Nokia 6267, 3500 Classic and 6121 Classic Preview

19th June 2007

These three new Nokia handsets are aimed at midrange customers and consist of two 3G devices and a stylish GSM handset aimed at the value-for-money end of the midrange market.

The Nokia 6267 is a very conventional looking Nokia clamshell phone, however this particular handset is a 3G device with dual-band 850/2100 MHz UMTS plus quad-band GSM with GPRS and EDGE data. In other words, the Nokia 6267 will work pretty much anywhere in the world, including 3G networks in the US. In effect, this is the clamshell version of the Nokia 6120 Classic.

In terms of specifications, the Nokia 6267 hits the midrange of the market precisely - featuring a 240x320 pixel main panel in 16 million colours, a 2 megapixel camera plus a secondary camera for video calling, stereo Bluetooth, microSD expandable memory (up to 4GB) and external media controls.

As the model number might suggest, this is a Symbian Series 40 device and not a smartphone. Still, that's good enough for the vast majority of customers and indeed the 6267 seems to have been designed to appeal to a wide customer base without adding too many expensive features.

At roughly 240 / 150 / $290 before tax and subsidy, the price is pretty much middle-of-the range too. If you're looking for a 3G Nokia clamshell and you don't want a high-end N-Series device, then the Nokia 6267 is likely to be the type of device you would go for. The Nokia 6267 should be available from Q3 2007.

For such a significant handset in Nokia's range, it is just such a shame that they couldn't find a more memorable model number.

If you think you've seen the Nokia 6121 Classic before, you'd be right. It is almost identical in every way to the Nokia 6120 Classic announced in the spring.

As with the 6120, this is a lightweight HSDPA-capable 3G phone with a two megapixel camera and dual-band UMTS. However, this time the Nokia 6121 Classic comes with 900/2100 MHz UMTS rather than the 6120's 850/2100 MHz arrangement. And just in case you're wondering who uses 900 MHz UMTS.. well, at the moment we can't thing of anyone, but this is a proposed standard to roll out 3G networks in countries where cost is an issue and this frequency band requires less base stations to make it work than the "traditional" 2100 MHz frequency.

Nokia say that the 6121 Classic should be available during Q3 2007 for around 260 / 160 / 300 before tax and subsidy.

Priced at just 135 / 85 / $160 before tax and subsidy, the Nokia 3500 Classic comes with a 2 megapixel camera, and an FM radio.

At the time of going to press, information on the Nokia 3500 Classic is vague, so we can't tell you much more about it. From what we can tell, it only has a 128x160 pixel display and we can't tell you if it has an MP3 player, Bluetooth or expandable memory. We'll bring you more information on the Nokia 3500 Classic when we have it.
