Nokia 6210 Navigator - Future phone

Nokia 6210 Navigator

Nokia 6210 Navigator

13 February 2008
Written by David Hall

Building on the success of the 6110 Navigator, Nokia have announced details of its replacement: the 6210 Navigator. This upgraded version sports the same sliding form factor but with a larger display, more internal memory, and additional GPS functionality to make navigation that much easier.

Starting with the LCD, the 6210 Navigator has a 2.4” TFT LCD, capable of displaying up to 16 million colours within 320 x 240 pixels. In comparison, the 6110 Navigator’s display was .2” smaller, with the same colour and resolution specifications. The LCD is equipped with a light sensor to conserve precious battery power by deactivating the backlight when necessary.

The 6210’s built-in GPS chip has Assisted GPS (aGPS) which uses the handset’s Internet connectivity to download information on where the GPS satellites are, which in turn cuts down the time taken to lock-in to your position significantly. Pre-installed on the 6210 Navigator is Nokia’s Maps 2.0 application (also announced at World Mobile Congress 2008), and maps for the local region.

Nokia Maps 2.0 includes both pedestrian and car mapping systems, and provides voice-guided navigation to addresses and points of interest. Also built-in to the handset is an accelerometer, which detects when the handset is moved and rotates the display accordingly. This works hand-in-hand with the mapping software, which will rotate on the spot when the handset (or you!) moves.

Nokia have upgraded the digital camera on the 6210 Navigator, opting for a 3.2mpx module (6110 Navigator was 2mpx). The camera can capture still images up to 2592 x 1944 pixels, and video at up to 640 x 480 pixels and 30fps. With ~120MB of user memory and support for microSD memory cards, the 6210 Navigator should suit most users’ memory requirements.

Three regional variations of the 6210 Navigator will be offered. All versions support the GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz networks, but their WCDMA support changes due to the different bands used for 3G networks around the world. One supports WCDMA 900/2100MHz, another supports WCDMA 850/2100MHz, and the other supports WCDMA 850/1900MHz. All variations support the HSDPA protocol, with download speeds up to 3.6Mbit/s. Alternatively, GPRS or EDGE can be used on 2G networks.

Other features on the 6210 Navigator include a stereo FM radio with Visual Radio, Music and Video player, and Series 60 3rd Edition Platform user interface.

The 6210 Navigator will be released to the market in Q3 2008, at an approximate price of 300 euros (~$484AUD at time of printing), before taxes and subsidies.
