Of all of the mobile phone entities on the market today, the Nokia Corporation is one of the foremost device manufacturers. With a long history of telecommunication research and development, their product line has evolved into multiple series of phones, the 1-series, 2-series, 3-series, 5-series, 6-series, 7-series, 8-series, 9-series, E-series, and N-series. This wide selection may seem intimidating, and in fact, Nokia does offer close 100 devices, but the 6-series should be at the front of everyone’s mind.
The 6-series by Nokia is otherwise known as the Classic Business Series and can be described as a mid-to-high range selection. This series offers many features, high-speed technologies, and network compatibility. Some examples of phones in this series are the 6300 and the upcoming 6600 slide.
The Nokia 6300 was released in 2006, but carries an impressive capability that is very much alive today. For starters, the phone has a candy bar form factor, with tri-band GSM supporting the 850, 1800, and 1900 frequencies. The screen resolution is 240 x 320 (QVGA) with 24-bit color. For the OS, this mobile operates on the series 40 platform, 3rd edition, service pack 2. Concerning battery life, this phone is supported by a 860 mAh lithium ion battery, with a 4.5 hour talk time and standby time of 348 hours/14.5 days. The Bluetooth support is great, 2.0 + EDR and A2DP stereo capabilities.
As for speed, this phone is a 2G model with EDGE support. To take advantage of this capability, the phone uses WAP 2.0 with XHTML and HTML. For email, this phone’s client can use IMAP, SMTP, and POP to retrieve mail. Lastly, this phone has outstanding text messaging, with MMS functionality.
Not to be sold short on multimedia, the 6300 can play MP4, AAC, AAC+, MP4, MP3, WAV, and WMA. The phone will play 3GPP streaming video, and will even receive FM radio. For more multimedia, this phone has a 2.0 megapixel camera, and can capture video at 15 fps. To store all of this data, the phone has a microSD/TransFlash slot with a maximum size of 2 GB. Smaller cards are included with the phone, at the discretion of the provider.
Of all this wonderful functionality, the 6300 also backs itself up with J2ME support. J2ME is a Java implementation that allows users to install third-party applications on their phones. Google has a gmail application built on J2ME, for example, and various developers have built games and miscellaneous applications that can be installed.
Nokia 6600 Slide
The Nokia 6600 slide is a model to be released in Q3 2008, and is designed to followup the 6500 slide. Needless to say, this phone is a slider model, but has features that are significantly improved from the 6300 model. The main advantages of this phone are the 3G networking over UMTS, which allows for faster data transfer. The battery has been bumped up to 1000 mAh, but the overall operating times have remained the same due to the increased power consumption from the 3G. Lastly, this phone has an increased camera resolution, now at 3.2 megapixels, with auto focus and double flash.[ad_2]
