NOKIA MURAL 3G CLAMSHELL CHEAP MUSIC PHONE A GPS

By • Sep 4th, 2009 • Category: ! Daily Info & Reviews, Mobile Phone
It looks like Nokia hasn’t forgotten the low-end phones, despite being a little preoccupied. Another Nokia announcement was made today – the AT&T exclusive Nokia Mural. It’s a music oriented clamshell with dedicated media keys, 3G connectivity, illuminated colorful front cover and an imminent release. Which is a good thing for all those families looking for a cheap new phone . While there’s nothing wrong with a simple flip-phone, this thing looks a bit dated, and also resembles a few of the late Motorola W-series models. But, we’re sure that doesn’t matter to the general consensus. After all, it’s a phone, it functions perfectly well enough.

Nokia Mural will be AT&T exclusive clamshell and features a 2.2-inch QVGA internal screen, an 1.36-inch external one, a 2 megapixel camera, 3G support, Bluetooth, 70 MB storage, standard 2.5mm audio jack and a microSD card slot. The dedicated music keys are just below the small external screen.
 
Nokia Mural is powered by the latest S40 6th edition and comes with A-GPS option, which uses cell-ID triangulation instead of real satellite positioning.
 
The Mural will come in gunmetal color with customizable cover illumination – blue, red, green, orange, pink and purple. It will be available on 6 September for 50 US dollars with a 2-year contract with AT&T.
 
 
The Mural is a 3G-enabled device, so that’s something. And just like everyone else, Nokia is touting the phone’s social media abilities, including multimedia messages (MMS). There’s a built-in IM client, and the Mural will even provide an email portal. The inside screen is a 2.2-inch QVGA, there’s a 2-megapixel camera on back, and the phone’s memory can be expanded to 16GB. Nokia is boasting four hours of talk time. And, just in case you like listening to music but don’t want to open the device up, there’s some nice music playback keys right on the front.
 
Whether you think carrier-branded software is a good thing or bad thing, could probably sway your decision on this one. There’s a plethora of AT&T’s services on the Mural, like AT&T Mobile Music, AT&T Navigator, and AT&T Video Share. The Mural will be available on and after September 6 at select retail stores, as well as AT&T’s website. It will be going for $49.99 after a $50 main-in rebate
 
Nokia Mural fold phone
 
“Nokia’s latest fold mobile phone is an exciting addition to our 3G line-up,” said Michael Woodward, Vice President, Mobile Phone Portfolio, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “With its unique personalization through customizable color lights, this new Nokia phone will certainly stand out for stylish consumers.”
 
  Nokia Mural features
 
Suitable for social networking, the Nokia Mural’s HSDPA 3G connectivity enables fast downloads and multimedia messaging, and with built-in IM, e-mail and a large keypad, staying in touch with friends is easier than ever. With a 2.2” QVGA screen, a 2 megapixel digital camera and up to 16 GB of expandable memory, Nokia Mural phone has the capacity for storing even the heftiest entertainment loads for your leisure time. Sleek external music keys mean you don’t need to open the Nokia cell phone to enjoy your tunes. And with up to four hours of talk time on 3G, it supports the liveliest of communications.
 
Nokia Mural with illuminating phone cover
 
The elegant curves of Nokia Mural make for a truly ergonomic design that’s smooth and curved to fit comfortably in your hand. An array of illuminating cover colors – in choices of blue, red, green, orange, purple and pink – light up when the device is opened or closed or when you receive a call, a text or other notification on the device. A consumer can choose between the color options for an added element of personalization, with the freedom to change the color selection according to your mood.
