More Pictures And Technical Specification

Clad in a Tin Grey Xpress-on cover brings about a decent level of class to the 6230. However, the color contrast between the two tones of silver and light grey is too faint and this makes the phone appears somewhat bland. But being a Nokia candy-bar phone through and through, a variety of colorful and eye-catching Xpress-on covers should help spice up the phone's appearance effortlessly.

It's not hard to find similarities between the 6230 and its 6220 predecessor. After all, only so much can be made to the appearance and layout of this straightforward candy-bar design. Screen size and general feel of the 6230 aren't all that different from the likes of 6220. Of course, having a new model stepping means there's more to it than just a different fascia, Nokia has been known to inject new features into new models, but before we get you up to speed on what's new, we'll get you acquainted with the 6230's technical specification and a few pictures.
