T-Mobile International was confirmed on Monday as the sole carrier of Nokia's new 6650 smart phone after a joint announcement from both firms at the CeBIT tradeshow in Hanover, Germany.
T-Mobile and Nokia didn't release the retailing prices for the new units but T-Mobile will be expected to offer the Nokia 6650 for one euro to its customers who sign up for its Relax 100 rate.
The new plan followed moves made by other carriers to get the new smart phones to multimedia consumers who are willing to pay the premiums for advance services.
Nokia built the bi-fold handset with an assisted GPS (A-GPS) capability and multimedia player functions in an effort to enable customers have access to T-Mobile services such as Web'n'walk, MyFaves, Mobile Jukebox and NaviGate.
The new A-GPS provides more reliable information than the conventional GPS and can't easily be distracted by signal weaknesses indoors or beneath thick foliage.
