Nokia 500 announced as the company's first 1GHz phone
Nokia's Symbian Anna mobile operating system makes a comeback as the company unveils its new Nokia 500 handset phone
Nokia has unveiled its new Symbian Anna powered Nokia 500 handset.
Sporting a 3.2-inch nHD capacitive touchscreen with a 640 x 360p resolution display, the Nokia 500 measures up at just 14.1mm thick and comes equipped with 2GB of internal storage. As if that wasn't enough, it also boasts a tech-friendly 1GHz processor - the fastest processor to feature in any handset by the Finnish phone giant.
Pitched at the entry-level smartphone market, the Nokia 500 has been pegged with a pre-tax €150 (£130) price tag ahead of an August or September UK release date.
Whilst Nokia moves into offering MeeGo powered devices in the form of the recently unveiled Nokia N9, and with the company’s first Windows Phone 7 handset on the horizon, the 500 handset is evidence the Finnish firm isn’t done with its Symbian mobile operating system just yet.
