Nokia announced their latest smartphone handset, running as usually on the S60 OS. Providing decent mid-range functionality, the Nokia 6730 classic will be an exclusive offering for Vodafone customers around the world.
Mobile internet, Vodafone Music Client and personal and business email access along with mobile navigation capabilities are all included in the Nokia 6730 classic. The device utilises S60 software which means customers can easily download their choice of additional applications from the web.
The most notable features of the phone are its Symbian S60 3rd edition UI and the built-in GPS with A-GPS support. There is also a 3.2 megapixel autofocus snapper onboard as well as FM radio, Bluetooth and USB. A microSD card slot takes care of extending the 48 MB of internal memory.
The quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE Nokia 6730 classic comes with a 2.2″ 16M color display of QVGA resolution. The high-speed network connectivity is also taken care of with dual-band UMTS with both HSDPA and HSUPA support onboard. Unfrotunately, Wi-Fi is not available.
Peter Becker-Pennrich, Director of Terminals Marketing at Vodafone says: “The Nokia 6730 is a great all-round handset – just as perfect for mobile internet users as for music fans who want to take their tracks with them. This product follows a successful line-up of Vodafone exclusive devices from Nokia and is another great example of our collaboration.”
With the Nokia 6730 classic, getting lost and being out of touch with your friends could be a thing of the past thanks to the mobile navigation capabilities on the handset. The services offer accurate turn by turn instructions helping both drivers and pedestrians to find their way. It also provides access to comprehensive point of interest databases and both white and yellow pages information making it easy for the user to find their destination, whether that is an address, a company or even a person.
“‘Feature packed’ describes Nokia 6730 classic really well. With its iconic design – available in sleek black or white – the device is a perfect upgrade for Nokia 6500c or 6300 users or anyone seeking an elegant device, optimized for mobile internet and navigation. What’s more, this mobile comes with industry-leading power-saving features and accessories” says Gustavo Eichelmann, Head of Vodafone Global Account Team, Nokia.
