Nokia 6500 Classic Phone

June 2, 2007 in Nokia Phone News

The counterpart to the Nokia 6500 Slide, the Classic version offers an even thinner profile (9.5 mm!) and a cheaper price tag at the expense of features.

Looking suspiciously like an iPod mini, the 6500 Classic brings another thin device to the Nokia 2007 lineup. Note a couple of not-so-subtle differences from the 6500 Slide model – a 2 megapixel camera, smaller capacity battery, microUSB port, and questionable expandable memory.

It’s also lighter, thinner, and smaller than the Slide. As we see it, different strokes for different folks.

The microUSB port is a nice touch and lets you charge, transfer files, and play music with the same type of cable. A huge improvement over phones littered with Pop-ports, charging plugs, and of course the 2.5/3.5mm audio jacks on certain Nokia phone models.
