Nokia is to launch two new mobile phones — one is aimed at digital imaging with a built-in camera and the ability to capture and play video recordings, while the other targets style-conscious gamers with a large, colour screen and a gaming-geared keypad.
The Nokia 6600 is a tri-band GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) phone boasting secure email access, a browser, personal information management applications and an integrated video graphics array camera for video recording and still imaging.
In addition to sending and receiving images and video clips, and being able to stream video, users can create multimedia messages with images, sounds and text messages sent in a predetermined order, Nokia claimed.
The 6600 — weighing 122 grams with a talk-time of four hours and standby of up to 10 days – is due out in the fourth-quarter of 2003.
The 3100 has a real gamer-focus, offering a 128 x 128 high-resolution colour screen, preloaded Java game titles such as Snake EX2, and a four-way rocker on the keypad.
