    Phone Review: Nokia 8260
    A hundred years ago, people could not have foreseen the impending ubiquity of the telephone, much less the proliferation of wireless phones that we have witnessed in recent years. Today, however, the notion of placing a phone call from virtually anywhere has become almost passe. It's no longer impressive to simply speak on a wireless phone… true status seekers strive to make and receive calls on the smallest wireless phone available.

    Enter the latest phone from Nokia, the Nokia 8260. Only four inches long and weighing 3.4 ounces, the 8260 looks like something out of a James Bond film. The palm-sized Nokia 8260 allows you to send and receive text and e-mail messages, and also features voice mail, text message indicators, a large variety of ring tones, games, and many other features. With its standard battery, the 8260 provides for 3.3 hours of talk time and eight days of standby time, and even comes in a choice of three colors: red pepper, carbon gray and electric blue.

    I have spent a fair amount of time playing with my 8260 since I purchased it several weeks ago. Although I initially fell in love with this phone because of it's compact size, I have come to appreciate its many useful and fun features. For example, the 8260 allows you to upload images and ring tones directly to the phone, providing a degree of personalization that few other phones offer. There are, in fact, numerous Web sites devoted exclusively to offering images, ring tones and other "extras" for this phone. Want to make your phone ring sound like the "007" theme? Just download your ring of choice from one of these sites that I've found helpful:

    The Nokia 8260 is also the latest wireless phone to offer html:link page="/execute/tips /textmessaging">two-way text messaging. Exceedingly popular in Europe, text messaging - which allows you to send and receive short text messages between phones with this capability - has only recently reached American shores, and is growing in popularity daily.

    Text messaging worked wonderfully on the 8260 in the tests that I performed. Although "typing" in a message on your telephone can be more time consuming than simply having a conversation, it's a great alternative when you need to send a message from a place where you aren't able to speak (like a library or a concert hall). And, as people become more familiar with text messaging "shorthand" (ex: "lol" for "laughing out loud"), typing time will become less of a consideration. Predictive text entry from Tegic, which comes with the Nokia 8260, eases the burden by requiring just one key press per letter - no more multi-tapping.

    I found the Nokia 8260 to be a fantastic phone. If you're looking for a powerful, fun phone in a small package, the Nokia 8260 is a great way to go.
