For the savvy global business person Nokia has improved upon its 9500 communicator with the announcement of the arrival early 2005 of the new Nokia 9300. With a full range of communication features the new hand-held is designed to address important business functions from one device. On first glance it’s a stylish, albeit large, mobile phone that opens up to provide full PDA functionality with wireless connectivity.
Measuring 132mm x 51mm x 21mm and weighing in at 167g the 9300 lacks the ubiquitous camera and FM radio features of popular models today. However, the 9300 addresses serious business needs with a host of communications functions to provide office applications for creating and editing documents, email, information management and PC synchronisation via Bluetooth or IR. Data exchange with other mobile devices is also made easy.
It features one-touch access to personal information and office applications through eight dedicated function buttons on the device's integrated keyboard. A five-way joystick allows users to navigate menus to find the functions they need to quickly accomplish tasks and find information. It also supports five party conference calling via an integrated speakerphone. The Nokia 9300 has 80 MB (expandable up to 2 GB with an optional MMC card) of free user memory - for storing emails, documents, presentations, text and multimedia messages, ring tones, data files, calendar notes and "to-do" lists or downloading applications for work or play.
