The Good Excellent sound quality. Symbian OS now almost lag free. Spring loaded slide is hours of mindless fun. Sharp, bright screen. 3G and HSDPA. GPS satellite navigation is convenient to have around.
The Bad ... but interface and screen is difficult to use in car. Car mounting kit is extra. Text-to-speech message reading is unintentionally funny. No wireless or infrared. Photos are ordinary, even for a mobile. Shiny plastic body creaks and smudges easily.
The Bottom Line A good 3G slide phone with an excellent screen and sound quality. It feels a little cheap in places, though, and its GPS navigation is highly compromised.
Nokia 6110 Navigator
Editors' note: after we'd finished reviewing the 6110 we discovered a AU$50 hole in our pockets. In our eagerness to test this phone we'd unwittingly enabled its assisted GPS feature, which requires access to the Internet to work.to find what assisted GPS is, whether it's any good and how to turn it on or off.
In case you've missed the barrage of TV, Internet and bus advertising, the AU$759 6110 Navigator is Nokia's new hero phone. With every phone wielding a camera like a hungry paparazzo, this new Nokia launches itself into the mobile phone fray with the next must-have item: GPS.
It's a pretty sleek looking device, the 6110, with its shiny jet-black body and splashings of metal-look trim -- it also comes in a rather less pleasing white, which is conspicuously absent in all of Nokia's advertising material. To touch, though, the Nokia is a bit of a mixed bag. We could imagine Homer Simpson playing with its Samsung-esque spring-loaded slide mechanism all day -- "slide goes up, slide goes down, slide goes up, slide goes down," he'd say. Yet the 101mm by 49mm by 20mm plastic body is creaky and smudge prone -- especially the screen, which is used to open and close the phone. The keypad buttons have a rather cheap feel to them and initially, it's hard to tell whether you've pressed a key.
