The 86g Nokia 6120 runs the Finnish phone giant's S60 user interface on a 2in, 240 x 320, 16m-colour display. There's a two megapixel main camera with a flash an 4x digital zoom, and a front-facing 0.3 megapixel cam for video calls.

The handset's a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE device, so it can connect to networks globally when it's out of range of a 3G link. It has Bluetooth on board too, along with an FM radio and up to 35MB of memory for the owner's stuff - more if you plug in a Micro SD card.

Nokia claimed the 6120's battery has juice for 2.4 hours' 3G usage, 3.1 hours' GSM talk time and up to 230 hours' stand-by operation.

The 6120 will go on sale later this quarter for around €260 ($354/£177) unsubsidised.
