The seductive Nokia 6600 slide looks like a polished pebble and feels reassuringly heavy. Although its a small phone it has a relatively large screen that displays text messages and pictures well. A few blue details, such as the blue navigation key, add a little flare to the already stylish phone. Slide open the smooth mechanism and out pops a small but welldesigned keypad. Its not the best we have ever used but its good enough to write text messages on comfortably. Slide the phone shut and it will fit very easily in a handbag or stuffed in a pocket something you cant say for many phones.
If you are looking for a phone that can do everything, stay away but if you want something that does the basics well, this could be it. Calling and tasting are straightforward and Nokia S40 interface is easy to understand, especially if you have used a Nokia phone before. Builtin 3G means you can browse the Web at high speeds. The 6600 slide comes with Opera Mini preinstalled, which lets you look at full Web pages in a similar way to the i Phones browser. You can also use 3G to make video calls, but who are we kidding has anyone made a video call since the service came out? A 3.2megapixel camera on the back will satisfy your basic MMS and Face book photography needs, and we were surprised to see how well it performed in low light. While the dual LED photo lights are not as illuminating as a Xenon flash, they did pump out more light than we expected, making night shots turn out fairly well. A useful and unexpected feature is Nokia Maps, which comes preinstalled and allows you search for directions. The 6600 does not come with GPS so you cant pinpoint your location without using an external Bluetooth GPS receiver, but we still found Nokia Maps to be useful without it.
