Nokia 6220 Classic: 5-megapixels for lost, travelling bloggers

Nokia has announced the 6220 Classic -- a GPS-enabled 5-megapixel phone capable of geotagging and outputting content to a TV

Up next on Planet Nokia is the 6220 Classic -- a 5-megapixel handset that comes with not only a Carl Zeiss lens, but a Xenon flash, too. Double-plus happy times indeed.

But it's not finished being impressive yet -- the 6220 will upload your geotagged photos to the Web over a fat and juicy HSDPA connection and GPS, the latter of which will also help you out when you're lost, thanks to Nokia's new Maps 2.0 software.

There's also an integrated TV-Out feature for those of you looking to look at things you've previously looked at, on a TV, should the 56mm (2.2-inch) screen not suffice.

Other features include up to 8GB of internal memory, an FM radio, Web functionality and something Nokia calls 'Adaptive Multi Rate' -- a "wideband speech-coding technology, giving a more natural sound to human voice in phone calls". That's the killer feature, right there.

This blogger phone should go on sale in the third quarter of this year for about £240. -Nate Lanxon
