Nokia 6260 supports SMS, MMS and E-mail messaging. All of those are under one menu – Messaging. From there you can select to create a new message, after which you select the type of message you want (SMS, MMS, Email), select the recipients and type/insert the actual content. Text messages are limited to 160 characters, but the phone allows you to go over the limit in such case the text is sent as separate messages.

Nokia 6260 review


Even though we see more and more phones with 1 mega pixel and above, still the bulk of devices shipped today are featuring sub-mega pixel cameras. The 6260 offers regular 0.3 mega pixel or the so called VGA quality. For those who do not know, VGA cameras are capable of snapping shots at maximum of 640 x 480 pixels (640 multiplied by 480 gives 307, 200 what are the number of pixels in 640 x 480 photo. We divide 307,200 by 1000 to get the mega pixels, and we arrive at the 0.3 mark).
The 6260, like all other Nokia phones makes decent photos for its resolution.

I was expecting the 6260 picture quality to be similar to the other Nokia devices from the same class and equipped with the 0.3 mega pixel camera, but actually the pictures taken with 6260 are worse. The 7280 picture colors are visible better saturated and with better contrast. But please keep in mind that the 0.3 mega pixel camera have never been designed to replace your regular digital camera in any way.

6260 offers several shooting modes – Standard, Portrait (frames for close-ups), Night (more power is sent to the sensor) and Video mode. The pictures could be saved in the Phone's memory on the memory card. It takes about 7 second from the time I pressed the capture button, by the time I was able to snap another shot, which is about the average for this class of phones. The fastest way to activate the camera is to open the clamshell and then twisted so you hold the phone like camcorder. Then you can just press the dedicated Camera key and the picture is ready. Total elapsed time for this operation – about 2.5 seconds.
