Free:Nokia 6102 for Cingular Wireless
Nokia joins the clamshell fray with a powerful contender that features a VGA camera, a stereo FM radio, a speakerphone, EDGE high-speed data, and a whole lot more. On top of all that, you get dual color displays and support for mobile e-mail, making the 6102 a great companion for Cingular subscribers.
The 6102's inner LCD display sports 128 x 160 resolution and support for 65,000 colors. Meanwhile, the outside cover of the handset features a supplementary, 96 x 65, 4,000-color display that can display picture IDs, time, call information, battery and signal strength, and more. The phone's VGA (640 x 480) camera unit is placed just above this display. Up and down buttons for volume control are placed on the left side. Most of the phone's features and onscreen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's control pad. There's also a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets, as well as USB and infrared ports for transferring data to and from the handset.
The 6102 supports polyphonic ringtones, as well as MP3-, MIDI-, AMR-, and True Tones-based music ringers so you can program your favorite songs to alert you of incoming calls. A number of ringtones come preloaded on the phone, and more ringtones can be downloaded from Cingular's MEdia service. Plus, with the phone's picture ID function, you can assign pictures to your most common callers. If you want to be discreet, there's also a vibrate ringer mode. Voice-activated dialing makes calling your friends, family, and associates as easy as saying their names. The 6102's phone book will keep track of all your contacts, and address book capacity is only limited by the phone's 3.5 MB of built-in memory. There's an integrated speakerphone for talking hands-free, and the 6102 also ships with push-to-talk capabilities, meaning you can have walkie-talkie communications with other push-to-talk subscribers in your contacts list.
Messaging, Internet, and Tools
The 6102 is built for powerful mobile messaging and Internet capabilities. With support for the MMS (multimedia messaging service), the phone can send picture, video, and text messages (Cingular messaging charges apply). When coupled with the 6102's camera, MMS up great opportunities for robust messaging. Instant messaging is also supported, and the phone ships with a built-in e-mail client that supports POP3 and IMAP protocols.
Getting on the Internet is easy with the 6102, as well. It supports the GPRS data protocol, as well as the new, high-speed EDGE wireless data service. A built-in Web browser makes it easy to purchase MEdia downloads and surf the wireless Web. Cingular's MEdia service lets you receive and send e-mails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. T9 text entry, a technology that makes it easier to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit--a plus for mobile e-mail and text messaging users.
The 6102 also supports PC synchronization standards via USB, which means you can manage and synchronize contacts, calendars, and other data with your PC. Nokia's PC Suite application makes this process a breeze.
Imaging and Entertainment
The 6102 is designed for flexible mobile fun. The built-in VGA camera, which features a night mode for better low-light shots, captures stills and video clips (video clips are captured at 128 x 96 resolution). Meanwhile, an integrated FM radio makes it easy to tune in your favorite stations. Picture effects and custom screen savers, as well as backgrounds and themes, can be set up to fit your personality. And don't forget that the 6620 is a powerful gaming companion with support for Java-based games. Many games are downloadable via the Cingular MEdia service.
The Nokia 6102 weighs 3.42 ounces and measures 3.35 by 1.77 by 0.94 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4 hours of digital talk time and up to 350 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/1800/1900 frequencies. The phone comes with a one-year limited warranty.
