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...

Fingerprint magnet, hard to clean ; Rigid battery cover latch ; Memory card slot under the battery, no hot-swap ; No camera shutter key ; Below par camera quality ; Display easily gets scratched ; No smart dialing ; No multi-tasking ; No office...

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...

Steep price for the features offered ; Unimpressive camera performance ; Non hot-swappable memory card ; Fingerprint-magnet front ; The large magnetic contacts spoil the internal looks ; No HSDPA ; No smart dialing ; No multi-tasking ; No office...

Bold color scheme and intriguing one-touch flip, Nokia 6600 fold sure knows how to make a good first impression. The gradated mirror front looks and feels extra smooth and the exotic OLED display adds another touch of exclusivity. And it definitely...

Sprint PPC-6600

 

The PPC-6600 is the most powerful handheld for Sprint subscribers. But it falls short of its Cingular, T-Mobile, and Verizon brethren by not offering a high-speed network, and the camera fails to impress.

Lots of memory. Good keyboard. Convenient command buttons.

Large and heavy. No high-speed network. Poor camera.

Nokia 6600 (T-Mobile) review: Nokia 6600 (T-Mobile)

 

Review summary

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.
