Nokia 3200 (AT&T)

The Good Extensive personalization options; instant messaging; built-in speakerphone; FM radio; decent battery life; IR port; EDGE network compatibility.

The Bad Plastic casing is somewhat flimsy; confusing keypad layout; unintuitive multimedia messaging; CIF camera offers only basic features; only 1MB of shared memory.

The Bottom Line Though it comes with some nice features, the Nokia 3200's dare-to-be-different design will not appeal to everyone.

Nokia 3200 (AT&T)

Review summary

With its 3200, Nokia may be the first company to successfully combine a cell phone and a coloring book. An individualist's dream, this striking mobile for AT&T Wireless and Cingular service can be inexpensively personalized through its paper covers and a little imagination. Teens will especially appreciate the phone's integrated camera and such offbeat features as a flashlight and an FM radio. But with a $219 price tag (without service), it isn't exactly in a kid's price range; those on a more limited budget who can do without the camera should check out the company's 3100 model. Slender and slightly tapered at its bottom, the candy bar-style 3200 is marginally bigger and heavier (4.2 by 1.8 by 0.8 inches; 3.1 ounces) than its closet predecessor, the Nokia 3100. But any similarities between it and other handsets stop there, as the 3200 takes customization to a new level. After removing the clear plastic casing, you can insert colorful paper covers for both the front and back of the phone for a truly personalized look. The mobile comes with three prefabricated covers as well as few blank slates that can be designed to one's pleasing. Run out of those? No problem--grab some paper, scissors, and colored pens, then use your imagination for the rest.
