Nokia's First EV-DO Phone Slips Out Of FCC

Article Comments  38  

Dec 2, 2005, 3:14 PM   by (staff)

The FCC today cleared Nokia's first handset entry into the EV-DO market. The 6305i is a slider-style phone with a 1.3 Megapixel camera, stereo speakers but does not appear to have advanced features like Bluetooth or even a memory card slot. Although the 6305i bears the Nokia logo it is made by SK Teletech - the first product of a manufacturing agreement announced in March. Further separating the 6305i from other Nokias, it will use Verizon's proprietary menus and interface instead of Nokia Series 40.

You must need your eyes checked. That has got to be one of the ugliest phones I have ever seen. At least since the bricks that were in the Nokia 300...
it looks like the phone fell in a cup of long island iced tea, or it's creators did. nokia should be pimp slapped in the face with their own logo for allowing this thing to wera their name

So what's the point of putting the Nokia brand name on the phone if it isn't made by Nokia and doesn't use the series 40 operating system? This isn't going to get people to buy Nokia phones. It doesn't look anything like their other phones. And if Nokia's strategy is to broaden their phone selection, they didn't make a good first impression because that phone is hideous. Hopefully SK will be able to produce an appealing design and better specifications next time.

not new to me.. ... »
I posted in the nokia forums back in AUG about this phone I had a nokia rep come by that had the 4 new Nokia phones coming to VZW this was the nicest outta the group.. I was told to expect the phone 01/06 and from what I was told it would have bluetooth and all the same advanced features like all current VCast phones what makes this one different is its supposed to have the music on demand feature that VZW is supposed to launch..

Not a good-looking phone

Its nice that the screen is so big an' all, but overall.. jus' not an attractive phone.

Interesting that Nokia is goin' wit' the Verizon UI. I hear they used to give carriers holy hell whenever they requested major carrier-specific touches like that. I guess they're no longer in a position to dictate to the carriers everythin' an' anything.
Ha Ha just accept it brah its easy ta dig' ya dig Laughing
alright girls your BOTH pretty.
we get the hint.
enough of this.
i know it's not a cool enough cell phone to start ranting and raving about. but rant and rave about something else.

ok but witch way is it going to slide?

That damn KX2 was only made for leftys.

hmm or will it slide down... ahh... anyone know?
i think its like the motorola v70 and its a swivel, not a slide. more like a swifter
If it's a slider, it slides up/down. How else would it slide? Confused

The Kyocera KX2 didn't slide - it swiveled. This new Nokia is definitely the slide type, not swivel.

Spoke with Nokia marketing employee

She came into the store and I was asking her about the phone. I showed it to here on phone-scoop and she was surprised that the picture is available already. She said that the front dial pad looks different and the screen is a little bigger than in the picture. She said that the picture does not do it justice. I like it anyway but it might be more appealing to everyone else when you see a better picture. I never post on here but it seems that nobody is happy with any phone that comes out. If people on here had their way every phone would look the same. Hopefully it will be out in 2Q 06.
Yah...i saw the phone too, its OKAY, i mean its not as bad looking as i think people are making it out to be. Wink

Nokia does not know how to make 1X-DO Chipsets

They need to buy these phones from companies that use Qualcomm chips
