The phone comes preloaded with Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Shazam and YouTube to cater to your entertainment needs. On a more serious level, there’s Microsoft Office Communicator, Quick Office, Adobe PDF reader and Vlingo.

On the back, there’s a 5 megapixel camera with digital zoom. The latest version of the camera software means you can now shoot 720p video at 30fps. And on-board photo and video editing software means that you can update your social networks with pictures and movies easily while you’re on the move.

The Nokia 603 is also the seventh Nokia phone to offer NFC (near-field communications). This technology allows easy sharing of pictures, videos and contact details; the use of a location-based services and simple, one-tap pairing with compatible accessories.
