Nokia announces Nokia 6260 slide feature phone, writes S40 history - read the full textThe spanking new Nokia 6260 slide easily steals the spotlight with Wi-Fi, GPS, 320 x 480 pixels display, and a 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics.

However, there is a way to do it now, if one wants to combine their Java apps using a program called Multime. Please Google for it if you're interested.

I might argue with you bro, that as soon as a phone is announced the programmers are already starting to write applications for it(considering screen resolution and OS). It's no exception to this phone. It's a long time I've been longing for an S40 Nokia to have a document veiwer, push e-mail, WiFi, GPS, big camera, 3.5mm, audio/video jack, large screen, etc., and this seems to be a huge step in the right direction. About the S60 candybar you want I think there's plenty of those like N82 and N79 which in my opinion should be upgraded with this screen resolution (320*480 pixels) to suit your needs. I just wish Nokia works on multitasking on S40 like Sony Ericssons that run more than one Java applications at once and old low end Motorolas(eg. V360, L6, L7, etc) that can automatically minimise an application when receiving a call or sms and lets go back to resume it (where you left) if you like. BTW well done Nokia.

If I am not mistaken, this phone will cost as much as an n95 or an n82...may even cost a bit more...

wonder what can this phone do to prevent collision to known legends?

Well, the 6220C has all that except for the aforementioned Wi-Fi, and the accelorometer, although regarding the latter feature, many of the apps have the option of being displayed in landscape or portrait orientation, obviously it just won't be automatic. I doubt the S40 UI is as slick, responsive and usable as the S60 UI, which Nokia has concentrated on refining for many years now....

Nice. But I've 3 comments:
1. Being in Egypt, this phone won't be available because of having GPS
2. Which brings me to suggesting producing another model to be a simpler version of '6260 slide' like 'E63' is to 'E71', i.e. remove GPS, plastic body, reduce camera resolution to 3.2 (or even 2) but keep autofocus and flash, HSPDA to UMTS
3. Increase contacts limit from 1000 (according to to 2000
4. A bar form is nicer (similar in design to that of 'E51' or 'E71'
5. (Just a thought) Won't reducing the color depth from 16M to 256K will save power and increase talk/standby times?
