Nokia this week released a new candy-bar smartphone that packs many features that mobile workers and multimedia lovers may both like.
Mobile professionals will appreciate the phone's Microsoft Office applications, but the T9 input and lack of a QWERTY keyboard may not be appealing to some customers.
It features a 2.2-inch screen with a QVGA display capable of showing 16 million colors. It also has a built-in GPS receiver that can use cellular data for assisted GPS services.
There's a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and auto-focus technology. There's also a Xenon flash, video recording up to 30 frames per second, and a secondary camera for video calls.
Nokia's phone is powered by Symbian 9.3, S60, and it packs 128 MB of user memory. This is expandable up to 8 GB via the microSD slot, and files can be transferred to a computer with the microUSB slot. It also has Bluetooth version 2.0, push-to-talk capability, and built-in hands-free features.
For multimedia, the 6220 classic has a music player capable of multiple codecs, as well as an integrated FM radio. The device also can play MPEG4 videos, and videos from the phone can be played on a television with an optional TV-out cable.
The handset measures 4.3 by 1.9 by 0.6 inches and weighs 3.2 ounces. The cell phone is available now in India for about $464, and Nokia has not announced if it will release the device in other markets.
