Nokia on Friday launched three new smartphones - Nokia 700, Nokia 701 and Nokia 600 – powered with Symbian Belle’s 'Just Tap’ Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.
At an event in Bangalore, Nokia along with Divum, a Bangalore based developer firm controlled an all-terrain vehicle using the Nokia 701. The App running on the Symbian Belle device allows users to steer the vehicle through WiFi and lets them control the drive from anywhere on the globe. The camera fitted on the vehicle streams live video back to the Nokia device. This also brings motion sensing technology to real life, enabling users to steer and manoeuvre the vehicle by simply tilting the device.
At the launch, T. S. Sridhar, Regional General Manager- South, Nokia India said, “The smartphone market in India has rapidly evolved and is at a very interesting stage. Consumers are looking beyond basic functionality, seeking innovative technology in all smartphones. We believe our latest range will push the boundaries for future devices in this segment.”
Each of the three smartphones represents a distinct set of features - the Nokia 700 with the most compact touch screen, the Nokia 701 with the brightest mobile display and the Nokia 600 is touted as the ‘loudest entertainment smartphone’.
With the launch of these products, Nokia now has four NFC-enabled smartphones in the market in addition to NFC enabled accessories.
The Nokia 600 is priced at Rs. 12,999, the Nokia 700 at Rs. 18,099 and the Nokia 701 at Rs. 18,999. All three models are available across the country.
