The world's largest mobile phone manufacturer just got a little bigger. Nokia announced today the release of the new 6730 classic, which is being released worldwide through mega-carrier Vodaphone. The 6730 is meant as an upgrade for all of the Vodaphone members using the now outdated 6500c or 6300.

In terms of design, the 6730 is a pretty traditional Nokia mobile phone. It doesn't have much to brag about in the hardware department, but it does come loaded with mobile Internet options, a music player, and mobile navigation capabilities. The 6730 doesn't have many frills, but it's got everything you need (and a lot of things you want) from a phone.
Vodaphone is an enormous carrier, with over 300 million active subscribers across their worldwide network. That fact alone should make the 6730 classic a very successful phone. Nokia makes solid mobile products, and this will be an upgrade to a lot of users out there stuck with much older cells.
The gap between smartphones and regular mobile phones is growing slimmer and slimmer each day. Despite the fact that the 6730 was designed to be a lower-end, affordable mobile it still has quite a few nifty features. It's not going to be long before every mobile phone on the market has a media player, a GPS system, and Internet connectivity.
