Nokia unveils glossy trio of handsets in Asia

The Finnish giant is marketing these three phones as "beautiful to use" even though we think they look just like regular handsets.

Following a pair of new XpressMusic handsets last week, Nokia today unveiled three more handsets: the 6600 folder, 6600 slider, and 3600 slider.

The Finnish giant is marketing these three phones as "beautiful to use" even though we think they look just like regular handsets. According to Aki Laine, the man responsible for the 6600 clamshell, the phone is designed to fit the contours of your face (which sounds like the "banana" phone sometime back), and there's no need to manually open the handset because there's a dedicated button to do that. The pictures of the 6600 slider, on the other hand, remind us of the current N81. Both the 6600 models feature a "tapping" function that can be used to silence and reject incoming calls.

The 3600 slider is supposedly the first Nokia phone to feature background noise cancellation and includes a 3.2-megapixel AF camera with dual LED flashes and TV-out connectivity. All three phones are expected to be available in Asia in the third quarter of this year.
