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.

Having referred to Symbian as a burning platform in the past, Nokia CEP Stephen Elop appears to be standing by the clunky operating system despite the company reporting a £323 million loss in profit.

Can the Nokia 500 and its speedy processor help save Nokia and its flailing Symbian operating system? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
