Nokia says their three new handsets are "Beautiful to use."  I say they look like pretty cool mid-range feature phones, and seem to run the Series 40 OS, so I might just wind up believing Nokia on this one.  Series 40 is more featured and flexible than your average platform phone, but much easier for the average consumer to use than Series 60 - the XpressMusic phone that T-Mobile carries in the US?  That's a Series 40 slider, and it's great to use (if a little chunky).  So Nokia could sell a ton of these, given that most of the world doesn't actually shell out for super high-end cell phones.

First up is the 3G 6600 fold, with it's oh so smooth push-to-unfold mechanism, 2.13" OLED display with 16 million colors, and hidden outer display that emerges when you double-tap it.  There's also a 2MP camera with LED flash and video capture. The whole thing is finished in a high-gloss material that hopefully won't be as much of a fingerprint magnet as the pictures promise it will be.

Next, the 6600 slide is "one of Nokia's smallest sliders to date," and features a steel cover, aluminum center key (seriously, the press release says that), and a 2.2" QVGA display with 16 million colors, 3.2 MP camera, and Nokia Maps (but no built-in GPS chip).

And then there's the 3600 slide, which "aims to win hearts with a blend of tasteful colors, materials and tactile finishes, and minds with a full range of the latest features."  Okay, then.  This one has noise cancellation for clearer voice calls (a Nokia first), and features a 3.2MP camera with autofocus, flash, and TV-Out.  Looks like this one will come in your choice of black or red.
