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.
Summary: In this day and age aesthetics are as important, if not more so, than the inner-workings. It is clear Nokia has put the look of the Nokia 6600 Slide and the Fold high up on its agenda, as both are stylish, elegant handsets. As we've already looked at the Nokia 6600 Fold, a flip phone that may be simple in design but far from simplistic in terms of features, it is only fair we take a look at its less powerful sibling, the 6600 Slide.
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
Conclusion: Size, we know, isn’t everything, but if you fancy something small enough to disappear in your pocket rather than weigh you down, the Nokia 6600 Slide is a great balance of form and function. Sure, the camera isn’t outstanding and there’s limited built-in memory here, so you won’t be choosing this phone if you need an outstanding snapper or a phone to carry all your tunes. But as classy, sleek, dressy phones go, this is pretty hard to beat.
