Nokia 6730 at Vodafone
Nokia on Friday announced it will soon begin shipping its Nokia 6730 classic handset exclusively to Vodafone in all the markets it serves. Vodafone's services, including mobile Internet and e-mail, Vodafone Music Client, and navigation will be supported. Users will have access to yellow and white pages listings, making getting to places or people easier thanks to turn-by-turn driving and walking directions. Furthermore, the handset uses the Symbian S60 operating system, which means users can download smartphone-level apps.
The 6730's other features include quad-band GSM and dual-band HSPA network support as well as short-range wireless Bluetooth connection. The 2.2-inch display on the candybar's face has a 320x240 resolution. Photos are captured by a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash; they're stored on an included 1GB microSD card or larger replacement cards.
While pricing will differ depending on market and is unannounced, the 6730 Classic will begin shipping in June, available in both black and white colors.
