Featuring what looks like a 2 megapixel camera and integrated flash, the 6290 looks to be the most expensive of Nokia’s new launch phones at a price of 325 Euros (about 428 dollars US).

There’s also three “Quick Cover” keys on the front flip which function as shortcut buttons for some of the new applications on the 6290 such as a “world travel application.”

The 6290 also supports multiple alarms, a feature not seen on any previous Nokia phone. (unless you count the calendar feature)

Other than that, there’s not much here except the obvious: the Nokia 6290 runs Symbian 3rd Edition.
