Nokia claims the Nokia 600 as the loudest smartphone ever, runs the latest and greatest Symbian Belle.
Aimed purely at youngsters and the music friendly crowd, this may be the “Belle” version of the Nokia X6. It shares the same specs as the Nokia 700 except for the screen which is plain TFT.
The 600 is full plastic and features the loudest speaker in a smartphone ( measures 106 phon, sames as the Nokia X1-00 ), it has an internal FM antenna for wireless Radio. This phone is an entertainment hub considering how multimedia rich the Symbian OS is.
This too, has NFC like the 700/701 and features all the innovative things Nokia has put into implementation for NFC.
Priced at 180 euros, this will be best smartphone in that price range no doubt about that. Will sell loads in emerging markets if marketed right.

Here goes the rumor mill again. This time its Reuters reporting that Apple suppliers are purportedly buiding a cheaper version of the iPhone4 with just 8 GB of flash memory ( Are flash memory really costly at all these days ? i dont believe it )
Here’s what Reuters has to say :
(Reuters) – Asian suppliers to Apple Inc have begun manufacturing a lower-priced version of its hot-selling iPhone 4 with a smaller 8 gigabyte flash drive, according to two people with knowledge of the matter.
Apple usually sources from Toshiba and Samsung for flash memories but this time it looks like some other company is making it and doesnt want public to know its name. ( Hmmm fishy ). According to them, the 8GB version of the iPhone4, which initially launched with 16 and 32 GB version in black and then in white. Also, interesting to note if the flash memory alone will be a cost cutting factor, it can also be the display, which would be like the iPod, just TFT not IPS. We shall know soon.
More questions arise in my mind :
* Is this the iPhone nano everyone is talking about ?
* Will it launch only in emerging markets like India, China.. etc ?
* Will it launch as a TD-SCDMA device for China mobile which is the world’s biggest operator ?
Let’s hope all these questions are answered by Apple in a few weeks. Looking forward to cheaper iPhone 4 or the standard iPhone 5 ?
