Nokia cancels 5MP handset

Nokia, the world's largest cellphone maker, is allegedly declining to bring an unnamed handset (pictured) to market due to low perceived demand. The stylish handset is similar in appearance to the Finnish phone maker's Prism line of phones, while its functions are nearly identical to the recently introduced but homelier looking 6260 slider. Like the 6260, the axed S40-based handset includes a 480x320 display, a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, a GPS receiver and an integrated Wi-Fi module. The handset was reportedly due to cost about $300, which could be part of the reason most markets did not want to purchase the handset.

Nokia offers other handsets with similar features and lower price tags, including the Nokia 6220 Classic and Nokia 6210 Navigator, albeit without the fashionable exteriors. This handset's violet body is entirely made of metal, including the keys. A leather insert for the back panel is optional.

As the handset is complete, some believe it will still see the light of day in certain markets, most likely in certain countries in Asia. [via Unwired View]
