The faithful 6310i
So why has the 6310i survived so successfully for so long?
One reason is the sizeable installed base of CARK-91 handsfree car kits, and the fact that the 6310i appeared to be the last in a line of phones that fitted it. However - this may be about to change. According to nokia.co.uk, the list of compatible phones for the CARK-91 now includes a new phone, the 6151, which is billed as "coming soon". At first glance this phone looks quite well featured, with colour screen, 1.3 megapixel camera, music player, FM radio, and most of the features we now expect on a phone, whilst having a conservative appearance and manageable size.
My wife and I still have a trusty 6310i each, mainly due to the fact that all three cars in our household have a CARK-91 car kit fitted, but I am considering upgrading us both to the 6151 when it arrives. Will this be the phone that finally knocks the 6310i off its perch?
Will El Reg be reviewing this important phone some time soon?
