Nokia 6760 Slide review

For those who like the style of the Nokia Surge that is now available exclusively with AT&T win the United States, you may be glad to hear that Nokia has released a replica model almost named the Nokia 6760 Slide that is available for global use.

Coincidently, the global model also comes equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera instead of a 2.0 megapixel camera, which may get some of the folks in the States searching it out as well.

The layout of the Nokia 6760 slide is pretty simple as the front has a nice 2.4” 320 x 240 pixel display that is placed vertically over the mostly horizontal styled phone, which is slightly odd in itself.

However, for those who can adjust easily to this visual twist the buttons are located under the screen and there is a full sized QWETY keyboard that slides out from the mobile lengthwise for easy texting and web browsing.

It is a little on the hefty side weighing in at 124 grams with dimensions of 98 x 58 x 16mm which should make it a little lighter, but you do receive a decent battery life for an entry level smartphone of four hours on a 3G network.

Basic features on the mobile include 8GB of expandable memory with the purchase of a microSD card and Bluetooth as well as the camera, which also supports video although the capture rate is low at only 15 frames per second.

It does include however both support for GPS and Nokia’s map application which can be useful if you want to check out directions before you set out on a journey, or have a passenger who can access the maps service for you.

Driving and using the small screen however might present a problem, so if you want GPS for these purposes the Nokia 6760 may not be the best mobile for you.

As the Nokia 6760 Slide does have a Symbian S60 operating system it also comes equipped with a significant amount of other useful applications such as shortcuts to the most popular social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter as well as built in instant messaging systems.

It also supports most email formats as well as Microsoft Exchange push email, which can be useful if you want to manage more than one email account from your mobile phone.

Additionally, the 6760 Slide also has a 2.5mm audio jack which may send you to the store for a new set of headphones and supports FM radio, as well as the use of a multimedia player to view video and listen to audio download.

It also supports both 900MHz and 2100MHz 3G networks as well as quad band GSM which is why you can use it globally, making it a nice mobile for those who travel frequently.

Nokia announced that the mobile should become available in the third quarter of this year and will be available in white, red, and black for about €199.
