You know that this is just one big cash grab, right? You know that mobile phone operators and manufacturers alike create handsets like this, because they know that it will help them sell a few more phones than they normally would. With February 14th just around the corner, Fido has opted to start selling the Nokia 6300 in red. It’s almost like they’re taunting you with a potential Valentine’s Day gift.
As with most other palette swaps, the changing of the casing on the Nokia 6300 is not accompanied by an appropriate swapping of innards and features. Instead, the red version of this candybar is functionally identical to its black and silver counterpart. Interestingly, I don’t see this red option available on the Fido site yet, but they assure us that it’s totally go time.
As before, the Nokia 6300 is a tri-band GSM (850/1800/1900) handset with a 2 megapixel digital camera, high-speed EDGE with HTML support, Bluetooth, music player, FM stereo, and a microSD memory card slot. Because of its relatively low-end specs, it has a relatively low-end price to match: $50 with a three-year.
