Nokia launches phones, announces Facebook deal

The world's largest mobile phone maker Nokia launched new phones on Wednesday and announced a location-based service deal with social networking site Facebook.

Nokia said its X6 and X3 models would ship in the fourth quarter, priced at 450 euros ($641) and 115 euros respectively.
It also unveiled a smaller version of its N97 smartphone, to be priced at 450 euros, and said it was on the verge of selling 2 million units of the original N97. Nokia said N97 sales were outpacing sales of its previous flagship model, the N95.
Nokia also said it had agreed on a deal with Facebook where people could update their location and status directly to the social networking site via a Nokia Ovi account.
The first phone to support the service will be the N97 mini, which will start shipping in October.
Nokia shares were flat at 9.41 euros at 0802 GMT.
