Nokia 6230i review: On the top, again

 

Usually small innovations are hidden behind the small „i“, added to the old models' names. Those at Nokia 6230i are no big either. Nevertheless, they are sufficient to make Nokia 6230i one of the best mobile phones nowadays.

Nokia 6230i is a classical construction telephone of an unobtrusive design. It will be available in a light and a dark version, but more colors will also be possible to get, thanks to the removable covers. We should not expect vivid colors though, for...

Nokia 6230i

 

The Nokia 6230i should be available in the second quarter of 2005 for an unsubsidised price of around €350/£240/$430. We strongly suspect that this handset will sellin truly massive numbers when it hits the retail channel.

Nokia 6230i Review

 

The Nokia 6230i has been gaining in popularity recently, and for good reason. The Nokia 6230i improves on hot model by adding a 1.3 mp camera, push-to-talk, and a better display.

The push to talk technology is handy feature to have. It allows you to connect to others via GPRS, just like a walkie talkie. A few network operators worldwide support the push to talk technology, so check around your area
