Hi, I am planning to buy this on late may.
But I am still confused what Nokia unit to buy,
N81 or 6260 slide? Which is better?
what about LG mobile ??
yesterday i was checking this mobile,,
its really seems liek a game and shape of plastic ???
i dunno why they didnot re-think about the assembly ??
why like that ??
i shift my mind t another mobile which is LG kc910i-00 ...
what do you think about it ,,
about the LG machine ,, i havenot used this LG features and i donot know if its gonna be better than Nokia or not ??
can you reply please?
I bought the phone, at last. However, I was disappointed!!
Features and performance wise, the phone is OK. I would rate it 8 out of 10. Camera for still shots is perfect with Average quality mediocre 15 frame/second QVGA video. Awesome 240*320 Display.
However, The worst thing about it is the build!!! Plastic!!! It has a strange fingerprint-prone cheap looking front. It's all in plastic except for the back cover that is aluminum. Moreover, The assembly is noticeably poor. You can notice a mellimeter gap here and there. Specifically in the Keypad. If it is lit, you can see the light coming from the lower gap between the keypad and the plastic frame it is embedded in!!! Not to mention the annoying plastic ticks sound you get when you use the D-pad or any other key.
A strange thing as well is that you can not rotate the screen in important applications like office products and internet browser!
I don't want to be offensive. However, i am starting to feel that Nokia Chinese products do not go through the thorough QA Process Finnish products go through. A simple comparison between the 6260 and the famous 6300 would give you that feeling.
Fahad, 26 Apr 2009Still S60 is better than s40. i used both, than i fall in love with s60. and i will never buy ... moreHi Fahad,
It depends on your requirements from any mobile set you use. If messaging is no.1 usage, then probably you'll need the features the S40 provide. Otherwise, as I said, the S60 is a Powerful multi-tasking Operating system.
superb mobile with 10.2 hsdpa i can reach 850kBs download speed in 3.5g network
Why there is no review for this phone in GSM Arena yet ??
I hope that GSM Arena will post their review for this phone. I give high expectation on Nokia 6260 Slide for non S60 users. Thanks.

This is the Top Notch S40 Release 6 mobile. The first from nokia to be equipped with this operating system and having wifi. S40 Operating systems have a lot above S60 in general. Much more user friendly and natural rational menus. Of course S60 has multitasking and is usually installed on a much better processor. However, S40 preponderates S60 in the following:
1. The time is only visible on the home screen of S60, this isnít the case with S40 where the time is everywhere.
2. You get a preview of the themes in S40 when scrolling by them, they donít appear in S60 unless you preview them.
3. S40 lets you record your phone calls out of the box, you need third party tools to do this in S60.
4. S40 has this menu view where you donít have to bury to find features. It is similar to the menu system on a Sony PSP.
5. The calender on S40 blows S60 out the water. You can set call reminders, there is more information visible in the month view and it takes fewer clicks to add information.
6. In S40 Profiles are timed, and you don't have to exit the profiles menu to activate the profile like in S60.
7. The standby screen on S60 has a limited number of icons on top and very little calendar information compared to S40 which has no such limit on the number of shortcuts and has a rich calender view.
8. Ability to insert a contact detail in a message in S40. S60 doesn't have that.
9. S40 Log will allow you to view all calls in one log with the option to see Incoming, outgoing and missing separately. S60 has the separate views only.
10. S40 has the ability to let you send a text message to the most recent people youíve already sent a text message to. S60 does not have this.
I just bought the se and I been using the mobile for the last couple of days.All I can say that its a superb mobile.Its picture qualitu is really impressive.Though the sensative navi wheel is really troubling for the first time user.But all I can say is if anyone is looking for a camera phone, he can go for it.Sound quality is good enough.Supports a wide range of music formats.
I bought this phone to slightly upgrade from the 6600 slide.Got it finally...but getting rid of it.Nice phone over all but..the navi key is very sensitive and the side keys (beside the navi key) are very not sensitive.The keypad feels like microvawe keys..just too plasticy.otherwise its a great phone but holding onto my 6600 slide because of the lesser dimentions and i can live without wifi.(Who keeps a router open these days anyway???)
Great specs but absolutely wasted on S40. The large screen, GPS, HSDPA, HSUPA and user available Wi-Fi are brand new features for any S40 handset and the HSD/UPA speed surpasses any S60 handset. This is also the first Nokia with this screen resolution. Apart from the badly chosen OS it is a good phone.
