Details of the upcoming Nokia 7310 Supernova were recently published accidentally by Nokia and then swiftly removed. This attractive looking fashion phone forms part of a rumoured trio of handsets including the 7510 clamshell and 7610 slider phone. Perhaps a successor to the L'Amour series, the Supernova range looks to be much more conventional.

We don't know much about the other two handsets, but we do have very good details of the technical specifications of the Nokia 7310 Supernova itself.

This is a lightweight GSM only device weighing 83 grams and measuring 106.5 x 45.4 x 11.95mm. There's a 2" 240 x 320 pixel display in 16.7 million colours, and the handset runs the familiar Series 40 interface.

Internal memory is 20GB, expandable using microSD cards up to 4GB.  On the back is a basic 2 megapixel camera with a video capture resolution of just 176 x 144 pixels at 15 fps. So the 7310 Supernova's camera is not great, but probably good enough for most users.

As well as having a multimedia player that supports MP3, AAC and WMA formats, the Nokia 7310 Supernova also has an FM radio, stereo Bluetooth and a 2.5mm TV/audio output connector. In addition, the 7310 has USB 2.0 connectivity. This means that the Nokia 7310 looks to be a capable music player, although it does lack dedicated media keys. The S40 operating system includes a web browser, email client and the standard Nokia PIM functions, so it will be easy to use but will lack the expandability of an S60 smartphone.

The 860mAh battery gives the 7310 up to 4 hours talktime and 12 days standby time. It uses a pretty standard AC-3X charger, and there's also a stereo wired headset in the box. We're pleased to see a full set of ports on the 7310 rather than the annoying single port on the 6500 Classic which is quite annoying.

No pricing or availability information is currently available, although we think that this will retail at around €150 / £120 / $250, about the same price as the similarly specified but heavier Nokia 6300. There are some rumours that the 7310 is already available in some Asian markets, although we cannot confirm this yet.
