During all the hoo har of Mobile World Congress, two phones that somewhat slipped under the radar were two devices unveiled by Nokia. Which is ironic as both the Nokia 6710 Navigator and Nokia 6720 classic are both geared towards navigation. Both handsets are almost identically specced, with the major difference being that the 6710 Navigator sports a slider format, whereas the 6720 classic is a candybar.
Both handsets provide a real time ‘drive and walk' navigation, with regular weather, traffic and safety updates. Both feature full voice guidance meaning you are free to keep your eyes on the road, while Nokia has been kind enough to include the Nokia CR-111 car holder with the 6710 Navigator to cradle the device. It goes without saying that Nokia Maps is onboard and with the recent integration of Maps on Ovi, users can pre-plan their journey at home on their PC, before synchronizing with their device. Other features include a five-megapixel camera, complete with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash, while the Nokia 6710 Navigator also has built-in Wi-Fi.
Nokia expect the 6720 classic to begin shipping in Q2 2009 for around £215, with the Nokia 6710 Navigator following in Q3 with an estimated retail price of £264.
