Nokia unwraps 3G threesome

The 6282, 6233 and 6234 pitched at business users

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Nokia today introduced its latest three 3G handsets, pitched at business users.

The 110g Nokia 6233 candybar phone sports a 2mp camera viewed through the handset's 320 x 240 display. It's based on Nokia's Series 40 UI, and provides all the usual messaging and content services you'd expect from a 3G phone. It also has stereo speakers backed by a 3D sound engine. The phone supports hot-swappable MicroSD memory cards.

Nokia claimed the 6233 provides over four hours' talk time using a GSM connection and over three hours on a 3G W-CDMA link. It offers two weeks' standby time.

The 6233 is due to ship in Q2 2006 at €325 before taxes and operator subsidies. In Q1 2006, Nokia will ship the 6234, a Vodafone-centric version on the 6233.

Nokia also unveiled today the 6282, a 3G UMTS slider-phone with a 2.2in 320 x 240 colour display and a 1mp camera. Like the 6233/6234, the 6282 uses MicroSD cards for memory expansion and allows you to remove and add them while the phone's up and running. It too is based on Nokia's Series 40 UI.

All three handsets support Bluetooth connectivity, incorporate an FM radio, and support both MP3 and AAC ringtones.

The 6282 is due to ship Q1 2006. Nokia did not provide pricing information. ®
