The 262,000 color 128 x 160 pixel screen can be used to show off the latest downloadable wallpapers, themes, games and applications, while the built-in FM radio and real-sound ringtones supporting MP3, AAC and other file types let owners express themselves through music.

Along with integrated Bluetooth technology and hands-free speakerphone, the fold-style Nokia 2365i phone includes a large 128 x 160 pixel color main display complemented by a high-visibility 96 x 65 pixel blue/black external display.

A mere 3.7 ounces, the Nokia 2365i provides up to 4 hours of talk time or up to 10 days of standby time.

The feature-filled Nokia 6126 phone

When Nokia engineers were tasked with designing a sleek, fold-style handset that did not compromise on quality, ease-of-use, style or features, they took up the challenge and delivered a product that changes the conventional wisdom that a slim phone cannot be as powerful as it is beautiful. Today, Nokia unveils the result of this engineering challenge, the quad-band (GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900) Nokia 6126 phone. Featuring a graceful tapered design that averages a mere 17mm (.67 inches) from top to bottom, it still manages to deliver a wide range of the most desired mobile features which are easily accessible via Nokia's hallmark intuitive user interface. The Nokia 6126 phone is expected to be available in North American markets during the 2nd quarter of 2006.

Along with its slim, tapered profile - the Nokia 6126 phone is also just 48mm (1.9 inches) wide and weighs in at a featherweight 112 grams (3.9 ounces). While these compact dimensions make the Nokia 6126 phone easy to pick up, the luxurious soft-touch finish makes it equally hard to put down. Besides the soft-touch black finish, the Nokia 6126 phone can also be found in silver with white, beige or red accents.

For an added touch of fun and convenience, the Nokia 6126 phone also integrates a push-to-open button into its design. Located at the edge of the hinge, the button, when depressed, allows the phone to automatically glide into the open position. This not only makes for convenient one-handed operation, but satisfies the desire to create a level of 'phone envy' among friends.

A full suite of the most popular features has been engineered into the Nokia 6126 phone. To enjoy music on the go, the Nokia 6126 phone includes a digital music player that supports a variety of formats including MP3, AAC, AAC+ and eAAC+. With an optional 1 GB microSD card, approximately 1,000 songs can be stored on the hot-swappable memory card and enjoyed using an optional wired stereo headset, or for the ultimate in convenience, through an optional wireless stereo headset using Bluetooth technology.

Quad-band GSM/EDGE technology allows the Nokia 6126 phone to be used on virtually all GSM systems around the world (subject to operator roaming agreements), while Nokia's industry benchmark RF engineering maximizes performance to get the most out of these global networks.

The integrated 1.3 megapixel camera includes 8x digital zoom and a full screen portrait mode viewfinder that lets users see exactly what they are capturing. In video mode, the Nokia 6126 can capture video clips that can be saved, sent, or used as video ring tones on both the internal and external displays. Additional features include streaming audio and video support, built-in 3D games, including a 3D version of the classic 'Snake' game, local and remote synchronization of contact, calendar and to-do lists and enhanced voice features including speaker-independent name dialing.

The Nokia 6126 phone implements the all-new third edition of Nokia's popular Series 40 user interface. This user interface builds upon the intuitive menu structure that has made Nokia Series 40-based handsets perennial best-sellers around the world. It also adds 'Active Standby Mode', which allows the idle screen to keep owners informed of calendar and to-do items and to provide quick access to the most-used applications.

To make this powerful functionality easily accessible, the Nokia 6126 phone includes the latest in human interface technology. The main display features an ultra-crisp 2.2 inch 16.7 million True Color TFT 320 x 240 pixel QVGA display to make icons, text and images incredibly sharp and true-to-life. The external display is a full 262,000 color 128 x 160 pixel screen - which delivers even higher quality output than the main display found on many phone models. For fast, accurate data entry, the Nokia 6126 phone employs a unique dual level keypad that uses a raised area on each key which allows for the largest possible key size, yet still delivers a natural space between keys for a positive tactile response.

Nokia Unveils Desirably Slim GSM Phone

The latest Nokia GSM handset, the Nokia 6126 phone, boasts a full feature set with music, design and imaging. This quad-band (GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900) has a 1.3 megapixel camera, music player with removable memory available via hot-swappable card, Bluetooth, video ring tones, and a large 16 million color screen display - all wrapped in a thin, sleek package.

Nokia Expands CDMA Portfolio with Multiple New Handsets

With the addition of three new CDMA handsets, Nokia's range of CDMA products continues its growth across all consumer segments with a variety of designs at multiple price points.

The ultra compact and sleek new Nokia 2365i entry-tier flip phone features a large internal display, striking blue-on-black external display, extended talk time and Bluetooth technology. The Nokia 2865/2865i phone is an elegant and stylish monoblock design with a large color display, Bluetooth technology, internal antenna and FM Radio.

Apple iPod Hi-Fi

Something very creepy happened during Apple’s press conference when Steve Jobs introduced the iPod Hi-Fi, or, as they like to call it “Home stereo – Reinvented.” I know that I am not the only one who felt it, because my email box filled up (okay, 14 emails) with comments about the end of high-end audio, as we know it.
