Nokia 6210 Navigator: The Traveler’s Delight

While other mobile phone companies are focusing their attention on being the next smartest “smartphone” and integrating in just one gadget all computer and internet features, Nokia has gone in another direction. It still is producing gizmos that will beat all other so-called “smartphones”, but in the meantime, it has taken a breather and created the Nokia 6210 Navigator.

The Navigator has a very specific target market. These are people who love to travel and generally, people who doesn’t like to get lost in a new place and in this day and age, that’s practically everyone! The Navigator is equipped with a top-of-the-line GPS navigation system that can measure changes in orientation as well as direction. The main system is called Nokia Maps 2.0 which can find the shortest possible route to any specified location. There is a built-in compass that will determine your exact location and adjust your orientation when necessary. This mobile phone is perfect for following directions on foot.

However, if your destination is farther away, you can mount the phone in a car kit accessory included when you purchase the phone. Its touch screen will make accessing it easy while you are driving. The Navigator has A-GPS or assisted global positioning system capable of getting satellite signal in a few seconds. There are free local maps already installed in the phone’s memory and downloadable maps are available on the Nokia website. However, foreign maps and city guides need to be purchased at a reasonable price.

This phone is a great choice for people who are always on the go. Businessmen who travel constantly will consider this a good investment. And when you are having a vacation, it’s also a plus that the Navigator has a 3.2 megapixel camera, complete with flash, zoom capability and video calling. And long trips on the airplane won’t be a bore because this device supports an MP3 player capable of playing MP3, AAC, eAAC and M4A file formats. You can also be in touch with friends and family because this phone allows it user to send and receive email, go online and download from the internet. Its HSDPA capability will make it faster and easier for the owner to use its internet feature. Connectivity includes Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0.

The Navigator is a pretty slider phone, only 15 mm thin and weighs a decent 117 grams. Internal memory is only 120 MB but its MicroSD Transflash allows for larger memory. It is slated to be release third quarter of this year and Nokia hopes to get people hooked on this very functional phone.
