It's been a while since we've seen a truly bad phone from Nokia, but the Nokia 6151 definitely seems to be a pretty badly thought out device.

We'll start with the good points though - it's a relatively lightweight 3G phone that weighs 98 grams and it will be quite inexpensive, costing around €240 /£160 before taxes and subsidy.

However, the Nokia 6151 has been crippled by a 128x160 pixel display which is far too basic for a modern phone (although it is at least a TFT display). This will make it difficult to use the 6151 for web browsing, reading emails or manipulating pictures - in fact, the rest of the features in the 6151 will be seriously hampered by the low resolution screen. In fact, we can think of no other current 3G phone that has a screen with this low a resolution.

It doesn't have video calling, but it does come with a 1.3 megapixel camera. There's also an MP3 player, email client, web browser, Bluetooth, FM radio, support for EDGE and microSD expandable memory.

 Nokia 6151 #2 It's difficult to see what the point of this phone is - it's not a business phone because of the poor display, and many businesses won't want a camera. It's not a leisure phone because it doesn't do video calling, it's incredibly dull to look at.. and there's the issue of the poor quality display again.

In fact, it appears that Nokia have managed to create a phone with no real market other than the fact that it's cheap, and to be honest for most contract customers there's a huge range of much better phones they can get, usually for free. The Nokia 6151 looks to be a bit of a turkey.

Just in case you do feel that the Nokia 6151 is for you, then it should be available from Q3 2006.
