First announced in August 24, Nokia’s brightest phone, the Nokia 701 is now here in Malaysia.
The C7 lookalike Nokia 701 boasts the distinction of having the brightest screen of any smartphone with a display capable of pushing out 1000nits, 300nits brighter than the former display brightness king, the LG Optimus Black at 700nits while the Retina Display on the iPhone 4 pushes a luminance of just 500nits.
The 701 features a 3.5-inch IPS LCD ClearBlack Display (640×360 pixel) which is also toughen by Gorilla Glass. Powering the Symbian Belle device is a 1Ghz processor with 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Imaging is comes in the form of an 8MP rear camera with dual-LED flash capable of shooting 720p HD video and a VGA front-facing unit.
The Nokia retails for RM1,130 outright and is available now.
Nokia has announced a trio of new devices – Nokia 600, 700 and the 701 which claims to be the loudest, smallest and brightest phones from the Finnish maker ever. All 3 are powered with a 1GHz processor, comes with NFC and runs on Nokia’s latest Symbian Belle, which is a new Symbian^3 update after Anna.
Starting with the Nokia 600, it claims to be Nokia’s loudest smart phones ever with its speaker rated at 106 Phons. The 600 has a 3.2″ nHD screen that supports 640×360 resolution, 2GB internal storage and has a 5MP camera at the back, capable of shooting 720p HD videos. In terms of design, it comes with a curved back design and overall it weighs 100g.
Next is the Nokia 700 which Nokia claims to be their smallest smart phone ever. It weighs 97g and has dimensions of 110mm long, 50.7mm width and with a thickness of 9.7mm. Despite its smaller size, it comes with 3.2″ Clear Black AMOLED display with toughen Gorilla glass. Internally there’s 2GB of storage and has a 5MP camera at the back which also can do 720p HD videos. The Nokia 700 is said to be Nokia’s greenest phone as it uses lots of recycled materials which in return is also 100% recyclable.
Last but not least is the Nokia 701. It certainly looks like a Nokia C7 but boasts being the brightest screen ever for a smart phone. Earlier on, the LG Optimus Black was crowned the brightest screen at 700nits. At the present time, Nokia has yet to release any numbers to measure its brightness. If it claims to be the brightest, it has to be at least 701 nits, which coincidentally is the number for the model. Unlike the C7 which uses AMOLED, the 701 is using IPS LCD Clearback display which is also toughen by Gorilla Glass. Inside there’s 8GB of internal storage and at the back has a 8MP camera with dual LED flash.

Earlier on Nokia has announced its Anna software roll out to first generation Symbian^3 devices but only to be pulled out from Malaysia. Nokia Malaysia claims that Anna isn’t ready for Malaysia as we are supposed to be getting the localised version of the update.
Now Nokia Malaysia has announced that it is officially available for the Nokia N8, Nokia C7, Nokia C6-01 and Nokia E7. However a check at Nokia Malaysia’s Anna page revealed that Nokia N8 is labeled as coming soon. Most people have also feedback that they can’t enable split-screen messaging, a new feature which lets you do keyword input while still staying on the original screen. Unfortunately even with this new announcement, split-screen isn’t available for users in Malaysia/Singapore. Instead they will be releasing this feature in the next Anna software ugprade.
To get to know the features, head after the break for Anna introduction video.
UPDATE: Nokia Malaysia has announced that Anna update for first generation Symbian^3 devices isn’t officially ready for Malaysia and some users may experience issues upgrading. For those who managed to upgrade to Anna, it’s confirmed that we won’t be having keyword split-view as some countries we’re exempted for now. However they have confirmed to be working towards having it available at all countries in the next update. Anna updates for Malaysia will be published here but so far no dates were given.
To download the update, you can do it via Ovi Suite through a computer or you can download OTA through SW Update on the device. The first software update to Anna takes about 25MB to download. After completion, there are 2 more Anna updates about 58MB to bring it up to the latest version.
So what’s new with Anna? Apart from the rounded icons which is the interface design for Nokia right now, it brings a host of improvements in usability. The first obvious improvement is the availability of full QWERTY keyboard on portrait mode. Previously you only get T9 keyboard in portrait and full QWERTY is only available in landscape mode. Although this is good, some time is needed to get used to it as the keys are tiny while the Backspace button is placed at the bottom right, instead of the top. Another improvement is the availability of having split screen which we can’t seem to find right now. This lets you see the original contents of the page while typing instead of having the full screen taken over for input.
Browser seems to be improved as it is slightly smoother than before. The navigation and menus look better. For business users they have added meeting request support and couple of encryption enhancements. For the full list of enhancements, you can read the previous post or head to Nokia Conversation Blog here.

Nokia’s new range of Symbian^3 devices with AMOLED screen offers an always on display clock during standby mode. Power consumption is very minimal as AMOLED screens are very efficient with unused pixels being completely switched off. So is there a way to customise this screen further?
Nokia Beta Labs has released a Nokia Screen which gives you more standby screen styles and options to stand out from the crowd. There are 8 styles to choose from with a 9th screen option which works as a subtle bedside clock that can be activated at your desired time.
