Along with other devices such as the 7700 that were recently shown in France, Nokia introduced a new full keyboard equipped 6800 series device, the 6820. While physically smaller than the original 6800, it packs quite a bit of new functionality inside - including a built-in camera and Bluetooth.

The new triband GSM handset is also EDGE data capable, for even quicker access to corporate email - including support for the popular BlackBerry email service. This is no simple feat, considering that the original 6800 was 22g heavier, 12mm longer, and a few mm wider and thicker.

We were hoping for a new 65k color display, but it looks like we will have to wait a while for that.

Some of the 6820's specifications:

  • GSM Triband (900/1800/1900Mhz) with EDGE data
  • Weight: 100g, Volume: 79cc
  • Length: 107mm x 47mm x 20mm
  • Battery Standby time: 240h, Talk time: 7h
  • 3.5MB internal shared memory
  • Bluetooth, irDA
  • 4096 color display, 128x128 resolution
  • Full QWERTY keyboard
  • 5-way navigation joystick
  • Built-in 352x288 resolution camera with video recording capability
  • Email client with support for BlackBerry email
  • MMS, long SMS capable
  • T9 predictive text input
  • Instant Messaging capable
  • xHTML browser
  • Java application support
  • Full PIM application set, PC or OTA sync capable
  • Voice dialing/commands/recorder
  • Speakerphone

The 6820 should hit the market in the first quarter of 2004.
