Nokia 6600i slide
In its second phone introduction in as many days, Nokia on Tuesday added the 6600i slide to its roster. The phone is Nokia's smallest-ever slider with a 5-megapixel camera (including dual LED flashes) and has a brushed-metal housing designed to catch attention. It also has a rare tap interface for quickly waking the phone, muting alerts and ringtones, and turning down calls.
The phone takes microSDHC cards up to 16GB and has both a 1GB card in the box as well as a combo headset, FM radio and mic. It ships to "select markets" in the summer for 200 Euros ($272) before carrier discounts and notably supports both GSM/EDGE and 3G on the 850MHz band, making it a likely candidate for a North American release.
