Nokia 6700 Slide – A review

This mobile comes with all the latest features like 3G support,GPRS,browsing enabled,bluetooth,video call camera and support for even some java applications.
But the mobile does not have the features like virtual QWERTY,Touch screen,WLAN etc.
iOther attracting features of the mobile are it comes with various vibrant colors,5MP camera,video call enabled,card slot upto 16GB with 2GB included internally,detailed call records for maximum of 30 days.

If someone is in need of full business mobile then they can very well go with Nokia E63 as it has more features like WLAN,Wi-Fi etc and it is also cheaper than 6700.Only drawback with E63 is it not very much handy and the camera resolution is only around 2MP.
Mobile could cost from 11,000 to 12,000 in India.But E63 costs only around 9100-9600.
Other countries like Europe price would be around 236$ and price of E63 is 199$
