Nokia Cell Phone Comes With E-Mail, XHTML Browser

T-Mobile is now offering the Nokia 6263, which can store up to 350 songs on a 512 MB memory card that's included with the phone.

T-Mobile on Tuesday began offering the Nokia 6263, a classic clamshell cell phone with enhancements, such as e-mail capability and a XHTML browser.

The Nokia 6263 is not a costly multimedia device like the ones recently launched by Nokia as part of its Nseries, but it does fulfill most basic functions required by mobile users.

For example, the phone is capable of receiving e-mail with attachments and it can be used for Internet browsing via a built-in XHTML browser. It also supports Java and Flash Lite, and can be synched to a desktop through Nokia's PC Suite software, available as a free download.

"Many customers are looking to own a device that offers the latest conveniences, and want all of those features in a stylish -- but classically-styled -- phone. The Nokia 6263 is designed expressly for those people," said Frank Vium, Nokia's vice president of sales, in a statement.

While T-Mobile is still in the process of building out its third-generation cellular network, known as HSDPA, the Nokia 6263 is capable of supporting it. It also uses quad-band GSM/EDGE on the carrier's existing network, which is much slower than HSDPA.

Additional features include a 1.3-megapixel camera with video recorder, music player, FM radio, and stereo Bluetooth. The Nokia 6263 can store up to 350 songs on a 512 MB memory card that's included with the phone. That could be expanded to 3,000 songs with an optional 4 GB card.

The phone offers about 3 hours of talk time or over 11 days of standby time.

The phone is available immediately online and at select T-Mobile retail stores, according to the companies, but pricing isn't yet available. Similar mid-range models, such as the Nokia 6103 and Nokia 6133, are being offered by T-Mobile for under $150 (some less with special offers).
