Nokia has announced the latest update for the Symbian operating system and five new phones.

The Nokia 700, 701 and 600 will run the latest version of the operating system, Symbian Belle, while the Nokia 100 and 101 will be basic, affordable devices.

Symbian Belle

Symbian Belle is the latest update to Nokia’s doomed operating system. The new incarnation offers a host of new features: one-tap NFC sharing and pairing; an increase to six customisable home pages; the ability to use different sized widgets; a pull down menu for notifications; and an improved web browser.

Of the new handsets, the Nokia 700 isn’t just Nokia’s smallest smartphone, it’s also apparently the ‘most compact touch monoblock smartphone in the world’. High praise indeed.

If a small smartphone doesn’t float your boat there’s always the Nokia 701 – Nokia’s brightest smartphone. According to Nokia, its ClearBlack screen make the 701 the brightest mobile phone screen in the world – although Nokia don’t explain why the 701′s screen is any brighter than the 700′s (which features the same technology).

If you’re after something with a bit more bang than the world’s smallest or brightest smartphone, then how about the world’s loudest smartphone? Yep, Nokia claim this title it’s new Nokia 600, which has a loudspeaker that is 106 ‘phons’ loud.

Nokia also announced two affordable devices  – the Nokia 100 and 101. However it’s unlikely that either will be released in the UK.
