Nokia 6300i phone
Nokia has announced a new GSM phone, the 6300i. A variant on the current 6300, the phone's primary feature is the ability to make both cellular and VoIP calls. The latter are possible over Wi-Fi, an option which may save money when in range of an open hotspot. The phone is also able to browse the web and download applications over Wi-Fi, and can store as many as 2,000 numbers in memory.
Nokia is otherwise reticent on sharing specifications; the regular 6300 is made of stainless steel, however, and has a two-megapixel camera. It also features a music player and an FM radio, along with expandable memory via a microSD slot. There is no mention of the UMA technology found on the 6301. The 6300i should ship to "select markets" in the second quarter of 2008, at a cost of €175 ($273).
