September 17, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Remember the two smartphones named Nokia 700 and 701 that were first announced in August? If you have been waiting to lay your hands on them, let’s tell you they are all set to come your way soon.

Nokia has posted on Twitter that they have begun shipping both the smartphones with Symbian Belle OS.

The Nokia 700, the smallest-ever slate-shaped smartphone, features a 3.2 inch AMOLED display. Incidentally, the device is also the smallest touchscreen smartphone in the world.

It comes powered by a 1 GHz processor and has a battery life of 4.5 hours of talktime and 465 hours on standby. Interestingly, the Finnish major has also thrown in elements that make it a green phone too.

Meanwhile, the Nokia 701 also packs a 1 GHz processor, and has a 3.5-inch IPS-based LCD display.  Well, that’s the brightest among most of the mobile phones now available in the market.

The smartphone has an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 8 GB of in-built storage, with a microSD card for expansion.

Moving on to the operating system, the Symbian Belle has many improvements over Anna you have seen. There are re-arrangeable, different-sized widgets such as clock, email, music player, favorite contacts and the calendar.

The taskbar has also been revamped and the lock screen shows missed calls and new messages. The OS has integrated Near Field Communication for tags and payments. Also, you can easily switch between apps via visual multitasking.

The smartphones are more likely to focus on Europe and Asia, rather than on US shores. Are you getting these devices?

We also have for you three videos that detail the Symbian Belle OS. Sit back and take a look at how the operating system plays on the two phones.
