Nokia 6680 megapixel smartphone for 3G networks
Nokia is announcing the Nokia 6680 imaging smartphone, optimized for visual sharing, with two integrated cameras, a flash, and a bright screen of up to 262,144 colors. Designed for ease-of-use, the active slide covering the back camera of the Nokia 6680 provides fast camera activation as well as effortless switching between cameras during a video call.

A wide range of smartphone features, including organizer, video streaming and Internet browser, are complemented by 3G-enabled features such as two-way video calls, video sharing and always-on e-mail.

Based on the Series 60 Platform, the tri-band phone for GSM 900/1800/1900, EDGE and WCDMA networks offers roaming in over 100 countries around the world. The Nokia 6680 imaging smartphone is expected to be available in March 2005 with an estimated, unsubsidized sales price of approximately 500 euros.

In addition to two-way video calling functionality, which enables remote video conferencing, the Nokia 6680 imaging smartphone also provides for video sharing, a multimedia service that allows people to share live camera views or video clips during a normal voice call. By simply opening the camera slide, a live video can be added to a voice call and dropped when no longer needed.

The Nokia 6680 offers a variety of productivity features. The always-on e-mail supports office document viewers and various types of attachments (JPEG, MP3, PPT, DOC, XLS, PDF). The HTML browser brings web access in a pocketable format, and calendar information, contacts and tasks can be easily synchronized with compatible PCs.

The phone has an integrated VGA camera (640 x 480 pixels) at the front of the device, and a 1.3 megapixel camera (1280 x 960 pixels) with a slide for camera activation and control. The camera supports up to 6x digital zoom, and users can select from various color tones when capturing images, including sepia, negative as well as black and white.

With the new Nokia XpressPrint solution users can print directly from the Nokia 6680, using a range of compatible home or office printers or photo kiosks found in retail stores. In printing via PictBridge, for example, the handset is connected directly to a compatible printer via a USB cable. The Nokia XpressPrint solution also allows for wireless printing over Bluetooth wireless technology.

Weighing 133 grams and measuring 108.4 x 55.2 x 20.5 mm (104 cc), the Nokia 6680 imaging smartphone is based on Symbian OS. In addition to the integrated music player with stereo output, the Nokia 6680 also supports the mobile music solution for operators from Nokia and Loudeye.
