recording, HDMI and a 16GB internal storage. The 4 inch screen is IMHO too big for the nHD resolution (360x640), but the target audience may not care too much.

The next one, the Nokia C7, is a candybar smartphone with a 3.5 inch screen, which seems more appropriate for the nHD resolution. It;s got only 8GB of built-in storage, but it's expandable, unlike the E7, trough an SD card slot.

The last of the bunch is the Nokia C6-01 which is the cheapest of the bunch, with only a 3.2 inch screen, and it's a bit thicker than the the C7.

All three smartphones run S^3 and most probably have 680 MHz CPU's on board. This, for me, means that Nokia is trying to pull another fast one on it's users, because they launch these phones with these specs, while the S^4 OS that they'll release next year has a 1GHz CPU requirement. So, are you willing to spend 300-400 Euros on a phone that will be outdated in 6 months. I wouldn't.

On October 21st Nokia announced that their Symbian will be an evolving OS, meaning that there will be no more S^3 and S^4, but only Symbian, and the current Symbian(formerly S^3) will receive progressive updates until it reaches the user interface originally planned for S^4.
