Nokia's new mobile phones

Nokia unveiled three new mobile phones, further strengthening its portfolio of mid-range feature rich, voice-centric handsets. The highlight of this announcement is the Nokia 6230i camera phone, which adds a megapixel camera and push to talk functionality to the highly popular Nokia 6230. The Nokia 6230i and the Nokia 6021 are expected to start shipping in the second quarter and the Nokia 6030 in the third quarter of 2005.

"Nokia remains dedicated to offering consumers a variety of products to choose from, based on their individual needs and preferences," explains Aage Snorgaard, Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia. "The Nokia 6230i is the successor to one of the most popular camera phones Nokia has brought to the marketplace. With the Nokia 6230i, we are offering a broader feature set in the same classic design. We made a great phone even better."

The high-resolution screen (208 x 208 pixels) of the Nokia 6230i is an ideal backdrop for rich multimedia content. It displays colorful pictures taken by the built-in 1.3 megapixel camera with a 3 x digital zoom. The video recorder of the Nokia 6230i allows users to record videos of up to one hour, based on the storage of the MMC card included in the sales package.

For music lovers, the Nokia 6230i has a built-in stereo music player which supports several digital music formats, such as MP3, M4A and AAC. Now, favorite tunes from a CD library can easily be converted via PC software and loaded directly onto the Nokia 6230i. An FM radio with Visual Radio nicely rounds out the audio features of the Nokia 6230i.

Push to talk technology complements the feature set of the Nokia 6230i camera phone. It allows users to connect to others -- be it a group or an individual -- over GPRS, similar to using a walkie-talkie. Several operators worldwide have introduced push to talk services for consumers. The triband Nokia 6230i camera phone will be available at an estimated retail price, excluding taxes and subsidies, of 350 EUR.

The Nokia 6021
The new Nokia 6021 phone is equipped with a range of contemporary technologies for personal and business demands. An affordable business-oriented phone, the Nokia 6021 enhances connectivity and synchronization with Bluetooth wireless technology.

With a subtle and practical design, the Nokia 6021 phone fits all daily occasions. Consumers will enjoy the many added features of the Nokia 6021, including push to talk technology, and voice activated dialing. The tri-band Nokia 6021 will be available at an estimated retail price, excluding taxes and subsidies, of 200 EUR.

Both, the Nokia 6021 and the Nokia 6230i camera phone easily connect to an office PC for convenient contact and calendar synchronization. Additionally, both models can take advantage of the broad range of available Nokia enhancements such as headsets and car kits via Bluetooth wireless technology.

The Nokia 6030
The Nokia 6030 phone offers everything consumers need to stay in touch -- at a very desirable price. In a classic design, the Nokia 6030 fulfils consumers' main communications needs. It will be available for an estimated retail price, excluding taxes and subsidies, of 150 EUR.

The reliable Nokia 6030 has easy messaging functionality and very good ergonomics. The color screen displays incoming multimedia messages with images from friends or family. With alarm and calendar functions, the Nokia 6030 phone ensures important dates are not forgotten. The built-in FM radio helps to fill the downtime, while personalized wallpapers and ring tones give each phone an individual touch.
