Nokia 6500 classic and Nokia 6500 slide

Tags: Nokia

Today Nokia expands its mid-range portfolio by offering two distinct handset with accent on fine craftsmanship and 3G connectivity. The Nokia 6500 classic and Nokia 6500 slide are unique with their simplistic, yet refined metallic design and rich features. Despite being gathered under a common 6500-series model line the two handsets are pretty different when it comes to specifications and form factor.

The Nokia 6500 classic features a seamless body case made from anodized aluminum and measures only 9.5 mm in thickness. With a classic bar form factor, it is based on the S40 user interface and features dual band 3G support (WCDMA 850/2100) and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support.

Focusing mainly on data transfers and streaming content instead on video calls, the Nokia 6500 classic doesn't feature a video calls camera and its main photographic gear is a 2 megapixel camera with a dual LED flash. It also offers a 2" 16M color TFT display with QVGA resolution and 1GB of internal memory. If that is not enough, unfortunately, the handset doesn't have a memory card slot.

The Nokia 6500 is also equipped with a microUSB port to meet all cable connectivity needs such as charging, listening to music and transferring data.

The Nokia 6500 classic will be offered in black or bronze and is expected to become commercially available in Q3 2007 at an estimated retail price of 320EUR.

The Nokia 6500 slide comes in the slider form factor (obviously!) and is jam-packed with features. It is again based on the S40 user interface and features dual band 3G support (WCDMA 850/2100) and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support. This photo-centric handset has a video calls camera and is the first Nokia feature phone to be equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera. The camera itself has Carl Zeiss optics, auto focus and a dual LED flash plus video recording in VGA resolution (15fps).

The Nokia 6500 slide also boasts a 2.2" 16M color TFT display with a QVGA resolution and connectivity wise is equipped with a microUSB slot, Bluetooth, and a TV-out jack. The TV-out jack is not only for browsing your pictures on a large screen but also can be used for exciting features such as TV video calls and TV video conference calls. The device is further equipped with a FM radio with RDS and a microSD memory slot with support of up to 4GB memory cards.

When it comes to design, the Nokia 6500 slide doesn't fail to impress, too. The body has a brushed stainless steel finish plus some clear hard coating which should prevent scratches and fingerprints.

The Nokia 6500 slide is due to hit the markets in Q3 2007 at an estimated retail price of 370EUR.

Front camera in Nok. 6500 slide only activates for video calls, it's not for photography.
