Nokia 7230 - Thoroughly


It has everything we are looking for in a simple mobile and the design that we would like to find in a sophisticated phone . It is the Nokia 7230 , a terminal that the Finnish has brought out to contrast with the new Nokia 6700 Slide , more expensive and complex than the current one. Even so, it keeps a colorful design and a generous 2.4-inch screen . Too bad the camera has been reduced to 3.2 megapixels and flash has been ruled out for another occasion . Rounder than usual, the Nokia 7230 comes with a 2GB internal memory , as always expandable with microSD cards .


Design and display

If there is something that stands out about this Nokia 7230 above its characteristics, it is the design . This time Nokia has opted for a phone with a youthful, round and colorful appearance . To this must be added a generous screen TFT 2.4 inch QVGA and 240 x 320 pixels resolution, in addition to 262,000 colors . Features normally present in mid-range phones like this one.

Responds to some measures 98 x 48 x 14.75 mm and only weighs 100 grams . Obviously we are facing a phone with a slide or sliding keyboard , tailor-made for those looking for a fun and functional design . That is why Nokia has created a model in hot pink for the more daring and another in graphite gray for those who want to maintain their composure.



Despite coming on the market as a simple and basic phone , this Nokia 7230 has a 3G connection , compatible with the 850/900/1900/2100 standards in GSM / EDGE / WCDMA / HSDPA . It has a built-in Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR connection to transfer data without cables. To this we must add the ability to connect via a miniUSB 2.0 port , both for access to the bottom of the memory of the phone to recharge the battery of the terminal.


The Nokia 7230 is a phone with basic multimedia capabilities. The terminal is capable of playing music, video and photos in JPEG, EXIF, MP3, WMA, WAV, ACC, MPEG4, H.263, 3GP, NB AMR, MIDI, eAAC, eAAC +, DRM 10 and OMA DRM formats, in addition to play our favorite radio station . You can record voice and play music through a more powerful built-in speaker .
