Nokia 7230 Overview
In March 2010 a new slider Nokia 7230 appeared on store shelves. Nokia phones are distinguished with classical, and to some extent, even conservative design. And, despite the fact that the manufacturer provides a whole range of sliders of different price categories, among which there are also quite inexpensive and lovely female models of different colors, we may say that Nokia has created a slider that does not have prototypes in the market according to price-functionality. Similar models of other manufacturers are either more expensive or less functional.
Nokia 7230 is represented in two colors- black and pink. The device was created targeting the female audience. The price of the novelty is about seven thousand roubles in Russia. And in an area of eight thousand roubles in the model range Nokia crosses the border between sliders and touch-phones.
Nokia 7230 is equipped with metal bezel, emphasizing/underlining rounded shape of the model, form factor slider, weighs 100 grams with dimensions of 48 mm in width and 98 mm in length. Judging by the combination of specifications, namely design and value, it harmoniously falls into the family of female sliders from Nokia.
