When Frank Sinatra died, his fans knew he wasn't coming back. When Elvis died, his fans simply refused to believe he wasn't coming back. Mostly because they're a demented bunch. But when Nokia's Xpress-On covers seemed to have kicked the bucket, their fans simply wondered, "How am I going to express my individuality now?"
Well, we're happy to tell you that Xpress-On fascias are coming back in the form of Nokia's new Supernova range of handsets, namely the 7610, 7510, 7310 and 7210.
The leader of the pack is the 7610 Supernova -- a slider handset running the Series 40 Symbian OS, weighing in at 99g, and not to be confused with Nokia's 7610 from 2004.
This EDGE phone features a 240x320-pixel screen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, dedicated music and camera keys, and an LED flash. We believe it also has a 3.5mm headphone socket, but we've been unable to confirm that at the moment.
There's also a slot for microSD expansion of the internal 30MB of memory, stereo Bluetooth, quad-band compatibility and about 8 hours of talk time. It'll be available in the third quarter of this year for roughly £180 unlocked.
