Symbian Belle is around the march and the leader of the pack could be the Nokia 701. It busts out the particular big guns - a 1, 000 nit floodlight of your screen, a fast, modern processor and also an up-to-the-minute connectivity package, complete together with NFC.
If you're experiencing a deja vu, rest assured it's nothing uncommon. What we have here is any Nokia C7 reincarnate (the gilded Oro also). It may not be a fresh design, but it's fairly attractive and with a great deal of metal used around the shell. Additionally, recycling a design seems to are becoming commonplace in the mobile world (*cough* iPhone4S *cough*).

We already mentioned the screen in the preview and we'll look at it again - it's hands-down the particular brightest mobile screen we've tested. Nokia assure 1, 000 nits of brightness each time a typical LCD usually runs in the particular 300-600 range. The Nokia 701 actually goes slightly beyond the promised value - don't miss our test inside the hardware chapter.
As for the phone's innards, Nokia 701 clicks at 1GHz and packs 512MB regarding RAM, a quantum leap over what Symbian phones used thus far. The buzzwords are Symbian Belle and also NFC. Belle was impressive in our own dedicated review, making a convincing case that Symbian has finally trapped to Android and iOS. As regarding NFC, Nokia and other phone makers along with carriers and creditors are lauding it as the subsequent big thing. Not just in cellphones, but our lifestyle in general. Pay along with your phone, open doors with your cell phone, buy tickets with it - when Nokia have their way, mobile phones may well be more important than your wallet and pair of keys.
