A little more about the four new mobile phones launched at Nokia Capital Market Days.
First and foremost is the Nokia 6300, a mid-range model that represents an evolution of the modern monoblock design. Less than 13.1mm thin, the slim Nokia 6300 has a stainless steel frame that adds both design interest and strength to this model. Apart from its organic curves and appealing design, the Nokia 6300 offers a robust range of easy-to-use features. The estimated retail price of the Nokia 6300 is €250 before subsidies or taxes.
Second on the list is the Nokia 6290 Smartphone, which blends the collective power of S60 3rd Edition and 3G in an easy-to-use, attractively designed package. It supports a number of practical new features, multiple alarms and handy Quick Cover access keys which enable instant access to a wide range of the device’s useful features, including an interactive world travel application. The estimated retail price of the Nokia 6290 is €325 before subsidies or taxes.
Next is the Nokia 6086 Cameraphone through which its users can stay in touch – in any environment.
