nokia philippines just announced that it will be released towards the end of the second quarter, possibly end of may 2002, here in the philippines.
i'll buy it.it's elegant and smart.it's better than 8310(kitsh design),8855(poor functions.
I think Nokia realise just how poor the 8310 looks and that many people have complained about it, wont buy it and have therefore redesigned/remarketed it with a few small improvements. Looks great.
The Nokia 6510 has a high resolution display with a new pastel blue LED backlight for enhanced display clarity. The display also allows users to view four full lines of text at a time, making it ideal for mobile Internet browsing or Personal information management - like viewing the Phone Book and Calendar functions.
Nice phone!!!! a 8 on 10 !!!!when are these phone are ocming to canada????????
Dear Kaloo, if you bothered to compare the specs or even read the earlier post, you would find out that this is almost the exact phone as the 8310. This phone should belong to the 8000 series rather than the 6000, actually, if Nokia was really honest they would call it 8310 vers 2 (or something). And not that I won't to defend Nokia, but it has got GPRS, just like 8310(and everything else the 8310 has). And all countrys with decent phone companys supports GPRS by now.
This is going to be the one of the classics.
Similar to what the 6150 was when it was king. Great display, and for once its not lacking any essential features, except GPRS, but who cares ... most networks arent supporting that right now anyways.
Great phone ! i would trade in an 8310 for this anyday. And someone elses query as to how much the 7650 was going to be...
well it will be around the same price as a 9210 when its out.
i think its a gret phone. i like the backlight and the buttons. i have a 8850 and im thinking to sell it and purchase a 6510 and i was wondering what the price was? could you tall me? i would be most greatfull! my e-mail addres is email@example.com thanks
He he, it seems to be a showdown between just the two of us.
If there's an update on the calendar (something Nokia hasn't bothered to do for ages) also,and improved screen, it seems a little more justifiable to launch this phone, but not much. But my point is that Nokia hasn't spoiled us with something new and interesting as they used to do for a while. It seems more and more that Ericsson, Siemens and Samsung have got the lead by now (maybe not in sales, but that's just a matter of time).
And for the 7650, I have heard a lot different figures on the prize. Some say it will cost as much as the 9210, some says it will cost 5500 SEK(slightly less than T68 and almost the same prize as 8310). I cannot imagine that this phone with digicamera,colour screen etc will have the same price as the 8310, not in my life. No way that can be (even if the 8310 is extremely overprized).
Well.. it might sound small difference, but in use it is quite big; 6510 shows WAP pages better than 8310 does (does'nt cut 1/4 out from right side etc..). And in SMS use extra line is also cool.
Calendar in 6510 is also better than in 8310.
7650 won't be that expensive, estimated price in Europe is about 550 EUR, so, it might be cheaper than T68!
Have checked about the display and have to admit that youre right, but hey, that's not a BIG difference. And even if you think, it doesn't justifie Nokia to release one similar phone after another.
The only interesting phone they have released recently is the 7650, and it's more of a PDA(weigth,price etc) then a phone. The rest is just old news or bad news.
Seems like Nokia are getting a bit desperate, and feel that they have to display a lot of new phones just to show that they still are a creative company. But the sad thing is that they actually only got one new interesting phone, and that one isn't actually a "pure" phone.
8310 display is 84*48, and 6510 96 x 60 pixels. A BIG difference when browsing WAP pages.
Personally, I still think that Nokis is the king. I used Ericsson T68 for a week, and ... well, cool desing and featurs, but implementation was very poor. Phone was too slow to use (many times slower than Nokia 6210 was with sw 3.0x). And very buggy in all other ways as well, crashed several times in a day etc. And there is no use for color display in that kind of phone.. hey, MMS phone with 1 picture memory! WOW! =)
Well there is a difference between Nokia 6110 and 6150. The later has dualband, no biggie I know, but at the time it was.
And if the 6510 has IrDA, Cat has even a bigger point, the phones are completely similar (I havent found anything about difference in resolution). And for the looks, it's not difficult to make a phone that looks better than the 8310, which must be one of the ugliest of Nokias later phones, well not including the 5210. And that's kind of sad, cause they are the only phones that doesn't fit in Nokias standard design, which is getting kind of boring by now.
Once Nokia where kings with beautiful design and revolutionary functions, not more.
