Nokia Announces New UMA Phone
Nokia's Newest unlicensed mobile access phone, the 6301 was unveiled in Helsinki today.
The world's number one maker of cellular handsets said that this model will be shipping in Europe in the fourth quarter of 2007. As their fourth UMA-enabled device, the estimated retail price is €230 ($322USD) before subsidies and taxes.
Hitting the scales at a mere 93 grams, the phone also offers a 2 megapixel camera, MP3 player, FM radio, Bluetooth support, and microSD expandable memory. It switches seamlessly between Wi-Fi and GSM 900/1800/1900 MHz networks.
UMA has been popularized in the United States by T-Mobile's [email protected] service, but there is no confirmation as to whether this particular model will be brought stateside. T-Mobile's service was launched with both the Nokia 6086 and the Samsung t409.
