some guy called messus posted this on a symbian site:
"I have e-mailed Nokia (Norway) and asked them specifically about which of these units (6670, 6260, 6630 and 3230) have 44Khz Stereo playback of MP3. (I did NOT ask about the FM-radio)
They replied that the 6630 and 3230 have stereo mp3-playback. :icon14:
Simultaniously they add at the end of the mail, that their answer is based on the information I gave them (my question), and that it is only general information, and that they can not promise or guarantee anything, and that the answer I have got is not legally binding for Nokia in anyway.
:con? :o :con?
So, hehe, I personally do believe that the 3230 is supporting MP3 playback in stereo, but I guess we will have to wait and see.
Maybe more of you could e-mail them. :rolleyes:"
yeah i agree Alfredo the stereo thing isn't putting me off the nokia 3230. i'm sure lots of people will still be happy with it. i listened to music on phones that weren't stereo mp3 playback and they were still loud. not a big deal to me.
Why is it that everybody seams so "hung up" on this "stereo" thing...It is a telephone for Christ sakes....if we give such importance to the "stereo" why don't we just listen to it at home in the "home theatre?
i'm going to give nokia 3230 a go anyway it looks cool and its features are cool especially fm radio, symbian and the 1.3mega pixel camera
its not exactly a web address its my friend who sells mobiles for cheap and i get him the money and he then gives me the mobiles to give to the people who paid for them.
It might be aimed at the youth but without stereo mp3 playback its nothing.I have waited for this phone a month and im disappointed to hear that its not stereo.I'm gettin the 6630 because its mp3 playback is stereo and its processor is 2 times faster only the lack of FM radio is the 6630s bad point.(THATS MY OPINION)
also 3230 is more aimed at the youth market i'll hopefully be gettin a 3230 soon
6630 is more for business use and faster networks with 3g and a bigger lense for clearer and better pictures but 3230 still has sharp pictures as i seen on nokias site
I think 6630 has mp3 stereo playback but 3230 doesn't(not sure about 3230)
everyone on all forums asking same questions but if your on this site you have a computer & internet connection so go to there websites to find out 99% of your questions.
Yes i really agree that about nokia, and i think everybody does. The problem is, whether to buy or not to buy from them
If you read the whole forum thread,the tester gave a very good reason why this phone is stereo.
For the benefit of everyone reading I will write it here.There will never be a perfect phone,so that Nokia can keep milking you guys of money.
Every phone they come out with will have a certain BIG flaw.And I'm sure everyone will agree mono sound is a big flaw.That way,they can keep coming out with new phones.
so can i be sure that the info given is true?Can we be sure that the 3230 is not stereo is there a possibility that they are wrong because if not there is no need to buy this phone,
the phone uses dual voltage rs mmc and its dual mono, not stereo. source: http://forums.hardwarezone.com/showthread.php?t=912938
Everyone's afraid of telling you whether it has stereo...Because no one really knows.Stereo is a BIG thing,so if it turns out Nokia screwed up again and this is Mono,they don't want you sucide bombing their house >_>
For the last time i want to ask if it has a stereo mp3 player an stereo FM radio and also what is the difference between this phones processor and 6630.
