Nokia launches the 801T for China TD

Published by at

Designed exclusively for China's TD-SCDMA 3G network, Nokia has announced a new Symbian-powered smartphone, the 801T, described as 'a special design for business-focussed elite high-end users'. It's notable for being the 'industry's first stainless steel unibody smartphone' and has a 4" CBD display, NFC, an 8 megapixel EDoF camera with dual-LED flash, 720p HD video recording and built-in CMMB mobile TV (with antenna). More below.

801TFrom the press release (in Chinese):

The Nokia 801T is a continuation of Nokia exquisite craftsmanship, and is simple yet elegant... Its 4-inch large CBD touch screen is perfect to display messages, information and photo content; there's a built-in telescopic TV antenna, so that business people can experience anytime, anywhere mobile TV (CMMB) to bring an audio-visual feast.

Nokia 801T largely fills the gaps in the field of high-end TD (3G) products... It features a Nokia TD-SCDMA smart terminal using NFC technology in the first of its kind. For business users, NFC functionality makes work and life more efficient and convenient.

Built-in CMMB mobile TV, capable of receiving TV signals with clear, smooth playback quality, can sync TV shows, and does not generate data traffic during playback, so that business people can spend their leisure time watching their favourite TV programs.
