Sprint Steps Up to Series 40

Want a Nokia phone with an integrated camera, IR, FM Radio, SMS, MMS, and the same Operating System as GSM high-end handsets? Nokia looks like they plan to do just that for Sprint, as they today unveiled the Nokia 6225.

The 6225 is a CDMA2000 phone that uses J2ME and will be sold in the United States. That pretty much nails down Sprint PCS as the sole carrier of the phone (in the U.S.).

Editor’s Note: All I can say is whoa. Series 40 is starting to become the new baseline standard in terms of GSM phones, and bringing it to Sprint will certainly be a welcome addition. Plus, with pop-port (Series 40 standard upgrade system) support the phone can be easily upgraded with even Bluetooth (if the upgrade is made – which many in the GSM community have reported Nokia is currently starting to make).
