With a codename like Supernova, you would think that the specs on the newly unveiled Nokia 7100s slider phone would be out of this world. Unfortunately, it looks like the 7100s is approaching the entry-level end of the market instead. Too bad, because this phone actually looks pretty good.
Meant to be a newer but cheaper alternative to the already available Nokia 6710 slider, the Nokia 7100s Supernova gets equipped with Symbian S40, a 262k color QVGA display, FM radio, music player, Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, Opera Mini, integrated email support, Flash Lite 2.1.1 support, a 1.3 megapixel camera, and microSD expansion. It’s a tri-band GSM/EDGE (900/1800/1900) phone, so it may not be the best option for North Americans. It also lacks in 3G, if that’s your kind of thing.
Details surrounding the price and release date have not yet been announced.
