Today Nokia released a new 3G mobile phone in the form of the Nokia 6555 that according to them is meant to ‘pair original design and quality workmanship with outstanding features’.
Nokia usually leaves their design and fashion-centric devices for the 8000 and 7000 series, but it seems that the 6000 series is now getting some much needed attention in the design department. The Nokia 6555 is the first WCDMA phone with a smooth-back fold design with recessed hinge creating a seamless line when open. The 6555 looks like a blend between Samsung flip-phones and the Nokia 6101. It has a lot more curves then usual but is still instantly recognizable as a Nokia.
A prominent feature of the 6555 is the external analog clock on the external screen. On the inside they decided to go with a 16 million color 240×320 screen. Nokia lastest handset also has 30MB of user memory (with capacity for microSD expandable memory) and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. ‘Mobile-savvy consumers expect superior quality and design. We understood that need, and so created the the Nokia 6555.
The Nokia 6555 is a sophisticated accessory delivering the outstanding features that you expect from Nokia,’ said Markku Suomi, Product Group Director, Mobile Phones, Nokia. The Nokia 6555 will be available within the next month at an estimated retail price of approximately €200 or about $269 before subsidies or taxes.
