Channeling the svelte looks of Apple's iPod Nano 5th Generation (in my opinion) while donning a 5 megapixel camera (2592 x 1944 pixels) with Carl Zeiss optics, Nokia 6700 Slide could very well end up being one of Nokia's strongest midrange releases of 2010.
Clearly, Nokia is not about to be smoked by other phone makers in the midrange messaging phone category. The Finnish company is still keeping major tricks up its sleeves.
Clad in anodized Aluminum, Nokia 6700 Slide comes in 6 fresh and vivid colors: petrol blue, aluminum, pink, red, lime and purple. It runs on Symbian OS v9.3, S60 rel. 3.2 operating system and supports 3G (HSDPA, 10.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 2 Mbps) and Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity. Other features include:
2.2 inches TFT screen, 240 x 320 pixels,
45MB of internal memory
microSD card slot, which supports up to 16GB - for songs, photos, videos (2GB included)
Stereo FM radio
Video recording VGA@15fps
Battery life of up to 300 hours on 2G / Up to 250 hours on 3G
Talk time of up to 4 hours 2G / Up to 3 hours on 3G
Music play up to 29 hours
Another cool feature: After you take a photo with 6700 Slide's 5MP camera you can edited it on the go and upload it to the web directly from the camera menu.
Nokia 6700 Slide is already in the 'coming soon' list of Nokia Philippines website. The phone will run for $239 or roughly Php 11,000 in the US when it comes out in that market. Let's see if it will have the same price tag when it reaches Pinas.
