Nokia Announces the 6760 Slide Messaging Phone
Updated: added details about the Surge
Today Nokia announced the 6760 Slide, a new phone that is targeted at those who use their phones primarily for messaging and to access social networking services. The 6760 Slide is a world variant of the recently announced Surge, a slider that has a full QWERTY keyboard. The biggest difference between the 6760 Slide and the Surge is that the 6760 Slide steps up the camera to 3.2 megapixels. Nokia says that the device comes with Ovi's messaging services on board, which will support push email and Google Talk and Windows Live Messenger IM services. It has quad-band GSM/EDGE and 900/2100 WCDMA/HSDPA radios, GPS, and a Flash-enabled web browser. The Surge runs S60 3rd Edition. It will be available in the third quarter for about $285.
