The Nokia 6260 is the first clamshell smartphone from Nokia. It uses the Series 60 user-interface and the Symbian operating system. The screen rotates on two axes allowing different modes of usage of both the camera and the phone itself, making it unique to other smartphones released at the same time as the Nokia 6260. Other unique features are a built in radio and the ability to 'hotswap' the memory card(RS-MMC) - that is to change it without turning the unit off.
The Nokia 6260 was specified to play MP3s, although the quality is poor (mono sound and no bass). This is not true of the radio quality as this uses a different chip to process the audio.
The processor found in the Nokia 6260 is capable of handling advanced software such as movie players and PC games of recent history such as Doom.
The phone features industry-standard Bluetooth and IrDA connectivity, along with Nokia's proprietary 'Pop-port' for USB and audio connections. The camera is only VGA resolution (640 x 480) but has reasonably good colour reproduction. The memory card slot can accept an RS-MMC card.
