Nokia’s announcement today of four new mobile phones includes the Nokia 6086.
It’s a UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access) handset designed to allow its users to stay in touch whatever their environment. It’s a quad-based GSM and UMA camera phone with a classic design, large keypad and intuitive user interface. Dimensions are 92 mm x 46 mm x 23 mm (L x W x T), and weighing 84 grams.
It features a camcorder and video player, Bluetooth synchronisation, VGA camera with 4x digital zoom, 6MB user memory expandable via microSD card, and up to 5 hours of talk time and 10 days of standby.
Nokia say that the UMA technology will benefit mobile operators, allowing them to deliver voice and data services to their subscriber base over WLAN, decreasing their costs related to network deployment and increasing mobile service availability.
Apparently Orange will be one of the first to offer the 6086 and have added it to their Unik offer, launched back in September.
“Our Unik offer combines the best of fixed and mobile within a single handset, allowing customers to use one phone to meet all their needs – with one number, one address book, one voice mail and one bill,” says Yves Maitre, Vice President, Devices, Orange. “Already customers can choose from the largest range of UMA phones. The addition of the Nokia 6086 strengthens our Unik offer and builds on the strong tradition we have of working with Nokia to combine cutting edge technology with exceptional ease of use.”
Estimated price €200, and available from early 2007.
