Summary: If you don't want a separate satnav and mobile phone, a handset with mapping software could be an ideal alternative. The Nokia 6210 Navigator has an integrated GPS module, accelerometer and compass that work alongside the preloaded Nokia Maps.
Excerpt: Nokia 6210 Navigator Smartphone was first shown to the public in February 2008 at the MWC 2008 exhibition. The slider is available in red and black colors. Its dimensions are 49x103x15 mm, weight is 117 g. Nokia 6210 Navigator runs on the GSM 900/1800/1900 and 3G (UMTS), has Wi-Fi support. All other communications and Internet functions are present: microUSB, Bluetooth 2.0 (A2DP), GPRS, EDGE, HTML, WAP, e-mail client (IMAP4/POP3/SMTP), HSDPA (3,6 Mbit / s).
Excerpt: Nokia’s first navigation-heavy offering was the 6110 Navigator (smartphone as a matter of fact). The maker was literally jamming it through, to the extent when they had to bundle not Nokia Maps for navigation but Route 66 software. However these two were pretty much in one league functionality-wise, plus the end-user couldn’t tell the difference when it come to purchasing the license.
Excerpt: GPS is slowly becoming a very common feature in most of the higher end handsets. Nokia’s 6110 Navigator performed quite well and now its upgrade, the 6120 Navigator, is on 'trial'. Let's see how it fares compared to its predecessor. Form Factor Fans of the Navigator will be happy to see the 6210 has the same slider form factor as the 6110. But it's a whole lot sleeker.
Summary: We were expecting big things from the 6210 Navigator, but the fact that turn-by-turn navigation is only free for six months is a huge disappointment. We can’t see the point of this handset when most handsets in Nokia’s new range offer GPS and Nokia Maps.
Pros: Slimmer and lighter than predecessor, well laid out controls, Nokia Maps 2.0, HSDPA
Cons: Turn-by-turn navigation only free for six months, questionable build quality, Navigator concept lost, no cradle/window mount included
Summary: Powerful sat nav and plentiful features add up to an attractive smartphone
Pros: A-GPS sat nav built in, 1GB MicroSD card with maps supplied, 3.2-megapixel camera, HSDPA connectivity, Symbian S60 smartphone functionality, MicroSD card slot in the side, FM radio, Good web-based applications, Solid sliderphone design
Cons: Quite heavy in pocket, No Wi-Fi, 2.5mm headphone jack socket rather than 3.5mm one, LED rather than xenon flash for the camera, No lens cover for camera
