Nokia aims to make 6131 "

Finland-based Nokia has launched three new phone models in a trade show in Barcelona, saying it expects the new 6131 camera phone to become one of the best-selling models in the mid-price range, a Reuters report said.


Company executives, quoted by Reuters, said the 6131 would retail for around 275 euros, excluding subsidies and value-added taxes.


"We believe this will be one of the most sold mid-range phones in the world," Kai Oistamo, head of Nokia's Mobile Phones unit, told Reuters at the 3GSM trade show in Barcelona.


The executive said he expected the phone to be sold in "tens of millions" of units.


The report said Nokia also unveiled the 6136 model, which had a camera and technology that allowed it to connect to wireless network hotspots. This, Oistamo said, would also retail for about 275 euros. The new basic model 6070 would have a retail price of about 135 euros.


The report said Nokia would start shipping the new phones in the second quarter.
