603 also runs the latest version of Symbian called Belle. It is targeted at

Black technology and a resolution of 640 x 360, a five megapixel camera with
digital zoom and 720p video recording capabilities.
The phone will come in black or white and those looking to

(red, green, black, white, yellow and purple in case you were wondering.)
The handset will come with 2GB of internal memory, expandable

The headset is available in black, blue, pink, green and
