Nokia 6800 was a neat little device with a fold-out
keyboard for texting, and really there's very little
to fault it on. However, Nokia doesn't like to stand
still, and they are working on a replacement phone,
the Nokia 6820 for release sometime in 2004.
The Nokia 6820 is a tri-band phone in
a similar format to the 6800, but this features a built-in
352x288 pixel resolution camera and comes in a slightly smaller
physical package than the older phone.
It has a 128x128 4,000 colour display,
plus a 6800-style full QWERTY keyboard. The
Nokia 6820 also supports Bluetooth, Infrared and USB
connectivity, supports Java applications and GPRS and
EDGE high-speed data transfer.
Talktime is up to 7 hours, which makes
this practical for business use, with around 10 days
It still looks to be some way off in
production terms, so expect the device to be around
sometime in the Spring of 2004.
