The Nokia 6170 will be available to buy across Asia and Europe from today. The sleek and sexy flip-phone is seen as Nokia’s best rival to the Motorola Razr V3.
The stylish folding camera phone has a stainless steel finish, and will be available in two versions: a GSM 900/1800/1900 primarily for the European and Asian markets, and a GSM 850/1800/1900 primarily for the Americas. The phone asynchronies calendar and contacts of with your computer and the EDGE support means users can have fast and easy access to the Web and to their e-mail when they are away from the home or the office.
“There are a lot of demands on people today, especially in striking the right balance between personal and work life. The objective of the Nokia 6170 camera phone is to offer busy people a tool to get the most out of life,” explains Aage Snorgaard, Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia. “The introduction of this product also responds to customers who value Nokia´s distinctive, intuitive user interface and functionality in a stylish ´clamshell´ design.”
