Nokia this week released a new candy-bar smartphone that packs many features that mobile workers and multimedia lovers may both like.

The Nokia 6220 classic is a quad-band GSM phone that's capable of using 3G networks for Internet browsing and e-mails. It has HSDPA connectivity, which provides customers with a top downlink speed of 3.6 Mbps. The phone is also capable of using EDGE data if a 3G network isn't available.

Mobile professionals will appreciate the phone's Microsoft Office applications, but the T9 input and lack of a QWERTY keyboard may not be appealing to some customers.

It features a 2.2-inch screen with a QVGA display capable of showing 16 million colors. It also has a built-in GPS receiver that can use cellular data for assisted GPS services.

There's a 5-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and auto-focus technology. There's also a Xenon flash, video recording up to 30 frames per second, and a secondary camera for video calls.

Nokia's phone is powered by Symbian 9.3, S60, and it packs 128 MB of user memory. This is expandable up to 8 GB via the microSD slot, and files can be transferred to a computer with the microUSB slot. It also has Bluetooth version 2.0, push-to-talk capability, and built-in hands-free features.

For multimedia, the 6220 classic has a music player capable of multiple codecs, as well as an integrated FM radio. The device also can play MPEG4 videos, and videos from the phone can be played on a television with an optional TV-out cable.

The handset measures 4.3 by 1.9 by 0.6 inches and weighs 3.2 ounces. The cell phone is available now in India for about $464, and Nokia has not announced if it will release the device in other markets.
