Coming up with new and fun phones that targets to capture the hearts of consumers hasn't been the easiest of task for the folks at Nokia, but despite all the growing competitions around them, the Finnish company has been doing well so far. To truly whip up a model that suits the fickle consumer trend requires excellent understanding of users' demands. A bulk of this demand lies in multimedia capability and this bears a huge relation to Java support. While Java does open a vast world of entertainment possibilities, mobile phones supporting this language are generally limited by a paltry amount of on-board storage and this limitation severely restricts the amount of Java applications installable on any given phone of this genre. Nokia's solution to this memory problem is the 6230.
Though the phone appears to be a plain jane candy-bar phone on the outside, the 6230 has a unique capability older models don't possess. Located directly underneath the battery pack is a MMC (Multimedia Card) slot where a 32MB MMC card is included. With this memory slot, limitations that were once related to on-board memory would be a thing of the past. Add the 8.8MB onboard memory to the bundled 32MB MMC and a whopping 40.8MB storage capacity will immediately appeal to shutterbugs and polyphonic ringtone collectors. Still, the addition of this slot is just one of the many features that the 6230 has in beefing up its multimedia capabilities and overall functionalities, arguably making it one of the most feature packed candy-bar mobile phone around. Stick with us through the next few pages as we walk you through what's new and exciting about the 6230.
