Connectivity

Nokia 6260 review
For external connectivity, the 6260 offers Bluetooth, Infrared and GPRS options. Pairing Bluetooth hands free was trouble-less. If you have IrDA or Bluetooth on your laptop you can use the 6260 as modem to dial or use its GRPS connectivity to go on the internet. The 6260 comes with a pre-loaded HP application for remote printing if you have Bluetooth enabled printer. The application allows you to select which pictures, messages, contact, calendar items or notes you want printer and after you select available printers.

The Web browser supports both xHTML and HTML website, but as you can image due to the screen size limitation, actual HTML viewing is not very recommended.

The phone also supports CHAT network service, which T-Mobile USA does not support so I could not test it. In a nutshell, it is supposed to be similar to lets say ICQ / AIM, where you register a username and when you login, you can chat with other registered users.

Another supported feature of 6260 is Push-to-Talk or PPT – a walkie-talkie like capability. Unfortunately, T-Mobile USA is not supporting it, so I could not test it also.

Entertainment and Media

Nokia 6260 review


For your music and video joy, the 6260 comes with embedded RealPlayer. It can play local media files stored in the phone's memory, on the memory card or streamed media files over the air. For the review purposes I transferred several MP3 files to the phone and the playback was very satisfactory. Other media files supported are .3gp, .aac, . amr, .mp3, .rm and .ram.

You can also listen to FM radio via the built-in loudspeaker or headset. In order to activate the radio functionality, you have to plug in the headset which serves the purpose of antenna. The auto tuning function searches for a station and when one if found the search stops and the channel is player. If you like it, you can use Save it (up to 19 saved channels are supported).

About gaming, Nokia has bundled the 6260 with three games – Bounce, CardDeck and Snake EX. The phone supports J2ME (JAVA) software installations, so if you get bored with the pre-loaded games, you can always add more.
