"Despite being one of our smallest WCDMA phones to date, the Nokia 6233 is no lightweight when it comes to performance," says Kai Oistamo, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Mobile Phones, Nokia. "The Nokia 6233 builds on the formula that made the Nokia 6230i so popular - a classically-designed, feature-rich device together with an intuitive, easy to use interface.
