Nokia 6300 at Fido
Bucking the trend for phone releases in the West, Canadian cell provider Fido today announced that it was the first to pick up the Nokia 6300 in North America. First introduced for Europe in a fall preview, the device brings the media focus of more recent Nokia phones to a candybar platform with an FM radio, AAC/MP3 music playback, 135MB of built-in memory, and a microSD card. A 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and EDGE are also stock.
In Fido's version, the phone comes bundled with a 512MB microSD card to get users started with their music collections. The 6300 ships now through Fido's online and retail presences for as little as $100 CDN ($91 US) with a three-year contract and as much as $300 CDN ($273 US) either without any contract or with Fido's prepaid phone service.
