Nokia today announced that it is shipping the Nokia 6600 Smartphone—a tri-band GSM phone which supports MIDP 2.0 and MMC flash memory expansion. Although the company describes the phone as being “designed for a multitasking mobile workforce” and only briefly mentions the fact that it can play games, Nokia clearly understands the percentage of office workers that either desire to or already play games on their business-related PDAs, phones, and computers. For while the phone’s Web page mentions only one game (Pinball) that is included on a memory card sold with the phone, browsing Nokia’s online store for the 6600 reveals dozens and dozens of downloadable games. Other key features of the Nokia 6600 include a VGA camera, Bluetooth and IrDA connectivity, a WAP 2.0 (XHTML Mobile Profile) browser, video streaming, OMA Digital Rights Management version 1.0, and a built-in speakerphone.
