Nokia announced two new slider handsets at its Finnish headquarters Tuesday. We don't know exactly which markers will get the phones first, but models include support for North American cellular networks.

The 6700 Slide is a variation of the previously announced Nokia 6700 classic. It comes in six bright colors: aluminum, pink, blue, red, lime, and purple. Its features include a 5-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, a speakerphone, messaging, a personal organizer, e-mail and chat, an FM radio, a music player, and Bluetooth. Set for a first quarter, 2010 release, the 6700 Slide should cost about $240.

Inside you'll find a speakerphone, a 3.2-megapixel camera, messaging, access to social networking and Nokia's Ovi Store, a microSD card slot, a FM radio, Bluetooth, and a personal organizer. The 7230 also should be out in the first quarter of next year; the price will be about $150.
