The Nokia 3300 smart phone is now available from Cingular Wireless. This includes an integrated MP3 player to download, record, and play music, and a keyboard for text messaging.
Nokia calls this a “music phone” and it has been designed for consumers who place a premium on having music with them, wherever they go. Users can transfer music files from their PC to an MMC memory card in their phone or listen to the built-in FM radio. They can also record music off the radio.
Mike Dobbs, vice president product management at Cingular Wireless, said, “Not only can Cingular customers download, record and play their favorite songs but they can create their own play lists and ringtones, using these songs.”
The 3300 also has an integrated keyboard split on either side of its 128-by-128 pixel, 12-bit color screen. The keyboard was specifically added for the American market. The device is 4.4 ounces and 4.5 inches wide, 2.5 inches high, and .8 inches thick.
It is a dual-band (850/1900 MHz) phone that runs on GSM and GPRS wireless networks. It comes with web browser and an email application that supports IMAP4 and POP3. It also includes SMS and MMS messaging apps.
It uses Nokia’s Series 40 for an operating system. It can run application written in Java for this platform.
It has a 720 mAh battery that can power the 3300 for up to 220 minutes of talk time or 230 hours of standby time. Nokia says it can play music for up to 11 hours.
It will sell for $250, though Cingular is offering a $100 mail-in rebate.
