Nokia Announces Feature-Packed Clamshell
Jan 16, 2006, 3:13 AM by (staff)
Nokia today followed last week's release of Bluetooth enabled entry level clamshells with a more advanced model. The 6125 is a quad-band GSM/GPRS (EDGE) clamshell with sleek, simple styling. Considering it's not a 3G phone or smartphone, the phone packs a large number of media features. In addition to a 1.3 MP camera, the 6125 has an FM Radio, a media player that supports MP3, AAC, WMA and MP4, and will be one of the first feature phones to ship with Macromedia Flash player. The phone also features Bluetooth, Infrared, USB and a MicroSD slot to move media on and off the phone. It is due out in the second quarter.

Cingular or Tmobile
Personally, I am hoping T-Mobile will be getting this one (Nokia 6125), but I will be checking the unlock...
I've been looking for a phone exactly like this for use with T-Mobile service (from what I read and hear, Nokia seems to be the best brand to use on T-Mobile's network); this is why I am glad that Nokia has this phone. The only thing though, is that I do wish that Nokia put a flash with the camera.
I don't care much about the radio or the mp3 player since I use my phone for talking (Gee, go figure... ...lol) and I have an ipod; all I wanted in a GSM phone are these criteria:
1. Quadband GSM
2. camera w/flash (w/dedicated camera button)
3. Some type of hotswappable media card
4. compact flipfold design
To me this phone is almost perfect, but I guess could be considered perfect since phone-camera flashes...
i would get it
No EDGE, No DEAL
Interesting model #
Nice looking phone from this info so far though, I would buy it.
