Nokia Unveils 6620 Smartphone With EDGE

Nokia today unveiled the new Nokia 6620 smartphone, the first of its kind targeted for the Americas market amd supporting new high-speed EDGE networks. The Nokia 6620 imaging phone employs a 65,536 colour TFT screen for viewing still images and video clips captured by the integrated VGA camera and real-time video streaming over the EDGE network using the built-in RealOne mobile player. While taking pictures, users have the ability to use the 2x digital zoom and a self-timer feature, while the extended memory enables the saving of hundreds or even thousands of images.

 
The Symbian OS-based Series 60 platform allows for the creation of richer applications including business and productivity tools such as mobile e-mail, over-the air synchronization of PIM data, a fully integrated Internet browser (HTML 4.01, XHTML/CSS and WML). The smartphone also comes with a wide selection of third-party applications, just like its European sibling, the Nokia 6600. The Nokia 6620 imaging phone (GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/1900/1800 MHz) is expected to be available during the second quarter of 2004.

Again, as with the Nokia 6600, the Nokia 6620 supports a wide range of messaging features, including MMS with SMIL (Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language) technology. SMIL technology allows images, sounds and text to be built into a single MMS, and then received in the order intended by the sender. An integrated image uploader allows pictures to be sent directly to Internet-based photo services, where images can be stored, sorted, shared, and made into prints. Additionally, images can be printed at home with the use of a compatible Bluetooth enabled printer.

The high-speed capability of EDGE technology enables the Nokia 6620 imaging phone to deliver real-time video streaming, and the built in RealOne mobile player can access both the existing base of Real formatted video content and new 3GPP content designed specifically for mobile devices. In addition, the combination of EDGE and the full Internet browser within the Nokia 6620 offers users access to virtually all online content over a high-speed network.

For organization, the Nokia 6620 offers PIM functionality that can be synchronized over the air or directly to a PC using cable, infrared or Bluetooth connectivity. Between the on-board memory and the included MMC memory card, the Nokia 6620 imaging phone has over 40 MB of memory in its standard configuration. E-mail and instant messaging clients support text communication, while presence functionality allows users to communicate their current availability to associates. The handset can also support VPN clients for access behind corporate firewalls, improving access to corporate online information sources such as intranet sites.
