Nokia 3230 Mobile Phone


Nokia's 3230 doesn't know if it wants to be a business smartphone or a entertainment device. Benny Har-Even tries to work it out.

Nokia 3230


The 3230 continues Nokia's run of style-plus-substance phones, offering a 1.2-megapixel camera, video editing and a positively lush-looking screen.

Triband capable ; Flamboyant design with flashing LEDs and rubberised grip ; Wave messaging' supported with optional Xpress-On cover

Small screen ; Lacks Bluetooth and infrared

While the 3230 does disappoint in some areas, such as sound quality, an awkward keypad, and that mysterious pre-ring beep, it is nevertheless a good choice for those in search of a lot of features without the heart-stopping price of a fuly-fledged PDA...

Review: Nokia 3230


Our man Jin in Malaysia takes Nokia's latest Series 60 device in the 3000 model range, the 3230, out for a spin. The 3230 has the looks and guts to get the job done - and can do so without causing your wallet to implode. Read our hands-on review.

Solid, affordable, good camera and Bluetooth, FM radio
