Nokia 2630

Introduction

The Nokia 2630 was introduced in May 2007 with the purpose of providing a thin, entry- level phone that was both useful and affordable. By including a camera, an FM radio, a 2.5 mm headphone jack, and making this phone thin, sleek, and small, Nokia introduced a phone that many users would be attracted to. However, the lack of 3G capabilities and the fact that the phone has no dedicated volume key makes it occasionally frustrating.

Physical Aspect

The phone’s dimensions are 105 x 45 x 9.9 mm; the thinnest of any other Nokia phones at the time of its production. With a weight of 66 grams, this phone is incredibly lightweight and feels comfortable and solid when holding it. The display is 4.6 cm with 128 x 160 pixel resolution and support for 65K colours. It comes in one colour: black.

The keyboard is a standard three letters and a number to a key design with a four directional pad and soft keys to navigate the menu. Some may complain about the top row of the numeric keys being flush with the command keys directly above it, forcing some to accidentally press the wrong key when attempting to message or navigate the phone quickly.

The Nokia 2630 possesses a VGA camera that records images in 640 x 480 pixels. It can further record video in 128 x 96 pixels. The low resolution of the images and lack of flash can lead to some dissatisfaction with this feature, but the inclusion of the camera in an entry- level phone make it a feature worth mentioning.

The low resolution of the images and lack of flash can lead to some dissatisfaction with this feature, but the inclusion of the camera in an entry- level phone make it a feature worth mentioning.

Major Functions

The call quality and menu navigation are fine and about average for what one expects from a phone in this price range. However, this phone lacks a dedicated button that adjusts the volume of an audio call. This can be frustrating when constantly moving from different levels of ambient noise during a phone call.

The battery features an impressive six hours of talk time and can be held on standby for up to 310 hours. This mobile phone supports SMS, MMS, E-mail, and Instant Messaging, allowing you to stay connected wherever you happen to be.

Multimedia

Although there are no MP3 or video viewing capabilities on this phone, the inclusion of the FM radio makes jamming out to music a distinct phone feature. Further, although the Nokia 2630 does not contain any built- in games, they are available for download over the networks with which it is linked. As always, the standard set of T9 predictive text, an organizer, and voice memo are included with this Nokia phone.

This phone features Class 6 EDGE capabilities with a WAP browser to surf the internet and Bluetooth v 2.0 for its file sharing needs. However, its lack of WLAN or 3G capabilities show that this phone is primarily not meant to work on the internet but instead to focus mainly as a mobile phone instead of a mobile media device.

User Interface

The phone has 11 MB of internal memory that allows for a large catalogue of MP3 ringtones and a 1000- entry address book. The OS is easy to navigate using the four- directional pad, quickly becoming intuitive to any user who uses this phone.

Conclusion

Overall, this phone does exactly what it sets out to do. It combines a lightweight, sleek design with Nokia’s standard user- friendliness and entry- level applications at an affordable price. Users will appreciate the inclusion of a camera, E-mail capabilities, the FM radio, and Bluetooth. However, the sometimes awkward design of the keyboard and the lack of a dedicated volume button make the interface occasionally frustrating. However, the benefits far outweigh the flaws and many users will be very satisfied by the Nokia 2630.
