Nokia 6600i: Sleek S40 Slide Coming in Q3

Nokia 6600i: Another S40 with a 5 meg camera.

Nokia 6600i: Another S40 with a 5 meg camera.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but the 6600i is the second S40 phone armed with a 5-megapixel camera (no Carl Zeiss, though). The first was the 6260 Slide, a phone that looks and feels strangely similar. And you might be better off with the 6260 Slide, because the 6600i’s a slight downgrade from there. At least the 6600i clocks in at a 100 euros cheaper.

The predecessor of the 6600i is the 6600 Slide, a pretty lackluster slider in itself. The steel covers are still there, along with the ability to tap your way to victory, if by victory you mean silencing calls, snoozing alarms, or activating the display. Ditto with the pre-installed Nokia Maps but-no-GPS and 2.2″ display. Sadly, the same BL-4U 1000 mAh lithium-ion battery also made its way to the next version, which means roughly 4 hours of talk time.

What’s new is the 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and autofocus, 3G, and Bluetooth 2.0. Besides that, there really isn’t a whole lot here – the 6600i is a pure mid-range phone.

Expect the 6600i in the third quarter of this year, for an estimated retail price of 200 euros ($279 USD).
