With its extensive, easy-to-use feature set, the Nokia 6131 is poised to become a modern classic. This sophisticated phone pays careful attention to ergonomics, both in its compact, slim folding design and elegantly spaced keypad. Even the black soft touch paint and chrome accents make this model pleasant to the eye and the touch. At the press of a button, the phone gently opens revealing a large, high-resolution true color QVGA display that supports 16 million colors, ideal for viewing rich multimedia content. Additionally, the cover display offers 262K colors.
As part of its comprehensive feature set, the Nokia 6131 allows consumers to enjoy their favourite music with the built-in digital music player and FM stereo radio supporting Visual Radio. Capturing and sharing images is easy with the Nokia 6131 phone's 1.3 megapixel camera, featuring a dedicated camera button and 8x digital zoom. Both the main and cover displays can be used as viewfinder.
