Nokia Launches High Spec 6300 Successor

Good camera? Check. GPS? Check. 3G? Check...

Those with good memories – or coming to the end of 18 month contracts – may well remember the Nokia 6300 with a certain warm glow. It may have looked like a standard Nokia, but it was a little gem – and now we have its follow-up…

The ‘6700 classic’ (top – both pics) takes a rather large numerical jump from its predecessor but it justifies this with a rather comprehensive feature set including a five megapixel camera, GPS with Nokia Maps and 3G connectivity. It does on the other hand look rather too similar to the horrendously pretentious Arte 8800 range but we’ll ignore that for now.

Bundled services (isn’t it nice companies are slowly getting the SOFTWARE message) include Flickr and Facebook support along with access to the Ovi portal and we’ll be seeing it in July with a very reasonable £220 RRP when sold unsubsidised from the Nokia online store.

Also making an appearance today are the 6303 (above, left) and 2700 (above, right) classics for the low and lower midrange markets. As the numbers suggest, the former brings more to the table with a 2.2in screen, 3.2MP camera and 3.5mm headphone jack while the latter promotes its primary features as a 2MP camera, microSD slot and multimedia player so you get the picture.

Both will appear in Q2 for 135 euros and 85 euros respectively. Cheap and cheerful.
