The company announced Monday that the phones will be released in Asia in the third quarter of this year.

The Nokia 6600 fold has a 2.13-inch OLED screen that can display up to 16 million colors. Outer displays can be activated by tapping the phone twice to see the time, incoming messages, missed calls, and other information. Users can also tap the phone twice to set alarms to snooze, silence ringers, or reject incoming calls.

The device is built for comfort and speed, according to Nokia, which says the contours allow for easy use while the 3G technology enables speedy access to Internet services like Yahoo Go and Flickr. The phone is equipped with a 2-megapixel camera with double LED flash.

The Nokia 6600 slide is covered in shiny steel. It also responds to tapping. The new slide phone comes with a 3.2-megapixel camera and a 2.2-inch QVGA display. An integrated Nokia Maps application can be enhanced with Nokia's Bluetooth GPS Module LD-4W and a separate navigation license. The navigation features are designed for walkers as well as drivers.

The company's new Nokia 3600 slide also has high-gloss shine but comes in soft ceramic paint colors. It is the first Nokia product to cancel background noise for clearer communication. It contains a built-in music player. An optional 4-GB MicroSD card can hold up to 3,000 songs. The 3.2-megapixel camera has autofocus and 2 LED flash. The phone connects to most television sets so users can easily share pictures and videos. It also contains preinstalled Nokia Maps and comes with the option of a Bluetooth GPS Module LD-4W. Nokia said its maps application holds more than 15 million points of interest.

Finally, Nokia unveiled a matching new Bluetooth Headset BH-803 with an optional ear loop, touch-sensitive volume control, and voice dialing.
