Sometimes the simplest handsets are the best.
When I went into the Orange shop over the weekend, I was surprised to see one of their most popular PAYM (pay monthly) handsets was the Nokia 6700. Is it a new smart phone? No….. it is apparently the successor to the ever so popular 6500. The main reason this has been selling so well is because of its simplicity. When Nokia first came into the market, the simple, easy to use interface caught the attention of many and its followers began.
Ofcourse there are some updates to the mobile phone, there is the GPS, Nokia Maps, 3G with HSDPA and a 5mp autofocus camera. The Nokia 6300 only had a 2mp. The Nokia 6700 is reliable and easy to use and is a traditional classic style mobile but not old fashioned in any way. The keypad has well-spaced buttons so you will be able to quickly text without making mistakes.
Oh and I forgot to mention the camera also has an LED flash and the video camera is pretty good you can record at up to VGA resolution. And yes there is an MP3 player but it can just handle a limited number of formats. You can tune into the FM radio and with RDS can see what you are listening to.
The memory is quite a lot too, there is already 170 MB of built-in memory, enough for 40 MP3 tracks, but there is also a microSD card slot which can hold cards up to 8GB.
So next time you are looking for a new phone, you might just want to have a look at those mobile phones that aren’t as flashy and as big as the others. Sometimes the best things come in small packages. Those sticking to a budget will be pleased to know it is free on pay monthly contracts of 20 pounds per month.
