Slide Your Way to a Beautiful Mobile

Mobile manufacturer Nokia have this week announced yet another mobile phone to add to their ‘Beautiful to Use’ range, we have already had the specifications for the Nokia 6600 Fold or flip, and the Nokia 3600 Slide.

This time it is the turn of the Nokia 6600 Slide – this mobile phone shares the model number with the Nokia 6600 Fold, just as Nokia did with their 6500 Slide and Classic mobiles. The Nokia 6600 Slide actually has very similar features and specifications to the Nokia 6500 Slide. But it does look like a more sleek, rounded version of the 6500 Slide – the styling of it actually looks more like one of the Samsung slide phones.

The Nokia 6600 Slide has a 3.2 megapixel camera, is 3G and can cope with video calls, has an internet browser and email client and has the usual MP3 player, FM radio, microSD card memory expansion and Bluetooth. The Slide has the same accelerometer as the Fold version – which allows you to simply tap the screen in order the light up the display and more helpfully silence a call or alarm with the same double tap to the screen.

The Slide also comes with Google Maps included, although GPS is not installed and it looks like it will need to be bought as an accessory.

It appears that the Nokia 6600 Slide is only going to be available in Black, and should be gracing the mobile phone stores in autumn 2008. So if a decent sized stylish mobile with good features is your thing – keep an eye out for it!

The Nokia 6700 Slide Appeals to Fans of Classic Mobile Technology

The latest addition to the Nokia slide range is the 6700. This attractive handset is finished in silver and features some impressive specifications. These include internet access, 5 MP digital camera and a versatile media player.

To store files such as video clips and music tracks, 45 MB of internal memory is provided. A micro SD slot is also provided for this purpose. It comes with a pre-installed 2 GB memory card but this can be replaces with a card of up to 16 GB so a large amount of files and data can be stored. The internal phonebook can store a vast number of entries and has the popular photocall feature.

The Nokia 6700 Slide measures 95.2×46.1×15.9mm and weighs just 110 grams. For a slider phone, this is considered light weight so it is a comfortable phone to hold and use. Available in silver, as well as a variety of other colour variants, the 6700 Slide is an aesthetically pleasing handset.

Several different formats of music and video files are supported by the internal media player. As well as this, a stereo FM radio player and selection of games are provided to keep users entertained. A voice memo recorder and Nokia Maps add to the everyday versatility of the handset.

As mentioned, a digital camera boasting 5 megapixels is included (2592×1944 pixel resolution). This allows high quality still images to be taken, and also doubles up as an effective video camera, which shoots in QCIF quality at a frame rate of 15 per second. The task of taking great images is somewhat simplified thanks to the inclusion of features such as autofocus and LED flash.

Connection to cellular networks and the internet is achieved through a variety of means. To connect to cellular networks, GPRS and EDGE (both class 32 versions) are utilised. Internet connection relies on 3G coverage, where HSDPA is available at speeds of up to 10.2Mbps alongside HSUPA at 2 Mbps.
Bluetooth and USB provide the means to connect the handset to other devices such as compatible phones and computers.

The TFT screen measures 2.2 inches and displays on screen content to a high quality thanks to a pixel layout of 240×320 displaying up to 16M colours. The fascia is finished in silver, with the slide out keyboard finished in a tasteful black colour scheme.

Vibration, MP3 and downloadable polyphonic ringtones are the alert types available to alert to incoming messages and calls. Handsfree communication is achieved by the included audio jack and speakerphone.

The Nokia 6700 Slide proves that a modern handset does not need a touch screen or Wi-Fi to be an appealing and effective handset.
