Nokia 6151 – the budget 3G mobile phone

Mobile phones

Nokia has introduced the 6151 –  a mobile phone that makes 3G affordable to the mass market. The company reckons it well sell for around £164 sim-free when it becomes available to retailers later this year.

One thing the 6151 can’t do is video calling – there’s no front-mounted camera on the phone. But apart from that, it pretty much covers everything else adequately. Features include a rear-mounted 1.3MP camera with 4x digital zoom and video capture ability, music and video playback, an FM radio with Nokia’s Visual Radio technology, Bluetooth ships as standard and push-to-talk for networks that support it.

There’s 30MB of internal memory, which can be boosted by MicroSD card, while the battery provides 4.5 hours of GSM talk time, 3.5 hours of 3G connectivity and up to 10 days in standby. Expect it in the third quarter of this year in a choice of black, pearl white, orange, light blue and lime green for your £164 (or less with a contract).
