Nokia announced 'beautiful to use' phones
Nokia 6600 fold is the first clamshell with "recycled" model number, therefore the word "fold" (others are "slide" and "classic"). Similar to the Nokia 8800 Arte, a double tap on the front surface will bring up the watch, as well as other service information, on the external OLED display. A double tap snoozes alerts and silences or rejects incoming phone calls. As the 6126/6131 device, this phone also has supporting mechanism which allows you to open the shell with a push of a button. The 2.13" internal display is also OLED , so we can expect it to be brighter than its TFT rivals. 6600 fold will be available for 275 EUR / $430 before taxes, in either mysterious black or sophisticated purple color.
Nokia 6600 slide has the same design language but in a slider form-factor. As the fold, it has sensor which reacts to tapping, to indicate time, snooze an alarm and silence or reject an incoming call. Although slightly cheaper (250 EUR / $390) than the clamshell , it has bigger display (2.2"), and 3.2-megapixel camera instead of 2-megapixel one. The rest of the features are identical, and although it has the same weight, it has steel covers and aluminium center key.
The 3600 slide is slightly larger, stripped down version of 6600 slide, but is the least expensive of the three, at 175 EUR / $275. It also has 3.2-megapixel camera but its display is 2-inch and it lacks 3G and a sensor. It will be available in either charcoal or wine color.

This is a pretty decent line up for Nokia. However, being that they have the least attrative brand named phones they still dont get much respect. Nokia has a lot of work to do if they want to complete with Samsung, LG, HTC etc...

I beg to differ. I for one, like what I see as conservatively styled phones. Nokia does that pretty well I think. I don't want something like a motorola or HTC or LG. Their styling doesn't do it for me. Granted, some of Nokia's designs aren't that great. But as a whole, no other brand offers much of anything decent besides Nokia in my opinion.
