Excerpt: The Nokia 7230 is a low to mid-range mobile handset, with just the basic features. It is intended to target first-time or young users, easing them into the complexities of a handset. The 7230 will win no prizes for originality, design or features, but...
Summary: Nokia has quite the range of mobile handsets, catering to mostly all the user demographics. The Nokia 7230 handset is especially designed to be a low-budget phone with the bare modicum of features to run the handset efficiently. The Nokia 7230 is not a shabby handset by any means, whether in the appearance or features department. It is merely a pared down version so that it becomes a viable option to people who do not want to spend a great deal of money.
Cons: Small, Well made keyboard, Good battery life, 3.5mm top mounted headset jack
Conclusion: The Nokia 7230 is a mixed bag. While it provides a reasonably priced means of getting internet on the go, bundles in a camera, 3.5mm headphone jack, 2GB of memory for your music and a slim design, all these are unrefined positives. We would recommend the Nokia 7230 to someone looking for handset with a decent feature-set on a limited budget who could overlook its flaws.
Pros: Included 2GB memory card, User friendly interface, Quick email setup, 3.5mm headphone jack
Cons: Plasticy build quality, No Auto Focus, Viewing angles leave a lot to be desired, Music playback is flat and tinny
Conclusion: If it's a basic yet sturdy handset you're after then you could do a lot worse than the Nokia 7230; like all basic Nokias before it, it excels at calling, texting and generally being easy to get to grips with. But for anything more complex, the 7230 is not your best bet; although it can handle things like social networking, internet browsing, internet and media playback, it does so inelegantly, at low speeds and on a relatively small screen.
Excerpt: Nokia 7230 is one of those handsets targeting the emerging market, which means it was especially designed as a cheap communication solution. The slider is one of the few handsets that have been destined to run Nokia Life Tools application, depending on the location, of course. What is really worth mentioning about this phone is the fact that it features 3G technology, even though the phone is offered as a mid-budget handset.
Pros: The phone's best features include 3G connectivity, low price, nice design, 2 GB microSD card included, Nokia Life Tools application, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP support. I would've liked to see an GPS built-in receiver and maybe a videocall option, but these features would've probably raised the phone's price.
Cons: Even though it's a cheap phone, I see no reason why Nokia included a 3.2-megapixel camera, which shoots like a 1.3-megapixel camera. Other negative points are the low autonomy battery, the mediocre music player, as well as the lack of a LED flash and the browser's inability to load rich graphics pages.

Excerpt: In March 2010 a new slider Nokia 7230 appeared on store shelves. Nokia phones are distinguished with classical, and to some extent, even conservative design. And, despite the fact that the manufacturer provides a whole range of sliders of different price categories, among which there are also quite inexpensive and lovely female models of different colors, we may say that Nokia has created a slider that does not have prototypes in the market according to...
Summary: Though entirely different phones, Corby and its competitior Nokia 7230 share the same market space. It will be a tough call picking one over the other says Indiaserver. While Corby's touchscreen functionality is nothing short of impressive, Nokia 7230 doesn't do poorly either packing in a amazing camera, better 3G connectivity, and well recieved Nokia Series 40 user interface.
Summary: Nokia has announced its latest device Nokia 7230 in the Indian market. A slider phone with 3G feature, the Nokia 7230 is offered at an amazing budget price of about Rs 6,000 in India. It's hard to believe that it's true. The Finnish phone maker has introduced a truly affordable 3G handset for the India market that too with decent set of specifications. In the Indian market, nothing matters more than the pricing of a device.
