Nokia 6600i slide review: I slide, you slide

Nokia 6600 slide review: Beautiful to use

 

Tiny, yet remarkably solid, like a pebble tumbled smooth by the waves, there's something about Nokia 6600 slide that's really hard to resist. By the way, minimalist, extra smooth and exclusive stand equally well for any...

Of the same build and pricing, both the yesterday's 6600 flip and the today's 6600 fold are a treat to look at and handle. The differences in gear are minor, boiling down to a fair try to fine-tune the supply. The OLED screen and electromagnetic...

Nokia 6600 fold review: Flip and the city

 

Smoking hot body, brilliant looks, user-friendly interface and almost no value for money, but still packing quite a punch – Nokia 6600 fold is exactly the kind of meal to order from an unpriced menu. The OLED screen, the cool magnetic flip and the...

Nokia 6600 (T-Mobile)

 

Integrated camera; video recorder; Bluetooth and IR port; spacious display; e-mail access; speakerphone; included 32MB MMC media; world phone.

Slightly bulkier than other phones in its class; OS occasionally sluggish; low battery life; ill-placed MMC media slot.

The Nokia 6600 isn't the sexiest or the smallest cell phone we've seen, but it packs plenty of high-end features that will please smart-phone addicts.

Review: Nokia 6600

 

The 6600 has been a hotly anticipated device, all the more so because of the odd keypad design of the prior Series 60 device, the 3650. Lets see if the 6600 has anything else to offer, other than keys.

Product Specifications

Nokia expanded its portfolio of imaging devices with the introduction of the Nokia 6600, a sophisticated imaging device which strikes an ideal balance between advanced business features and a stylish, compact form. Packed with compelling features, this tri-band (GSM 900/1800/1900) phone meets the ongoing demands of the multitasking, mobile workforce with personal information management (PIM) applications, secure email access, seamless file downloads, and access to richer mobile content via the XHTML browser. With the latest features in mobile imaging, the Nokia 6600 has an integrated VGA camera for video recording and still image capture with 2x digital zoom, as well as a large 65,536 color display with an enhanced graphical user-interface. Users can create, send and receive multi-picture multimedia messages with Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) technology, which allows users to compose messages that display text, sound and images in a pre-determined order. The Nokia 6600 also makes it possible to capture, send and receive video clips with audio, as well as receive streaming video content in both RealVideo and 3GPP video streaming formats. A convenient media gallery application makes access to and organization of multimedia content easy. For users requiring reliable data connections, the Nokia 6600 offers both HSCSD and GPRS support in addition to local Bluetooth and infrared connectivity. Integrated TCP/IP technology enhances both the ease and speed of over-the-air file downloads. Enterprise users can access email and other corporate servers through the public Internet with increased over the air security via SSL and the mobile VPN (Virtual Private Network) client, available for corporate customers. For fast access to mobile services and information, the advanced XHTML browser can be activated with a single click. The wallet application makes online payments and the storage of encrypted personal information easy, reliable and convenient. Users can shape their mobile environment by adding applications compatible with either the Symbian 7.0s operating system or applications based on the latest Java technology, MIDP 2.0. Applications can be stored either in the phone's 6MB internal memory or on the 32MB MMC card included in the sales package. The new Nokia phone is based on the Series 60 Platform, the world's leading terminal software for smart phones. Though a powerful business tool, the Nokia 6600 creates a new form of mobile personalization with user-selectable themes. They allow users to renew the look and feel of the user interface from colors to graphics and wallpapers. Polyphonic ring tones and music-like True Tones complement the customizable user interface. Optional enhancements available for the Nokia 6600 include the new Nokia Wireless Clip-on Headset, Nokia Wireless Car Kit, Nokia Image Viewer and Nokia Digital Pen all using Bluetooth technology.
