Standing by their promise that the Nokia 6210 Navigator will see a Q3 release, Nokia has launched the successor to the 6110 Navigator in India. The 6210 Navigator takes off after its predecessor in many ways, but also tries to offer some noticeable upgrades that the 6110 lacked.
Like the Nokia 6110 Navigator, the selling point of the 6210 Navigator is the built-in GPS receiver among other things like voice-activated controls and 3G, running on Symbian S60 operating system. The device comes with Nokia Maps 2.0 preinstalled and also has a compass for pedestrian usage. The WiFi factor is still mysteriously missing in the list of connectivity options but users should be able to make do with Bluetooth 2.0 and USB connections. There is a music player which plays the usual audio formats, an FM stereo radio, and a media player capable of playing MP4, H.263, and H.264 videos on its 2.4-inch QVGA display. Nokia could also have included a 3.5mm headphone jack, but that seems to be limited to its high-end models and the XpressMusic line for now. The Nokia site also says the phone can be used in “Portrait or Landscape modes,” so we wouldn’t be surprised is there is an accelerometer hiding in there.
A quick rundown of the specs if you don’t know them already:
* Network Support: WCDMA 900/2100, HSDPA and GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900
* 2.4-inch 16-million color QVGA display of 320×240 resolution
* GPS and aGPS
* Bluetooth 2.0 and Micro-USB connectivity
* Symbian S60 OS, release 3.2 user interface
* FM radio
* 128MB internal memory with microSD expansion
* 369MHz processor
* 950 mAh battery
The Nokia 6210 Navigator is available all over India and although no information about the price is provided, we could venture a guess that it would be not more than Rs. 18000 (about $430).
