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.

The 9300 features a QWERTY keyboard and a 640 x 200 pixel 65K colour TFT screen that allows browsing full HTML websites with support for HTML 4.01 and JavaScript 1.3. With tri-mode the 9300 supports GSM/GPRS and EDGE networks and has fast class 10 GPRS that makes it particularly adept at handling email. It also supports IMAP4, POP3, SMTP, SyncML and BlackBerry Connect e-mail clients (with attachments), allowing users to get encrypted secure email straight to their device. There are also built-in office applications available that support popular document formats such as spreadsheets, presentations, and PDF files. Security features include SSL/TLS and IPsec VPN for secure mobile access to corporate information. The 9300 is equipped with personal firewall and anti virus software.

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.
