First it announces a pay as you go service (3Pay), now 3 – the UK’s 3G operator – has unveiled a new phone line-up with (of course) three new models. All offer person-to-person video calling and video downloading/streaming.
Setting you back up to £199.99 with a contract, the NEC 616 is a replacement for the 606. It’s a clamshell design with all the facilities of its predecessor plus Bluetooth and GPS. An update of the Motorola A920, the £199 A925 incorporates the Symbian operating platform and a slightly more attractive design than the A920.
Aimed at the pay as you go market, the NEC e313 is a candy bar style handset with far fewer facilities than previous 3 phones. It is expected to retail for £99.
