New Nokia 'the antidote to the Carbon Arte'

Trading in an old Nokia could help buy either device

A new handset from Nokia has been described as the perfect antidote to some of the manufacturer's higher-end models.

Trusted Reviews states this week that the firm's 7100 Supernova device is one of the latest phones to be launched by Nokia and comes with a price tag that is in direct opposition to it's "ultra-expensive 8800 Carbon Arte".

It is noted that although both run using the most recent incarnation of the Symbian S40 operating system, there are some major differences to keep in mind as well.

The 8800 Carbon Arte clearly targets those with a lot of expendable income, but the 7100 Supernova is more focused on younger users looking for a more affordable option.

However, the review suggests the latter may not be the model for those recycling mobile phones in favour of a photography-focussed device, as the 1.3-megapixel snapper is "a bit of a disaster".

Shoppers looking for a Nokia cameraphone may like to consider the N86 - which features an eight-megapixel sensor with Carl Zeiss optics.
