It has been a busy week for Nokia who launched seven new phones, four of which are heading for these shores.
The big story is the 6280 which the company is billing as its most sophisticated 3G handset to date. Aimed at gadget lovers the high-end mobi boasts video calling facilities (still unusual for a Nokia phone), a two mega pixel still camera, Bluetooth and MP3/AAC music playback. The phone is a sliding style and runs using the Series 40 interface. It also features a removable mini-SD card and a radio.
The 6270 is a pretty similar handset but is GPRS rather than 3G. It has a two mega pixel camera, music playback and stereo speakers. It also has the same 320 x 240 pixel screen, and built-in FM radio as the 6280 but is a tad smaller and lighter.
Nokia also launched a basic slider in the 6111 which nevertheless boasts a one mega pixel camera and a 128 x 160 screen. Completing the range is Nokia’s take on the noddy phone as pioneered by Vodafone/Sagem/LG etc. The 6060 is a very basic clamshell with a 65k colour screen
All the phones will be on sale in late 2005.
