Nokia intros "seamless" 6555 with 3G for US

Nokia 6555

Nokia on Tuesday morning launched the 6555. The Finnish company's new clamshell is one of the few designs with a recessed hinge that creates a near-perfect seam between the top and bottom shells when the device is open. This not only adds to the sleek look but is more comfortable to hold than most other phones, Nokia says. The display is also said to be attractive with a full 16 million color, 240x320 LCD that provides a truer picture when watching video stored on microSD cards or capturing images with the built-in (but currently unspecified) camera.

The 6555 is fully capable of running on North American networks thanks to quad-band GSM; support for 3G-level Internet access over HSDPA is also present, though Nokia has yet to explain whether the extra speed will be accessible in North America or limited to European frequencies. Versions of the phone with black, gold, and red accents will ship next month for about 200 ($269) in Europe before carrier discounts or taxes. If available in the US, the phone is most likely to be picked up by AT&T.
