Nokia 6230i review


Mobile Burn has a review of the 6230i, Nokia's semi-recently updated version of the much-loved 6230 which keeps the Bluetooth and an MMC memory card slot but then slightly improves almost everything else: upping the camera to 1.3 megapixels...

Nokia 6230


Clark Kent could relate to the Nokia 6230. Behind its decidedly plain, mild-mannered exterior lies the heart of a super-phone: an MP3-playing, Bluetooth-networking powerhouse that's your best bet for connecting to Cingular's EDGE network. And this...

Best phone to use as an EDGE modem. Good Bluetooth implementation. Memory card slot, MP3 capabilities, and radio tuner add up to many entertainment options

Tiny (1.8-inch), dim screen. Wobbly navigation button

The Nokia 6230's plain-Jane exterior hides a wealth of features, including the best EDGE modem available in a handset.

The Nokia 6230 has all the attributes of old-school Nokia cell phones (reliable, straight forward menus and solid call quality) with all the hot features (MP3 player, video recorder, camera, Bluetooth, expandable memory) in demand today. While this...

Nokia 6230 (Tri-band)


Moving away from the outdated 12-bit display to a 16-bit display is one move we hope Nokia will maintain for their higher end models to keep pace with market trend and consumers' desire for greater visual and multimedia experience. Built upon the same...

Review: Nokia 6230i


Nokia gave their popular 6230 handset a bit of an overhaul this year, putting out the new 6230i that has a larger, higher resolution display as well as a 1.3 megapixel camera and additional on-board memory.

Nokia 6230i


The Nokia 6230i should be available in the second quarter of 2005 for an unsubsidised price of around €350/£240/$430. We strongly suspect that this handset will sellin truly massive numbers when it hits the retail channel.

Review: Nokia 6230


It seems that the world has been waiting for this phone forever. I had a chance to review one of these little wonders for a week. With Bluetooth, a camera, and a MP3 player with a MMC card slot, it sure has a lot going for it.

Nokia 6230 review


Nokia spared no expense with the 6230's laundry list of features, but it dropped the ball with its dull design and shoddy keypad.

Nokia 6230i Review


The Nokia 6230i has been gaining in popularity recently, and for good reason. The Nokia 6230i improves on hot model by adding a 1.3 mp camera, push-to-talk, and a better display.

The push to talk technology is handy feature to have. It allows you to connect to others via GPRS, just like a walkie talkie. A few network operators worldwide support the push to talk technology, so check around your area

Value for money: The Nokia 6230 is very good value for money. An all-purpose phone that attracts anyone who is looking for a good mid-category phone.

Product Specifications

Flexible, efficient, and powerful: the Nokia 6230i phone shares the same classic design as the popular Nokia 6230, but with revved up features inside. The camera resolution was upgraded up to 1.3 megapixels so you can show off your images in print. There's now 32 MB of internal memory, which is easily expandable with removable MMC cards (up to 512 MB). Use the phone as a storage device for photos, music and video files - or even documents and presentations. When you need to get files from one device to another, the Nokia 6230i phone gives you true versatility with Bluetooth technology, infrared, Pop-Port, USB (supporting plug-and-play), and GPRS/EDGE networks.
