Mobile phones

Nokia has introduced two new mid-range camera phones at the 3GSM in Barcelona in the form of the Nokia 6131 and Nokia 6070.

The stylish quadband Nokia 6131 (pictured) has a slim folding design and features high-resolution true color QVGA display that supports 16 million colors and an outer screen with 262k colors. As well as all the features you’d expect from Nokia, the Nokia 6131 also packs in a digital music player and FM stereo radio supporting Visual Radio, plus an 1.3MP camera with 8x digital zoom.

The triband Nokia 6070 is more basic and traditional in design, but still has a good range of functions, including SMS, MMS, Nokia Xpress audio messaging, email and instant messaging. Voice features include push to talk, a voice recorder and an integrated handsfree speaker. It’s compatible with EDGE data communication and also features a stereo FM radio.

Both phones are expected to be available from the second quarter of 2004. The 6131 will retail for around 275 EUR (£188), with the 6070 selling for around 135 EUR (£92).
