Nokia Unveils Seven New Mobile Handsets

HELSINKI, Finland - Nokia Corp., the world's largest mobile phone maker, on Monday launched seven new handsets with increasingly accurate digital camera qualities and fast downloads of data and games from the Internet.

Five of the models, in the 6000 series — dubbed "simple pleasures" by the Finnish company because of their easy-to-use qualities — come with estimated price tags of $170-$460 at the top of the range. Prices were not given for two, more basic, new models in the Nokia 2000 series.

Some of the new handsets, which use 3G, or third-generation technology that enables increasingly faster connections to the Internet, also have video sharing properties, FM radio and digital sound formats like the popular MP3.

All seven models will be available globally in the second half of this year, Nokia said.


Based in Espoo just outside the Finnish capital, Nokia has sales in 130 countries and about 55,500 employees.
