    About: The Nokia 3230[1] is a Symbian Series 60 smartphone announced on November 2, 2004. It was billed as the first Series 60 phone aimed at the mass-market rather than the higher-end Series 60 devices with a relatively low cost of 350 euros when released in Q1 2005.This phone was designed as a replacement for two previous youth-oriented Nokia phones – the Nokia 3660 Series 60 smartphone and the Nokia 3220 feature phone. No variant of this phone was released for the United States market.

    It runs on Series 60 2nd Edition Feature Pack 1 (Version 2.1), based on Symbian OS 7.0s. It features several games (including multiplayer Bluetooth games), a 1.23-megapixel camera, Nokia Lifeblog, a 32 MB RS-MMC to store extra images and applications, Push to Talk, a 176?208 pixel 65,536-colour screen, multimedia messaging, and RealPlayer.

    The Nokia 3230 is one of the first with Push to Talk over Cellular (PoC), a walkie-talkie style method of communicating, and also Visual Radio, which enhances a normal radio receiver with extra info about artists and songs delivered over GPRS.

    For data transfer, the phone can use EDGE to upload up to 35.2 kbit/s and download up to 178.6 kbit/s, and is a GPRS multislot class 10, up to 80 kbit/s.

    Known issues
    It has been frequently reported that fine dust get into the space between the LCD screen and the transparent plastic cover. The dust can be manually removed by opening the plastic case.[4]

    In common with many phones of this type, the battery life is not as much as you would expect on older models of phones. Less than 2 days is typical whereas older ‘mono screen’ phones can often manage a week between recharging.

    Users also reported that before the call ringtone sound, the 3230 would give a loud “beep” sound, with no way to turn it off or control its volume. The device would beep even on silent mode. This issue was most common in the early models of the phone.

    Other users have reported slow response times for the camera, sudden screen blackouts and random reboots.

  • Nokia 6600

    WOW Factor: The most advanced Nokia phone ever in 2003

    Evaluation in my collection: Great – 9.5/10

    Nokia Codename: Calimero

    Life timer: N/A  |  Boxed: YES

    Release Year: 2003  |  Release Price: ~600 EUR

    About: The Nokia 6600 is a smartphone introduced on June 16, 2003 by Nokia, costing approximately ?600 when released in October 2003. It was Nokia’s high-end model of the 6xxx Classic Business Series. At the time of release, it was the most advanced product ever launched by Nokia, and it runs on Symbian OS 7.0s (Series 60 2nd Edition). It also featured a VGA camera, a music player and video player, Bluetooth and extended storage by memory card, being the second non-Communicator to do so (after the Nokia 3650).
    The model is still in use in many parts of the world and has proved to be a durable product. By many users it is considered as the trend setter phone which proved to be a bright milestone for its manufacturer. The phone was intended to replace the popular 6310i as the predominant business class model in the Nokia range. It should not be confused with the newer Nokia 6600 fold, Nokia 6600 slide and Nokia 6600i phones which have little resemblance to the original 6600. A variant of the Nokia 6600 was launched in the U.S. market as the Nokia 6620.
    During its lifespan, the 6600 sold 150 million units (along with Nokia 1200, Nokia 5230, Samsung E1100), making it one of the most successful phones to date.
