Nokia rolls out 3 classic models
Espoo, May 6, 2008
Nokia on Tuesday unveiled a trio of mobile devices that balance stunning and sophisticated looks with the latest in mobile functionality.
All three devices, the Nokia 6600 fold, the Nokia 6600 slide and the Nokia 3600 slide present a smooth, minimalist design and an appealing array of easy-to-use features, said a statement.
The devices, in the range of 175 euros to 275euros ($270 to $425) before taxes and subsidies, are expected to start shipping during the third quarter of this year.
'There is a strong consumer demand for mobile handsets that blend elegant looks with modern features,' said Mikkel Drucker, director, Connect Devices.
'Each of the three devices introduced today offers a slightly different take on a core design language. We believe they are both beautiful to use and beautiful to behold - and offer a range of choice,' he noted.
Nokia 6600 fold
With one touch of a button, the elegant Nokia 6600 fold smoothly opens to reveal a stunningly bright 2.13'' Oled screen displaying up to 16 million colors.
With its seamless design, the signature 'smooth back' of the Nokia 6600 fold creates a comfortable contour when open, and remains subtle and compact when closed.
The high-gloss surface of the Nokia 6600 fold comes to life when tapped twice to 'wake up' the hidden outer display that reveals time, incoming messages, missed calls and more. A double tap on the Nokia 6600 fold also snoozes alerts and silences or rejects incoming phone calls.
'With a set of contemporary mobile features that belie its compact size, the Nokia 6600 fold is proof positive that beauty can be far more than skin deep,' he quipped.
3G technology allows for fast and easy sharing of pictures and videos snapped with the integrated 2 megapixel camera with double LED flash or swift access to Internet services such as Yahoo! Go or Flickr.
The Nokia 6600 fold easily fits into a pocket or a handbag and has an estimated retail price of $425 excluding taxes and subsidies.
Nokia 6600 slide
Being one of Nokia's smallest sliders to date, the Nokia 6600 slide stays true to its name as it smoothly glides open in the hand.
The appearance of the Nokia 6600 slide with its glossy, high-quality steel covers and aluminium center key constitute both understated elegance as well as visual simplicity.
Its well-balanced feature set is created to be exciting and intuitive. Tapping the Nokia 6600 slide twice conveniently indicates time, snoozes, alerts and silences or rejects incoming phone calls.
The 3.2 megapixel camera takes high quality pictures and videos that can be shared with others via Internet services or multimedia message - directly from the photo menu.
The large 2.2' QVGA display with 16 million colors also makes it easy to find your way around town, thanks to the integrated Nokia Maps application which can be enhanced with an optional Nokia Bluetooth GPS Module LD-4W and separate navigation license.
The slim, lightweight Nokia Bluetooth GPS Module LD-4W features an innovative design that takes Bluetooth navigation beyond the car and into the hands of urban trekkers and leisure travelers.
The Nokia 6600 slide has an estimated retail price of $387 excluding taxes and subsidies.
Nokia 3600 slide
The Nokia 3600 slide aims to win hearts with a blend of tasteful colors, materials and tactile finishes, and minds with a full range of the latest features.
Soft ceramic paint and metal combined with high gloss surfaces and gradated colors to make the Nokia 3600 slide beautiful to both touch and see.
The Nokia 3600 slide is equally beautiful to hear as it is the first Nokia product to feature background noise cancellation. With a built-in music player the Nokia 3600 slide offers up to 3000 favorite songs on an optional 4 microSD card.
