Today was Nokia's turn to unveil their new handsets at Mobile World Congress. Nokia chose to announce two mid-range smartphones and two devices which will sit at the lower end of the market.
The Nokia Lumia 720 is certainly the one to look at and it will be available in five colours. Clearly encouraged by recent success of the Lumia 920, some bold colours have again been chosen and the device will launch in Yellow, Red, Cyan plus the typical Black and White too. Making this device tick is a 1GHz dual-core processor and an internal memory of 8GB - this can be expanded by 64GB with a microSD card. As you would expect this handset is using Windows 8.
The display is impressive too, a full 4.3-inch screen made from toughened glass. Also included is a 6.7-megapixel camera with HD video whilst the camera itself uses the iconic Carl Zeiss lens. We are excited by this announcement and look foward to it's arrival towards the end of Q1.
Also showcased in Barcelona was the Nokia Lumia 520. This handset is being marketed as a "more fun smartphone". Again it comes in the range of five colours to offer massive choice and is not too disimilar to the 720. The 520 is another Lumia to use Windows 8, it replicates the 1GHz dual processor however has a slightly smaller 4.0" display.
In order to keep the price down Nokia have chosen to omit certain features so you will find no NFC whilst the camera is more what you would expect of a mid range smartphone with no flash and no Carl Zeiss optics. The Nokia Lumia 520 is available for pre-order by clicking here
At the lower end of the market Nokia also announced the Nokia 105. This handset runs on Series 30, has a 1.4" screen and 8GB internal memory. It joins the range of phones which is dust and splash proof with the battery standby of 35 days being the outstanding feature.
Alongside this is the Nokia 301 which has a host of low-end features such as a 3.2 megapixel camera and 64MB of internal memory. This device will offer users video streaming too.
