Nokia 6220 Classic - Why Not an Nseries phone?

Category: Unlimited, Author: admin, Popularity: 4% [?]

The Nokia 6220 Classic recently passed FCC approval, but this phone completely flew right by me. I did not know this phone had 5 megapixels, xenon flash, GPS, and the latest S60 version. It’s got some improvements over the Nokia N96, N78, and N82 so I’m confused why it’s not part of the Nseries?

The Nokia 6220 classic showed up on the FCC pages yesterday. Here are the documents for your viewing including the user manual.

  • FCC ID label
  • Internal photos
  • Test report
  • Manual

For taking pictures, I’ll assume that it will take just as good photos as the Nokia N82 which is part of the Nseries (hence the N letter) featuring the first Nokia with xenon flash. Check how much better the xenon flash on the Nokia N82 versus LED flash on the Nokia N95. The Nokia N96 doesn’t even have Xenon flash. The Nokia 6220 classic also even improves over the Nokia N82 by having built-in geotagging. If a GPS signal exists, all the photos taken by the Nokia 6220 will have its location embedded within the photo’s exif data.

For videos, the Nokia 6220 is capable of shooting VGA (640×480) at 30 frames per second, just like the Nokia N95, N93, N82, and other Nseries phones that I’ve used on my videoblogs.

The Nokia 6220 classic even sports a TV-out, something the Nokia N81 doesn’t have.

So why is the Nokia 6220 Classic not part of the Nseries? It’s got pretty good specifications on paper. Is it because it can’t connect to wifi? I think that’s the only important missing component on the phone.

Since the Nokia 6220 Classic just passed FCC aproval, it’s only a matter of time before we start seeing these in stores. It costs around 325 Euros before subsidies and taxes. Will people buy it? Did you know about this phone? This one definitely snuck through me.

    The Nokia 6220 classic is an attractive addition to the Nokia lineup, simply on the basis of so much eyebrow-raising smartphone functionality packed into such an unassuming body. The lack of Wi-Fi, which will scrub it off some buyers' shortlists, however, and that squeeky plastic casing with cheap-feel buttons does little to reflect the high quality nature of the features inside. I also hope Nokia updates the firmware soon to speed up its laid-back S60 user interface - its nicely presented, but a touch slow to respond.
