The new N-Gage devices are coming thick and fast now, yet another new compatible phone has been announced by Nokia, the 6720 Classic. It seems to be an upgraded version of the 6220 Classic, but will include N-Gage built into the firmware as well as other Nokia Ovi services. It will have an unlocked price of 245 euros plus taxes, and should launch some time before the Summer.

I really don't like the 6720 Classic. It's so damn ugly with the color and the way it's bent, at least in my eyes, and lack xenon flash.
Maybe I had unrealistic expectations on the upcoming 6xxx S60 device, but lately we had 6xxx phones with 3.5mm jack (6303 Classic), Wi-Fi (6260 Slide) and xenon flash (6220 Classic). I was kinda expecting Nokia would merge those features into one for a decent price.
But the 6720 Classic neither has Wi-Fi or xenon flash. So yeah, a disappointment. Really surprised about the lack of Wi-Fi too as I felt it would really be there, since the 5630 have it. When I saw the 5630 I expected the new 6xxx S60 candybar to be a 5630 mixed with 6220 Classic, but boy was I wrong!
Oh well, at least it got an accelerometer sensor, eh? :tongue:

I think the 6720 is meant to be for people who want an S60 model in a feature phone casing. It's got nice big buttons like the 6220, it's the kind of phone that I could imagine my parents using.
I don't think its target audience would worry too much about the specs (which is why I was a bit amazed that the 6220 had a xenon flash!).
