Excerpt: The 6600 Slide is a stunner; it's smooth and rounded edges will attract many admirers, and it boasts an impressive display. This is one of the sexiest slider phones we've seen in a while. What we like The 6600 Slide is impossible to ignore. The sliding mechanism feels reassuringly solid and we like how when the phone is shut and the screen is off, the 6600 Slide reverts to a completely black pebble-like object.
Excerpt: Nokia 6600 Slide is a spectacular slider phone, designed for the female audience. The mobile device of this type has a high intellect with a stylish and fashionable appearance. Nokia 6600 Slide is slider of a small size, created from very high quality alloy. From the first look you will feel that Nokia 6600 Slide is an expensive phone. This feeling is deceptive, because the cost of this device is very democratic.
Excerpt: Nokia 6600 launched in April last year received a facelift, even though the handset is no older than one year. The new device is called Nokia 6600i slide and features just about the same technical specifications, as well as design. Still, the few differences between the two might tip the balance in 6600i's favor, as it has a longer battery standby time, Flash Lite 3.0 support and a better 5 Megapixel built-in camera.
Summary: The 6600 Slide's 64-tone ring tones sounded pretty loud in most environments, although since its only loudspeaker is mounted on the back, you will probably miss a call or two if you decide to keep the phone in your jeans' pocket. The vibro alert, on the contrary, is nothing to complain about.
Those of you who were about to just skip this paragraph are actually missing out some important things about the 6600 Slide's reception quality.
Conclusion: The built-in 3.2-megapixel camera captures high-quality photos and videos that can be shared with others via Internet services or multimedia message - directly from the photo menu. The large 2.2-inch QVGA display offers 16 million colors. Making it easy to find the way around town, the 6600 Slide comes integrated with the Nokia Maps application.
Conclusion: Nokia are releasing a new and updated version of its previous Nokia 6600 Slide. To look at the new Nokia 6600i you may struggle to see any changes from the original Nokia 6600, you need to look under the hood to find the impressive upgrades which have been made to the imaging facilities on the 6600i.
Summary: Like the 6600 Fold, the Slide is a stylish handset that doesn't necessarily offer a wealth of features but does the basics well. At the end of the day the choice will depend on what form factor you prefer.
Pros: Design, build quality, 3G-capable, included microSD card
Cons: Fingerprint magnet, Series 40 interface a little slow, bottom row of keypad close to edge, microSD card location
Excerpt: There's so much fuss made over super-new, giant smartphones. But many mere mortals don't know what their features actually do, let alone how to use them. Whilesome techies use phones to run their life and entertain them (oh, and occasionally make phone calls, too), many people still want a normal phone that acts like a phone first and foremost.
Excerpt: A phone that's just a phone rather than a "multimedia computer". Now that is likely to be music to some readers ears. But is the promise of simplicity and ease of use really there? We get dialling with the Nokia 6600 slide to find out. Like previous models from Nokia in the past, the Nokia 6600 slide is the half brother/sister to the Nokia 6600 fold, and while they share the same name they are actually very different handsets - well sort of.
Pros: Small, easy to use, long battery life, 3G
Cons: Lacks any features of a high-end phone, just lets you make phone calls
