It was highly anticipated that Nokia would line up several handsets during the official announcement of software upgrade to Symbian Belle; during the launch of Nokia 701 Helen, Nokia 600 and 700 were also introduced. While comparing the trio, Nokia 701 Helen seems to have occupied company engineers a lot more than the other two devices; it boasts of advanced components than the two although borrowing connectivity features from its sibling 700. Unlike its other two siblings, Nokia 701 Helen is equipped with an 8.0-megapixel camera; 3.0 pixels higher than 700 and 600 but same 720 pixels video recording capability.

A 1.0GHz processor is fair enough for a device in its genre; it’ll execute multitasking needs just as well; but if you require more power, be prepared to dig deeper into your pocket. The most amazing feature on Nokia 701 that places it at the top in its category is its 8GB internal storage capacity, trust me this space is enough to handle almost all applications you’ll ever need on your device, but if you need a larger capacity, you can always purchase an external MicroSD card. On top of an 8.0-megapixel rear camera, you’ll also find the dual LED flash and a front facing video call camera a plus.
