Tidy and neat both inside and out, lovingly designed to hide those endlessly useful features, the 6210 lived up to every one of my expectations. A typically stylish facia covers up a wealth of hi-tech features which leave little to be desired for even the most fussy of users, and in my opinion the phone is best suited to the business user (but is a superb phone to own regardless).

-The Phonebook-
the phonebook can hold up to 500 numbers with 99 on the simcard, and under each name one can hold multiple numbers of different types (mobile, office, home, fax), addresses, email addresses and there's space for notes should you use it. The centralised number database makes for a more compact, organised list - no more trawling through Andy, Andy Fax, Andy Mobile etc. Caller groups allow for different alerts for different call types, so you can more or less tell who's calling before you look at the phone. Voice and speed dialling are present and very efficient, speeding up the number punching process and adding safety when hands-free calling in the car.

-Messages & WAP-
The phone holds 150 messages plus 10 on the simcard. Therefore you will rarely run out of space for those texts. You can send and recieve those lovely picture messages if you dont mind using three txts to do it. The phone accommodates for settings for up to five WAP networks and has a 43.2kbps access speed. When it's used as a modem or fax machine it runs at 14.4kbps.

The infrared port on the top of the phone comes in very handy when you want to transfer numbers with other (hi-tech!) colleagues and enables the device to be easily 'connected' to a laptop, psion or palm organiser for internet and fax. The provided and superbly engineered PC Suite can be used through IR or alternatively through the extortionately priced serial cable. This expands the utility of the phone by means of quicker access to numbers, messages and the entire settings library, and allows backup of those precious numbers. You can even change logos, mess with the picture messages and upload ringtones through IR.

An organiser helps you plan tasks out with alerts through the day, and can be synchronised with Outlook and other PC diaries. Personally I use it to tell me what date it is, I'm just that organised!

No Nokia would be complete without good old snakes. Snakes II here, then, accompanied by Opposite (reversi) and the excellent Pairs II. Many an hour in the waiting room has whittled away to those snake high scores. Just watch how much the sounds annoy other people!

One thing not mentioned thus far is the vibrating alert (which I find to be as essential as wheels on a car). Take messages in the library, no-one will know. Overall, though, a phone with huge capacity for the heavy user - but if you can afford one then by all means buy it for luxury. It's reliable, full of features and it looks great. Nokia have done it again.
