The Nokia 6233 builds on the formula that made the Nokia 6230i so popular - a classically-designed, feature-rich device. As 3G gains even greater mass-market attraction

The technology is better, and the music and pictures are much richer than they ever were. Once in a while, going back to the basics is a refreshing change for the biggest handset maker in the world and they should be applauded for it.
