Nokia 500 Officially Confirmed as First Symbian Smartphone With 1GHz CPU
Nokia 500 is the Finns first Symbian phone with a 1GHz processor and you must know that the device was officially announced today. This model features changeable back covers, in a wide range of colours, plus the Symbian Anna OS and it’s supposed to come in Q3 with a price tag of 150 euros.
This is a low cost smartphone, with pretty good specs, that include a 3.2 inch capacitive touch display with a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels. On the back there’s a 5 megapixel camera with support for video capture and the smartphone also comes with free Nokia Maps with walk and drive navigation, among others.
There’s also FM radio on board, Internet Radio access, social media access with the Social app and under the hood you’ll find the 1GHz CPU we keep talking about. 2GB of storage memory, a microSD card slot and 3G connectivity complete the features list. The handset measures 14.1mm and weighs 93 grams, making it lighter than any Symbian^3 phone ever released.
The battery handles the powerful CU very well, providing a life of 5-7 hours in talk mode, 450+ hours in standby and 35 hours of music playback. The question is: will you get a Nokia N500 unit?
