Nokia 6700 Slide and 7230 budget cameraphones outed

Nokia have outed two new budget sliders with a strong emphasis on media sharing, the Nokia 6700 Slide and the Nokia 7230.  The 6700 Slide packs a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, together with onboard editing software, while the 7230 gets a more modest 3.2-megapixel camera.

Both have 3G for high-speed uploads (though only according to the press release; the 7230 data sheet only mentions EDGE), and integration with various (unspecified) social networks that we're expecting to include Nokia's own Ovi system and probably Facebook and MySpace.  The 6700 Slide has a 2.2-inch QVGA 16.7m color display, FM radio, mediaplayer and microSD card slot, while the 7230 has a 2.4-inch display.

Both handsets are expected to arrive in Q1 2010, with the Nokia 6700 Slide priced at around €160 ($239) and the Nokia 7230 at €100 ($150) (both pre-tax and pre-subsidy).  Each will be available in various colors.
