Product: Nokia 7700 Price: Not yet announced Pros: Nokia's first serious effort at a PDA/phone hybrid Cons: Some people may think it resembles a burrito Product: Nokia 7200 Price: Not yet announced Pros: First Nokia clam-shell phone, customisable, funky features Cons: None significant Aiming to fortify its weakening position as the world's dominant mobile phone brand, Nokia last week announced two new handsets that promise to push the vendor in two new directions. Both phones are firsts for Nokia - its first clamshell phone and its first to dispense with a keypad. Unfortunately, neither will be available until early next year. The most striking of the two is the big-screen 7700, a touch-screen PDA that is a radical departure from Nokia's old 9 series Communicators. Where the old Communicators were criticised for stuffing low-tech circuitry into a hi-tech case, the 7700 manages to be a pretty sophisticated mobile with a burrito body that looks like the N-Gage's big brother. On the communications side, the 7700 is a triband phone that supports both Edge and high-speed circuit-switched data (HSCSD). If you want something to slip into a pocket or handbag, though, this is not for you. The 7700 measures 133x79x21mm and weighs 183g. The handset sports all the features geekier users long for: touch-screen, office document editing, video and stereo, and HTML/XHTML support through the excellent mobile Opera Web browser. All those data features take up space, so the phone includes 32 megabytes of memory, with room for more on a Secure Digital memory card. The 7200 comes with a mere 4MB of memory and is just a dual-band, though it also supports Edge and HSCSD. But as Nokia's first clamshell, it is certain to be a much bigger seller than the 7700. Unlike the 7200, which comes in a choice of black or white, the clamshell is changeable. Measuring 86x50x26mm, the 7200 will also fit in a pocket. Both phones come with built-in FM radios, stereo outputs, music players that support MP3, AAC, RealAudio, Wav and Midi, and voice recorders. They each have a VGA camera for 640x480 photos and video, and both sport 65,000 colour displays. They also have Bluetooth for wireless desktop synchronisation or connecting external devices.
