Nokia 701 "brightest screen" puzzle solved - 1000 nits come to the rescue of sunlight visibility

Nokia 701
Nokia 701 takes over from the LG Optimus Black the "smartphone with the brightest screen" title, as Nokia just revealed on its Facebook page that the 701 sports 1000 nits of luminance. We have been wondering what this "brightest" claim means ever since the Nokia 701 was announced, and now we have our solid number.

To put things in perspective, the iPhone 4 sports shows around 550 nits, the LG Optimus Black 700 nits, and the only time we've heard about 1000 nits of brightness on a mobile display was when Sony touted its WhiteMagic technology recently, but it was on a 3" display, and the IPS-LCD with ClearBlack filter on the Nokia 701 is 3.5".

We hope to put the phone through its brightness paces soon enough, and share our findings with you. 1000 nits should do wonders for outdoor visibility, but the battery drain might be substantial in that mode as well, so we are curious how Nokia has handled this trade-off.

Looks like a nice phone, however the Wave 3 is soooooo much better than this.
Nokia has just come with phone with 1 ghz processsor, and samsung has already come with the wave 3 with 1.4 ghz.
Nokia needs to come with better hardware, symbian belle is quite ok, but they need better hardware.

Grow up man, bada is great.
I'm not attacking this phone, i actually plan to buy this phone to add to my collection of phones, and to try out symbian belle. Of course i'm going to use the new Wave 3 as my main phone, but just wanted to buy this phone as my 2nd phone.

Have you ever actually used one to criticize Bada with great, yet unreasonable conviction?

If this IPS-Clear Black screen can produce sharp images and deep blacks then good bye AMOLED!!!

Symbian is stable and have good battery and ofcourse Nokia hardware is better. A phone with NFC, 1 GHZ processor, USB OTG, FM Transmitter, HD Video recording @ 30 fps.... Nokia 701 seems good.
