Nokia 6810 Messaging Phone
at the same time as the 6820, the Nokia 6810 is more
focussed on the needs of business. The focus of
the Nokia 6810 is messaging and Nokia have aimed
to make this as flexible as possible. Firstly, the phone
opens up to give a QWERTY keyboard for ease of
typing, a feature that was first seen on the Nokia 6800.
It supports mobile email and Blackberry connectivity,
SMS, MMS and has a built-in XHTML web browser.
And because even businesspeople need
to be kept amused, the Nokia 6810 comes with a built-in
FM radio and can run Java applications and games.
The Nokia 6810 measures 119x55x23mm
(main image is actual size on a 72dpi monitor) and weighs
122 grams, so it's not a lightweight phone, but
on the other hand the large buttons and easy form factor
mean that the phone is quite easy to use. The screen
is 128x128 pixels in 4,000 colours, which isn't hugely
impressive compared to some other phones around, but
it's good enough for messaging and web browsing.
This is a tri-band phone, and the 6810 also
comes with Bluetooth and infra-red connectivity, plus
a Nokia data cable. The 6810 supports EDGE and GPRS
high-speed data transfer, so the phone can either be
used as a standalone web device or in conjunction with
a laptop to act as a modem.
phone has a talktime of 3 to 6 hours and up to 15 days
standby. Expected to be available in the first half
of 2004, the Nokia 6810 will probably become a favourite
in businesses worldwide. The cost isn't clear at the
moment, but it's likely to be fairly low and should
make this a very popular handset.
