Sneak peak at Nokia’s new 2010 handsets

Last night Nokia unveiled a range of its latest mobile handsets that will be coming to Australian shores sometime next year. The range includes eagerly anticipated models like the N900, N97 Mini and the X6.

The Nokia N900 was one of the standout devices at the launch and according to Nokia, it delivers computer-grade performance in a compact QWERTY and 3.5 inch touch screen mobile.

The N900 runs on a Linux-based Maemo operating system has 32GB of storage and access to 3G data networks. One impressive aspect of the new handset is that its web browser is based on Mozilla technology and gives users the ability to multitask several applications or web browsers at once.

Other features include the ability to personalise up to four different home screens, five megapixel camera and Ovi services.

The second handset shown off was the N97 Mini, which is a companion device to the recently released N97. The main difference between this and the N97 is that it is much smaller with a tilting 3.2 inch touch screen and slightly reconfigured QWERTY keypad.

Another key feature is that it will be optimised for social navigation and is the first mobile to feature the Ovi lifecasting application, to publish information directly to Facebook from their homescreen.

The final new addition is the Nokia X6 and is being promoted as an entertainment handset.

The X6 features quick access to the Nokia Music Store and up to 35 hours of music playback, access to media sharing websites, three pre-installed Ovi games and a 16:9 widescreen optimised for viewing photos, watching movies and browsing the web.

Currently all three mobile handsets do not have an official release date or recommended retail price.
