    Nokia announced Monday three new cell phones for the mid-priced market. The world's biggest phone maker, based in Finland, described the Nokia 6600 fold, the 6600 slide, and the 3600 slide as balancing "stunning and sophisticated looks with the latest in mobile functionality."

    Priced at 175 to 275 Euros (US$274 to $430), the new models will be released in the third quarter. Nokia executive Mikkel Drucker said the phones are a response to a "strong consumer demand for mobile handsets that blend elegant looks with modern features."

    OLED Screen

    The 6600 fold features a 2.13-inch OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screen with 16 million colors that is opened by a button touch. On the outer high-gloss surface, a double touch can "wake up" its display, showing such information as missed calls, incoming messages, and the time. A double tap in the right place can also put alerts on snooze, and either reject or silence incoming calls.

    A two-megapixel camera has double LED flash, and the 6600 has easy access to Yahoo Go.

    Its sibling, the 6600 slide, has a steel cover and an aluminum center key. As with the 6600 fold, a double tap can also bring up the time or alerts, or can mute incoming calls. This model has a 3.2-megapixel camera for still pictures and video, sharing can be done directly from the photo menu, and there's a 2.2-inch QVGA display for high-quality viewing.

    Not sure what you are asking. Nokia is the largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world and releases at least a dozen phones a year worldwide. If you want news about upcoming phones, sites like mobiledia or phonescoop have advance information, specs and press-style advance reviews.

    Currently, in the New Phones section of phonescoop, there is 1 Nokia phone under the "New FCC Approvals" tab (necessary US government certification) and 5 on the "New on Phone Scoop" tab. None of these phones have been released by a US carrier.

    When one of them is released, it's likely that there will be a thread about it, user reviews and discussion here on Wireless Advisor.
