Nokia 3120 Classic
Nokia has announced its newest 3G handset, the 3120 Classic. This small candybar handset is based on the S40 user interface, and features an advanced music player and active standby screen. The 3120 Classic has a built-in 2 megapixel camera as well as a secondary front-facing VGA camera for video calling (where supported).
The 3120 Classic sports an integrated FM radio and a 2.5mm headphone port, as well as a microSD card slot and MP3 player. The 2.0" QVGA display is capable of rendering up to 16 million colors, and should make browsing the mobile web a pleasure. Connectivity comes via quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz) and dual-band WCDMA. It appears there will be three different versions of the 3120 Classic, with different WCDMA frequencies for Europe, North America, and Australia/South America.
Bluetooth 2.0 and a micro-USB port will make it easy to connect the 3120 Classic to other devices, and the Opera Mini web browser will come pre-installed for web browsing. It will be available in one of four color schemes: graphite, plum/powder white, deep red, and chestnut brown.
