A new Series40 phone by Nokia is no great surprise but with the new 6260 Slide, Nokia has announced a phone that looks really good on paper. For the first time an S40 phone will feature assisted GPS, which is a very good plus.
Additionally, a bunch of other features stand out on the 6260 Slide- there is the 5 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera with dual LED flash, a decent 2.4 inch screen that can support a resolution of 320×480 and can show up to 16 million colors; then there is the TV-Out port and you can extend the phone’s memory to a maximum of 8GB thanks to a microSD slot. Battery life is supposed to last about 4 hours and 6 hours with normal usage on 3G and GSM networks respectively. The phone also has support for Wi-Fi.
Nokia can be expected to launch the phone sometime in January or February of next year for around €300 (Rs. 19,295).
