New Nokia 6260 mobile slides into view

The former wood-pulp millers have just made public their latest handset, the 6260 Slide. Which is an addition to their other 6260 from 2004.

Although not really drawn as update as such on the previous series, it does still share the same model number. Only now the word Slide is has been added, almost as a suffix at the end.

The original model in case you were at all interested was of a clam shell design, and if you weren’t, it’s too late now.

They’ve tagged this one for marketing purposes as being ‘made for high speed sharing’, whatever that means.

We assume, and we’re sure there’s something about making the ‘ass’ out of ‘u’ and ‘me’ in there, it’s geared towards sharing photographs and videos via social networking sites out there.

Running from the Series 40 OS it’s capable of HSDPA and even has WIFI onboard, with images to be captured for its 5MP Carl Zeiss camera lens with flash.

There’s also GPS and Nokia Maps pre-installed, amongst other wonders accompanying the phone such as the navi-key functions for guiding your way around the OS.

It’s due to hit the shops early next year, with a price tag of 299 Euros. We’ve asked about possible networks carrying it, but none have been made public yet. Boo!
