March 2009 Upcoming and New Phones


Written on 3/03/2009 08:00:00 AM by poison_ivy

So here's another set of new mobile phones for you to choose from for those new buyers as well as those thinking of upgrading their mobile phones.

Nokia N97

One of the phone I've been looking forward to, the Nokia N97 was first reported by SymbianGuru to be available by the end of March, however, Expansys already put up the N97 on their site for pre-order and the expected release date is June 2009. June seems too far away so I'm guessing The N97 will have an earlier release date since if Samsung releases their Omnia HD earlier, then the N97 will have no place in the market.

Nokia 6720

For those budget conscious individuals, you might want to consider the Nokia 6720 which has a quarter 2 release date. Since the 6720 is a midrange phone, I'm expecting it will be released earlier, if not in the UK then in the Asian markets. It's HSDPA capable, has TV-out, GPS and A-GPS, 5 megapixel camera, 3.5mm audio jack, Radio with RDS, and TV-out.

Nokia E75

MobileChoiceUK has the Nokia E75's availability pegged at March 13th. The E75 is HSDPA capable, has 3 megapixel camera with autofocus, FM radio, WiFi, A-GPS, FM radio, and Bluetooth. What's different about the Nokia E75 is that it has a dual keypad. A regular phone pad on its face and a slide-out QWERTY keypad.

Samsung S8300 Tocco Ultra Touch

The Samsung S8300 is the update to the much loved (or hated) Samsung Tocco. So why would you want to upgrade to this phone? Well, for starters is has a 2.8 inch OLED capacitive touchscreen, has an accelerometer, HSDPA capable, proximity sensor, has microSD slot, Bluetooth A2DP, 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash, face detection, smile detection and geo-tagging, GPS and A-GPS, FM player with RDS, and can playback DiVX videos. BTW, the March release was reported by Mobiletor and and Mobile-Phones. Update: Vodafone will be releasing the Samsung Tocco Ultra Touch on March 12th.

Sony Ericsson W305 Yao

Okay, so I'm tired of Sony Ericsson releasing the same phones under different names and branding. They've done with with the Sony Ericsson S302 and W302 and now they're doing it to the Sony Ericsson F305. The Sony Ericsson W305 Yao will be the Walkman version of the F305 sans the gaming buttons but all other specs are similar. WTF?!!! Why the heck rename it? Just make a PSP phone already and see your sales shot up instead of releasing boring phones or renaming already existing ones. Release date from

LG Arena

The sim free LG Arena is set for a release date of March 13th according to phoneslimited. If I'm not mistaken, the LG Arena is LG's flagship phone during the Mobile Word Congress. Check my LG Arena preview for a more in depth look. You can preorder the LG Arena here.
