Nokia 6260 review
Main screen


The 6260 runs the Symbian operating system with Series 60 user interface on top of it. Anyone who has every used the Series 60 interface will have almost zero learning curve. The speed of the UI (user interface) is what I have seen from all the Series 60 – adequate, but somewhat on the slow side. For the test period of about 2.5 weeks I did not experience any crashes or system instability.

The user can use Voice dialing to start applications and profiles, and to dial your contacts without looking at the screen. You first have to record a word, and then pronounce that voice command to open an application or dial a number.

Contacts

When reviewing a phone, I always pay extra attention to its phonebook. The 6260 features the standard for Series 60 phonebook setup – support for extended contact information like Company, Job Title, web address, multiple numbers per name (Telephone, Mobile, Fax, E-mail, Pagers). Support for user groups is not missing – so you can add all your friend to the Friends user group and you can assign one ringtone to that user group. When a member of the group calls, the pre-assigned ringtone will be played. For every contact you can upload a picture which is shows what that contact is calling. Voice Calling is also supported, which in my tests performed satisfactory.

The 6260 also supports Presence service. In a few words, Presence is a Network service (must be supported by your carrier) which allows you to set you current availability status. For example you can set you present to Busy and put message like “Client meeting” and your friend which also has Presence enabled phone will see your status and hopefully will not call just to say “What's up”.

The calendar offers weekly or monthly views with the ability to put scheduled meetings, memos and anniversaries. For every meeting you can input Subject, the location, start-stop time, start and end dates, setup an alarm and setup the repetitiveness of the meeting.

To-do lists are similar to the calendar meetings, but offer the option to set a priority. With Notes function the user can just write down ideas or quick notes.

Wallet is another useful application for storing your sensitive data. After creating your password, you can store your Ticket information, Credit card and personal notes.

Overall, just excellent implementation of all the PIM related functionality – just like Nokia has always done it.
