Nokia unveils miniature stocking filler
Just in time for the festivities, Nokia packs a colour display, MMS and JavaTM technology into the smallest Nokia phone yet.
Nokia has announced the Middle East launch of the Nokia 6100 phone, the latest addition to its ‘classic’ phone category. Designed for mobile professionals, the Nokia 6100 phone has a slim, streamlined shape with a wide complement of features, including a high-quality colour display, Java technology and support for multimedia messaging (MMS).
The tri-band mobile phone will function around the globe wherever GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 networks are available. It is expected to start shipping in the Middle East before the end of 2002.
“The 6100 is an excellent example of how advances in technology have made it possible to shrink the form factor of mobile phones without reducing functionality,” says Eddie Maalouf, marketing manager, Nokia Middle East.
“Middle East phone owners are extremely particular in the type of mobile that they will purchase. We expect that the 6100, with its classic look and tri-band functionality will prove successful across the region.”
The ergonomic keypad ensures easy text input while the large high-quality colour display helps straddle the fence between size and usability. Via its Pop-PortTM interface, the Nokia 6100 phone supports the Nokia Camera Headset, also launched today, which enables users to take digital images to send as MMS messages. This means that the Nokia 6100 phone can send, receive and forward multimedia messages with text and image content to other compatible MMS-enabled phones.
“Even though the Nokia 6100 is the smallest Nokia phone we have launched so far, it offers uncompromising performance and usability. The impressive range of features ensures that we can offer mobile professionals a well designed tool to manage both work and private life,“ said Kai Öistämö, Senior Vice President, Nokia Mobile Phones.
The Nokia 6100 phone has a volume of 60 cc, weighs 76 grams and has a talk time of up to 6 hours and a standby time of up to 320 hours.
