Nokia 6300i brings Wi-Fi home

26 Mar, 2008

The highly popular Nokia 6300 has received a worthy successor in the face of the Nokia 6300i. Topped with Wi-Fi and VoIP support, the Nokia 6300i retains the original looks and functionality of the previous device.

Surely an exciting upgrade, the Nokia 6300i is in fact identical to the Nokia 6301, which has UMA support beside Wi-Fi. Behind the UMA abbreviation lays some simple means for your network carrier to charge you for calls made via the Wi-Fi network as if they were normal GSM ones. The Nokia 6301 was produced for some network carriers and never saw the light of day on the general market.

The Nokia 6300i takes care of that blunder - you now have the customizability of the Nokia S40 software platform (same as Nokia 6300 and Nokia 6500 classic) bundled with Wi-Fi support for fast data transfers, VoIP support for making calls via Wi-Fi and also Nokia Maps to help you find your way around.

The tri-band GSM/EDGE enabled Nokia 6300i has a 2-inch QVGA TFT display, a 2 megapixel camera, microSD memory card slot, a 2.5 mm audio connector and stereo Bluetooth.

The Nokia 6300i will be available in Graphite Grey for around 175 euro before taxes somewhere in Q2 2008.
