Nokia 603

 

The Nokia 603 is the latest addition to Nokia's Symbian Belle line-up, which the Finns' have billed as a "colourful, affordable, no compromise? handset.

Like the newly-released Nokia 500, the higher-spec 603 packs a 1GHz single-core processor, which reportedly makes-way for a browser 4x faster than on previous Symbian handsets. It also comes running the latest version of Nokia's OS - Symbian Belle -...

Nokia 603

 

Price, bright screen, good camera, excellent GPS (with free maps), MP3, radio, social networks, web navigation + a lot of useful apps. Menus are intuitives, no need to jailbreak. Isn't it happiness

Great phone for the price
