Hoje a Nokia anunciou o lançamento de 3 novos aparelhos celulares, o Nokia E7, Nokia C6-01 e o Nokia C7, todos com o sistema operacional Symbianˆ3, que estarão disponíveis antes do final deste ano. Seguindo a linha da maioria dos fabricantes, os novos modelos C6-01 e C7 oferecem o acesso imediato às redes sociais, aplicativos, música e jogos, e o Nokia E7 é um dispositivo projetado para o usuário corporativo, contando com uma vasta gama de aplicações para o escritório instaladas e um nível maior de segurança na plataforma.
O Nokia C6-01 e o Nokia C7 possuem telas touch de 3,2 polegadas e 3,5 respectivamente, com a resolução de 640 x 360 pixels, com utilização de aço inoxidável e vidro, e o E7 foi desenvolvido com uma tela touch de 4 polegadas e um teclado QWERTY slide-out. A câmera de 8 MP que captura imagens a 720p pode ser encontrada nos três modelos, e assim como o N8, o Nokia E7 tem saída HDMI para você assistir seus vídeos em um televisor de alta definição Dolby Digital Plus Surround Sound .
Na minha opinião o E7 com sua grande tela e teclado QWERTY completo é a melhor opção, mas será que o Symbianˆ3 será forte o suficiente para enfrentar a concorrência do IOS 4 do iPhone e o Froyo do Android? Vamos esperar para ver!! Veja o Press Release deste lançamento da Nokia.
