Nokia 870 Spotted
While news of the lower-end Nokia 330 media player has only just surfaced as an inexpensive counterpart to the 770, the latter's successor is already well into development, forum members at Internet Tablet Talk have discovered. A photo and preliminary details of the upcoming handheld appeared courtesy of an anonymous source that confirmed Nokia's plans to improve on its earlier design. The 870 is expected to be slightly larger horizontally, improving the resolution and visibility of the design for web browsing. A webcam has also been added, and an enlarged speaker grille suggests an increased focus on VoIP communication, say reports. Few other details are known, though mobile broadband access and WiFi are widely anticipated. Click through for the complete photo.
