Excellent organizer and internet application

As you can see, Nokia 3250 is pretty similar to all other devices of the Series 60. The recent 9.1 version of the Symbian Operating System (OS) brings very few modifications. The calendar, the task organizer and the notes applications have not undergone any changes. Nokia 3250's equipment also includes a calculator, measure converter and a clock. Nokia 3250's alarm clock is not repeated. Unlike previous models of the same manufacturer, however, Nokia 3250 does not feature the standard Wallet function anymore.

Nokia opens Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) and internet HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and XHyperText Markup Language (HTML) pages using a browser of it own in several sequent models now. No change in Nokia 3250. No matter how simple the program pretends to be, it offers all basic browser options; for example, proper page display, support of simpler java scripts, and transferred data counter.


Built-in internet browser

Data are transferred through Bluetooth (built-in the phone) or through a Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable (enclosed in the delivery pack). Nokia 3250 supports Universal Serial Bus (USB) Mass Storage which makes transfers smooth and easy. The phone does not offer infrared port. In fact, it has been some time already since Nokia stopped implementing infrared port in its smartphones.

Options for internet connection

If you do not create do with closed space, create utilize of Nokia 3250's mobile data transfers backed up by General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) Class 10 and EDGE - also Class 10. Besides the handset itself, in the delivery pack you will also find an installation Compact Disk (CD) with a manual of Nokia 3250's features, as well as the Personal Computer (PC) Suite program, whose up-to-date version is available free on the Nokia website.

Nokia 3250's main, but still indirect competitor is Sony Ericsson W800 (read the following detailed review). The real fight will start once the expected Sony Ericsson W950 hits the market. Sony Ericsson maintains its leading position in terms of sound, reproduction quality, earphones quality, and music player options. What's more, W800's memory card has 4 times bigger power than the one of Nokia 3250, and its Memory Stick Pro Duo format is more extensive than Nokia's microSD.


I admit I am impressed by Nokia 3250's fine construction, by the excellent elaboration of its body, by its pretty colors and high-class keypad. The phone is extremely quick in Java and offers all advantages a Symbian Operating System (OS) can provide - an endless phonebook, brilliant time organizing functions, work with messages and emails etc. Nokia 3250 has one of the best cameras among same-resolution phones too.

If I was to decide whether to acquire myself Nokia 3250, I would not really mind the absence of infrared port, nor the missing capturing camera macro mode. The problem I see in Nokia's recent smartphone is the incompatibility of its programs with current Symbian applications. And what about waiting for a small while? It will not hold long before Nokia launches its recent N91 model. It will definitely be more expensive, but will also be full of brilliant music functions. The third option is the above mentioned Sony Ericsson W950.
