682 — Nokia 6600 captures mobile business

Jun 16, 2003 | Conteúdos Em Ingles

Nokia expanded its portfolio of imaging devices with the introduction of the Nokia 6600, an imaging device which aims at striking an ideal balance between advanced business features and a stylish, compact form. Packed with new features, this tri-band (GSM 900/1800/1900) phone is embedded with personal information management (PIM) applications, secure email access and access to richer mobile content via the XHTML browser.

“In an increasingly fast-paced business environment, where access to a wide range of information is a necessity, individuals must find ways to strike a balance between work and family,” says Juha Putkiranta, senior vice president of Nokia’s Imaging Business Unit. “The Nokia 6600 offers the best of both worlds – advanced business features to keep on top of everything at the office, together with the latest functionality to capture precious family moments.”

With the latest features in mobile imaging, the Nokia 6600 has an integrated VGA camera for video recording and still image capture with 2x digital zoom, as well as a large 65,536 colour display with an enhanced graphical user-interface. Users can create, send and receive multi-picture multimedia messages with Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) technology, which allows users to compose messages that display text, sound and images in a pre-determined order.

The Nokia 6600 also makes it possible to capture, send and receive video clips with audio, as well as receive streaming video content in both RealVideo and 3GPP video streaming formats. A convenient media gallery application makes access and organisation of multimedia content easy.

Enterprise users can access email and other corporate servers through the public Internet with security via SSL and the mobile VPN (Virtual Private Network) client, available for corporate customers. For fast access to mobile services and information, the advanced XHTML browser can be activated with a single click. The wallet application makes online payments and the storage of encrypted personal information easy.

Users can shape their mobile environment by adding applications compatible with either the Symbian 7.0s operating system or applications based on the latest Java technology, MIDP 2.0. Applications can be stored either in the phone’s 6MB internal memory or on the 32MB MMC card included in the sales package. The new Nokia phone is based on the Series 60 Platform.

Launched at the Nokia Press Update event in Helsinki, Finland, in conjunction with an Asia Pacific event held in Singapore themed “Image is Power”, the Series 60 based Nokia 6600 is expected to be commercially available during the fourth quarter of 2003 in Europe, Africa, and Asia-Pacific markets.
