The Finish company Nokia launched three new Symbian-based smartphones. The Nokia 700, Nokia 701 and Nokia 600 devices will all have the Symbian Belle OS installed, which is the latest version of the operating system.
The Symbian Belle OS adds a number of features, including being able to share photos, videos and contacts with just one tap with other NFC-enabled smartphones. As well as allowing content to be shared between devices, NFC capabilities allow any of the three new smartphones to pair with NFC-enabled mobile accessories such as speakers or Bluetooth headphones and headsets. To extend the range of available NFC-enabled accessories, Nokia is also announcing the launch of the Nokia Essence Bluetooth Stereo Headset, which can be paired with any NFC-enabled smartphone simply by tapping the two devices together.
