I recently purchased a Nokia 6280 and have been very pleased with it. The feature that drew me to to it is the form factor, that of a sliding-keyboard design not only looks impressive but is also surprising functional and for the first time in my experiance with Nokia relatively advanced.

The 6280 has more going for it than just an unusual form factor though; as befits a 3G handset capable of video calling, the 6280 comes complete with two cameras - a VGA unit mounted on the front serves for video calling itself, while a 2 megapixel unit (complete with flash, active slide cover, and 8x digital zoom) graces the back of the handset. Interestingly, the design of the 6280 means the camera works best when rotated on its side.

Under the hood, so to speak, the 6280 is one of the three new handsets running the third edition of Nokia's Series 40 OS, providing support for Java games and applications as well as a music player supporting popular formats such as MP3, AAC as well as M4A and eAAC+. Music fans will also be pleased to know the 6280 also features a stereo FM radio (stereo headset included) with support for Visual Radio, as well as video ringtones. Unfortunately using it as a Mp3 player has a habit of draining the battery within a few hours. Storage is taken care of by the miniSD slot, and while not massive, the 64MB mini SD card included in the box should store a few MP3s and 2MP snapshots comfortably. I however, found this too small and upgraded to a 2GB card to store a portion of my music collection.

Nokia's 6280 also provides a whole bunch of connectivity options - including Bluetooth, Infrared, and Pop-Port connections. You'll be able to hook the phone up to your PC and synchronize downloads and transfer music to and from the device. Email is also catered to, with popular attachments (including jpeg, MP3, PPT, DOC, XLS, PDF and 3GPP formats) being supported for people on the go.

Overall, it has a good MP3 player, nice camera although can't compete with the N70s and stylish designing which with Nokia's trademark ease of use make it well recommended.
