About Nokia 6500 Classic

The Nokia 6500 Classic mobile phone has a flawless, stylish appearance. Not to be confused with its cousin, the Nokia 6500 Slide, this phone is the handset equivalent of a Hollywood star. The polished aluminium casing offers an uncluttered, sophisticated appearance, and the slimline design-only 9.5 millimetres thick, oozes style.  The 6500 Classic looks and feels good.

It is also a joy to use.  Sticking to the stylish but simple aesthetics, the 6500 Classic features only a keypad, a screen, and a discreet micro USB port on the top.  The display screen is an eye pleasing 2-inches in size and with up to 16 million colours the Nokia user interface is able to be viewed in all its glory.  The keypad below is very well sized with Nokia's reliable five way navigation pad in the centre for scrolling.  The number keys provide great tactility while still keeping to the slimline look.
