Nokia 6600 on the streets
Designed for a multitasking, mobile workforce, the Nokia 6600 phone has started shipping. In addition to the advanced business features and sophisticated imaging functionality, the Nokia 6600 introduces a range of complimentary applications in Europe including a full web browser and the possibility to upload and order prints of your favorite pictures or print to a local printer with Bluetooth connection.

With the new phone, Nokia introduces Try&Buy concept in Europe and Africa region, allowing consumers and corporations to test a selection of new applications available in the standard sales package. Accessible via the removable 32MB multimedia memory card included in the sales package, all the new applications can be tried three times after which consumers can opt to purchase an application they wish to continue using. The applications can be purchased from retail outlets around Europe.

The applications offered are WorldMate, QuickWord, ZipMan and Wayfinder Mobile MapGuide, a map program that functions both manually and with a separately available GPS unit. It gives the phone owners a map and directions with voice instructions for a number of cities in Europe.

The Nokia 6600 devices in the standard sales package in Europe and Africa also allow access to CNNlive, a breaking news service with headlines, articles and photographs from around the world. The service is available for a free trial period of two weeks after which users have to subscribe on a monthly basis.

In addition to the Try and Buy applications on the memory card, the standard sales package in Europe and Africa includes three complimentary applications. With the full Opera HTML browser, now bundled for the very first time with a Series 60 phone, allows viewing web pages as on the desktop computer. Kodak Pictures application enables consumers to upload still pictures from the Nokia 6600 phone to the Kodak Pictures album on the Internet. Users can store pictures up to 5MB of storage at no cost on the online web album accessible with the Nokia 6600 or a compatible PC, from where they can conveniently order prints or share with family and friends. HP Print application enables a wide variety of content types, including photos, emails, contact lists, calendars and notes to be printed directly to a Bluetooth Basic Print Profile (BPP) enabled printer.
