Nokia launched its sleek, minimalist looking 6282 sliding keyboard phone today.

The Nokia 6282 sports a 1 megapixel camera (slight disappointment considering Nokia has entered the 2 megapixel market), an FM radio, and a digital music player with hot-swappable miniSD cards. The phone is 3G compatible and should offer the ability to download music, ringtones, and more of a high speed network.

The phone is expected to be available here in the States on 1900MHz UMTS networks sometime in Q1 2006. No word on price.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
