Last week saw Nokia announce the ‘Surge’ for the American markets, this week they have spruced up the Surge and unveiled it under the name Nokia 6760. It features the same design of its US sibling that many hated (I didn’t) but comes with a 3.2 MP camera instead of the 2MP and also features a slightly longer standby and talk time.
- S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2
- 3.84 x 2.28 x 0.61 inches, 4.38 ounces
- 2.4-inch QVGA display
- 3.2 megapixel camera
- 8GB of storage with microSD (it comes with a 2GB card)
- 5 hour talk time, 500 hours standby – 1500 mAh battery
- Nokia Messaging comes as standard
- Google Talk and Windows Live Instant Messaging services are also supported
- Will be available during the third quarter of 2009 for €199 before subsidies and taxes
- Initially available in black, red and white variants are expected later in the year for some countries.
Nokia doesn’t seem to have published a full spec sheet yet, so I am not sure if it retains the 2.5mm jack from the Surge, I sure hope not. Its still the same 2.5 mm jack.
The keyboard on that things looks really nice and at €199 Nokia sure seems to have hit a sweet spot, add to that a very good battery and could might just be looking at your spare handset. It should also make for a good entry level S60, if you can get over the 2.5mm jack. Check out the full specifications here.
The Nokia Conversations post mentions a Europe release, but I think it will be hitting India and other markets in Asia as well around the same time.
[UPDATE] – The Nokia 6760 Spec sheet mentions:
- Opera 8 as the browser. Opera 8? That has surely got to be a mistake? (via: Stefan)
