Nokia 6670 brings Bluetooth GPS support to smartphones
In a compact design and based on Symbian Series 60, the new tri-band Nokia 6670 offers document viewers for reading e-mail attachments, personal information management (PIM) features, web browser with support for PDF files, and faster data input with the Nokia Wireless Keyboard previously released. Users can also print their emails or images directly from the handset via Bluetooth wireless technology.

In addition to the high-resolution color display of 65,536 colors, and the 4x digital zoom for both pictures and video recording, the Nokia 6670 smartphone allows for quick and convenient capturing, printing, storing and sending of megapixel-quality (1152 X 864 pixels) images as well as video. The new photo editor application also enables enhancing the images instantly on the phone screen with crop, frame, autofix, and text-adding functionalities.

The phone is the first Series 60 product to support mobile antivirus software developed by F-Secure. Security can be further reinforced with the Nokia Mobile VPN (Virtual Private Network) Client and other security features, such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for web-based applications.

The Nokia 6670 smartphone is also compatible with the new Nokia Wireless GPS Module. Via Bluetooth wireless technology, the portable GPS receiver enables the use of a range of location-based applications and services, of which some offer turn-by-turn route guidance to a selected destination.

Weighing 118 grams and measuring 109 x 53 x 21 mm, the Nokia 6670 is expected to be available in early October 2004. The phone will come in two variants: GSM 900/1800/1900 for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asian markets, and GSM 850/1800/1900 for the Americas markets. Nokia expects to retail this model for approximately 500 euros.
