Review of GSM/UMTS smartphone Nokia 6210 Navigator

“The 6210 Navigator comes in a choice of two colors – black or red. Both are easy on the eye, but in fact they are very difference in terms of how you perceive them. That is, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the red edition targets primarily women, plus it seems a bit more practical.

But when it comes to hands-on experience, it gets smudgy and dirty in no time, picking up cheek and hands grease with ease.
