Nokia 6263 - black (T-Mobile)
[ Music ]
>> Hi, I'm Ken Sherman, senior editor here at cnet.com.
Today we'll take a first look at the Nokia 6263. This
is a new phone for T-Mobile service. Although T-Mobile
doesn't have a 3G network yet, they have announced a
couple 3G phones. We assume they'll get it soon. Just
not exactly sure when. T-Mobile won't say officially.
But for the time being it is a 3G phone. Doesn't really
offer a lot of interesting design quirks or you know,
curves or anything like that. It's not unattractive, by
any means, just has a very standard, minimalist, but
very functional flip-phone design. I can see it has a
camera lens right here, a 1.2 mega pixel camera.
External display is pretty bright and colorful. Shows
photo color I.D., works as a view finder, all that kind
of stuff. So the phone does have a music player inside.
Of course you have to load music from a PC using a
cable. You can't really download music like you can on
other carriers. But the addition of these keys is a new
thing. Here on this side you have a micro SD slot,
while here on this side is a volume rocker and a
dedicated camera button. And then here on the top of
the phone you have room for a head set, a charger, and a
mini USB cable as well. Inside, you have a nice
internal display. Pretty bright and colorful, shows all
the stuff you need to know. Down here to the navigation
keys. These are also pretty standard. We've seen on
some Nokia phones have a square toggle with an Okay
button in the center. No Clear button, but that's
pretty standard for Nokia. Also, not a lot of dedicated
short cut buttons. You can set this toggle as a short
cut, but there's no dedicated speaker phone button or
anything like that. Key pad buttons, they are pretty
nice. They are separated, and they are slightly raised
above the surface of the phone just a tiny bit. But it
makes it pretty tactile and easy to use. The center row
felt a little wobbly, maybe a little cheapy [sic], but
not a big detail. Pretty good phone for texting and
dialing as well. I'm Ken Sherman, and this is the Nokia
