Nokia 6800 phone now available through ATT

Taking advantage of AT&T Wireless’ advanced GSM/GPRS network and mMode data plans, the Nokia 6800 messaging phone allows users to enjoy next generation services such as mobile email, instantmessaging, the sharing of digital images and sound via Multimedia Messaging Services (MMS), and over-the-air application downloads. The phone, optimized for messaging, features flip access to a fullQWERTY keyboard for quick and convenient text input.

The Nokia 6800 phone (GSM/GPRS 850/1900MHz) operates on packet data GPRS networks for high-speed data connectivity and fast delivery of e-mail from POP3 and IMAP4 servers. Additionally, the Nokia 6800 comes pre-configured with an e-mail application for access to mMode Mail, and supports XHTML browsing for access to on-line mMode content, and JavaTM technology for downloading new applications. Users can install new applications over the air via mMode. A convenient notes application supports up to 3,000 characters of text, which can be sent as a text message or transferred to a PC for later reference. This messaging phone also offers speakerphone and voice recorder capabilities, as well as rich PIM functionality including contacts, calendar and to-do list which can be synchronized with many popular PC programs using the Nokia PC Suite available for free downloaded from www.nokia.com.

“By combining the capabilities of the Nokia 6800 messaging phone with AT&T Wireless’ mMode data plans, on-the-go professionals can have mobile access to e-mail, contacts, calendars and business-oriented applications,” said Jake Sagehorn, director and general manager at Nokia Mobile Phones’ Business Applications unit. “This combination reduces the need for people to carry multiple devices or seek out wired access points in order to get the information they need when they’re out of the office.”

“The addition of the Nokia 6800 phone to our line of mMode devices provides new ways for customers to enjoy the benefits of our powerful GSM/GPRS network,” said Ketan Kamdar, vice president product development for AT&T Wireless. “The phone, optimized for messaging and accessing rich mMode content, allows AT&T Wireless customers to realize the promise of next generation wireless communications.”

Enhanced features on the Nokia 6800 phone include a full-color display, integrated speakerphone and unique optional enhancements such as a desktop charger / music stand and a stereo headset for use with the integrated FM stereo.

Users can also attach the optional Nokia Camera Headset via the Pop-PortTM connector to capture, display and send digital images to a PC or other MMS-enabled mobile device.

For as little as $2.99 a month plus usage charges, AT&T Wireless customers can add mMode and get dozens of ways to stay connected to the people and things they care about. With mMode they can e-mail friends, check the latest news or sports scores, get driving directions, see if their flight is on time, or play a Kung Fu game, among many other possibilities. The Nokia 6800 messaging phone is available from AT&T Wireless for $149.99 and after mail-in rebate is $99.99.
