Joining the gorgeous Nokia 6700 Slide on the 'coming soon' list of Nokia Philippines website is the equally stunning compact slider, Nokia 7230 :
Featuring rounded chrome edges, Nokia 7230 looks both well-constructed and elegant. But the shell is only half of what's great about this phone.

Nokia 7230 comes in two colors: Graphite and Hot Pink. The phone is now slated for Q1 2010 release in Europe with an incredibly low price tag of 100 Euros or only around Php 6,700 . Let's hope it retains that price when it reaches the Philippines sometime this year.
