Nokia 6133 at T-Mobile
Nokia on Monday said it would provide T-Mobile's US branch with a uniquely enhanced flip-phone. The 6133 is an improvement upon the earlier 6126 already in use at some carriers that adds FM radio to the previous version's existing AAC and MP3 support. The keypad and navigation controls have also been adjusted, says Nokia. Features are otherwise the same but still impressive to many mid-range phones: the 6133 has a large 2.2-inch screen capable of displaying 16 million colors, a 1.3-megapixel camera that can take advantage of this increased color depth in photo previews, EDGE broadband support, and a microSD slot that can hold up to 1GB of music or other files. T-Mobile has said the phone will be available as of today, but hasn't formally announced pricing.
