New Nokia 3220 Camera Phone with Light Messaging

Nokia launches new low-cost camera phone with some flashy new features.

Nokia introduces with the Nokia 3220 Light Messaging. By waving the Nokia 3220 from side to side, the LED lights of the Nokia Xpress-on Fun Shell light up to "write" a message that appears to float in mid-air.
See it in action in a video on Nokia's site or refer to the photo below to get a sense on how this Light Messaging looks. It seems it only works with short words like Fun, Dance and so on.

The Nokia 3220 also features transparent Nokia Xpress-On grips, which pulsate with light effects to indicate calls, messages, and in sync with the beat of ringtones.

The Nokia 3220 can also be used as a joystick enabled through motion sensors. Two motion enabled games are included: SwampRacer, a high-octane airboat racing game, and AirExpress, where you fly freely around an exotic archipelago world.

The 3220 has a VGA Camera. The phone has a low unsubsidized price of around 250 EUR and is targeted obviously at young consumers.
More details in Press-Release and at the Nokia 3220 Product Page.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
