Walk On with the Nokia 6210 Navigator

Accelerate and Go!

Besides its primary purpose as both a cellular and navigation device, there are a few other bells and whistles added onto the 6210 Navigator. As mentioned, the accelerometer will be put to use for orientation purposes, and for those who are seeking some entertainment on the road, the bundled games within the 6210 Navigator also be take advantage of the accelerometer's motion sensor to enhance your gaming experience. However, for the connectivity buffs, you'll be dependant on its GPRS connection, or if you have a mobile data plan, HSDPA is the way to go.

Designed as a slider phone, the 6210 Navigator is less chunky than its previous iteration, but our main gripe was with the flat and flushed numeric keypad that prevented any fast and furious texting on the device.

And as mentioned in our First Looks article, the 6210 Navigator comes with a dedicated shortcut key that brings up the pre-loaded Nokia Maps 2.0 on it. To make its design snazzier, the shortcut key, which is essentially a star that's indicative of the stars as used by seafarers of ages past, flashes when Nokia Maps 2.0 is active.

The 6210 Navigator is thin and easy on the hands, with both the micro-USB2.0 connection and the microSD card slot located on the left profile, whilst the volume buttons and dedicated camera button is placed at the right profile.

For the interested navigators, the Nokia 6210 Navigator will be retail ready by the end of the July. To sweeten the deal, this navigation-cum-communication device will be introduced at a reasonable pricing of S$678, and with the competitiveness between the three telecommunications company in Singapore, we would be expecting a consumer-friendly pricing with a two-year plan.
