Nokia 6260 Smartphone

The Nokia 6260 smartphone, with a rich feature set tailored towards mobile professionals, has started shipping in select markets. The tri-band (EGSM 900, GSM 1800/1900) Nokia 6260 smartphone is based on the Series 60 Platform and Symbian OS, offering push to talk functionality, email, a document and presentation viewer, a VPN client, Bluetooth connectivity and a VGA camera in an innovative fold design. The suggested retail price excluding taxes will be around EUR400.

The Nokia 6260 smartphone has a presentation and document viewer that allows users to view compatible email attachments directly on their phone. It also features swappable multimedia memory cards onto which email attachments, images, video clips and texts can be saved. Protected access to corporate data is easy using the integrated VPN client. Additionally, data synchronization enables local or remote updates of calendar, contacts and to-do lists.

With push to talk functionality, the Nokia 6260 consumers can have quick discussions with colleagues at the touch of a single button. Think of it like a "walkie-talkie" over the GPRS network and use it to stay in touch with a whole group or one person.

With its display on a 270-degree hinge, the Nokia 6260 smartphone is operational in 4 different modes, each adapted for a different use. Open it to talk, fold it with the display to face out to browse the web or access applications, twist the display to activate the camera, or close it flat to slip into your briefcase. The Nokia 6260 smartphone also works with the Nokia Wireless Keyboard, which makes personal organization and data entry quick and convenient via Bluetooth wireless technology. Like the Nokia 6260 smartphone, the Nokia Wireless Keyboard features a folding design for quick use and storage.
