Nokia releases three mobile phones to suit everyone's tastes

Finnish manufacturer Nokia has released two mobile phones based sharing the same naming convention to suit the tastes of the (discerning) masses as well as a third equally good looking one.

Nokia went for a more sophisticated audience with the curvaceous, sexy and trendy lines; the 6600 clamshell comes with a 54mm OLED display complete with 3G connectivity, a 2 megapixel camera and two LED flashes.

The 6600 slide has a slightly larger 2.2-inch QVGA display, a 3.2 megapixel camera and integrated Nokia Maps while offering a double-tap option which allows you to put the phone in sleep mode or even reject a call.

Both phones have touchscreen capabilities with a measly 18MB onboard memory.

As for the 3600, It also comes with a smaller display and a 3.2 megapixel camera as well plus it allows users to cancel background noise using some smart technology.

The phones will be out by July and will offer an optional Bluetooth handset as well.

Expect Nokia's 3G capable phones to be best sellers at launch thanks to the manufacturer's excellent relations with network providers.

Nokia released a 6600 sometimes back which turned out to be a rather popular model.
