The company announced the new models during its annual Nokia Connection conference, held simultaneously in Singapore and Helsinki.

Chairman and CEO Jorma Ollila launched the products, including three clamshell phones and a 3G WCDMA smartphone based on Symbian Series 60. Introducing the products, he said, "We have now sharpened our product portfolio in key areas, bringing new phones to the market in the mid-range, and adding more clamshells to our offering." Nokia's ongoing commitment to growth markets was also evident, with the launch of two new color-screen phones tailored for these areas.

Nokia's newest 3G phone, the Nokia 6630 combines 3G, EDGE and Series 60. Nokia says the Nokia 6630 is the first dual-mode, tri-band handset designed to work on 3G (WCDMA), EDGE and 2G networks in Europe, Asia and the Americas. The phone is capable of download speeds of up to 384 kbps and upload up to 128 kilobits per second. Its camera has an effective 1.23 mpixels, with 1 to 6x variable digital zoom for picture and video capture, manual exposure control, sequence mode for fast picture capture, up to 1 hour of video recording and wireless printing directly from the handset utilizing solutions by HP and Kodak. With the built-in memory and in-box MultiMediaCard (MMC), the Nokia 6630 features 74MB of memory in its standard configuration.
