Nokia 6300 Bound for US
Nokia's recently announced 6300 has been approved for release in the US, according to an FCC filing. Officially launched with European callers in mind, the 6300 is a quad-band GSM phone that can operate properly in North America as well as its native continent. Its 2-megapixel camera, FM radio, and 135MB of internal memory are expected to remain intact. US carriers Cingular and T-Mobile are likely to be initial suppliers when the phone becomes available in early 2007 and should sell the phone at retail stores near its $328 European price.
