In this article I will provide an overview of the new Nokia 701, a new smartphone which comes with a spec list including the likes of a high resolution touchscreen, fast internet browsing and an 8 megapixel camera.
Similar to a number of other Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 701 has rounded corners and a metallic finish on the casing, so it certainly looks the part. The front of the handset is dominated by the amply proportioned 3.5 inch LED-backlit IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen. This incorporates the same touchscreen technology as the iPhone 4, although the resolution is somewhat less, at 360x 640; but is sure to be fine for the needs of most users.
The Nokia 701 has decent levels of onboard storage capacity, with 8 GB included as standard. There is also the added bonus of a built in microSD slot, which can accommodate a memory card of up to 32 GB, so an entire music collection can comfortably be stored on the handset. Equally, videos, applications, photos and other files can be stored within the handset so they are instantly available.
Decent data download speeds means that the Nokia 701 is a competent web browsing phone. In areas where 3G coverage is available, download speeds of up to 14.4 megabytes per second can be achieved, meaning web pages load quickly and YouTube videos load with minimal buffering.
As mentioned, the Nokia 701 comes with an 8 megapixel camera, which means the handset performs very well as a cameraphone. The 8 megapixel camera with a resolution of 3264x 2448 has quickly become the standard for most new smartphones, and is capable of producing good quality still images, as well as videos in 720p HD. The camera comes with fixed focus, dual-LED flash and face detection, so good results are assured in all conditions.
The latest version of Symbian is the operating system of choice for the Nokia 701, and offers several attractive traits such as customisable homescreens and downloadable apps and widgets from Nokia’s Ovi store. The handset packs a powerful 1 GHz processor under the hood, and although it may not be up to par with newer smartphones with dual-core processors, it does the job well, and is perfect for what is, at the end of the day, a mid range smartphone.
The Nokia 701 makes for a good alternative to mainstream smartphones like the iPhone series and the prolific Samsung and HTC devices which are proving so popular. If you are looking for something different with distinctive styling and a solid all round spec list, the Nokia 701 could be right up your street.
