It may not be the biggest news today out of Espoo, but Nokia has brought out a pair of very capable midrange handsets -- so capable, in fact, that we're kinda surprised Nokia is voluntarily using the term "midrange" to describe them. The 9.5mm thick (nice!) 6500 Classic is a sleek, anodized aluminum candybar featuring a 2 megapixel camera, 1GB (yes, 1GB) of internal storage, Bluetooth, QVGA display, microUSB port for charging, audio, and data, and quadband GSM plus UMTS on the 850 and 2100MHz bands (read: compatible everywhere but the US). The 16.4mm thick 6500 Slide is -- you guessed it -- a slider with just a little bit more meat on its bones than the Classic, upping the cam to a Carl Zeiss autofocus 3.2 megapixel piece and including a microSD slot, integrated FM radio and TV out. Look for both to be available in the third quarter; €320 (about $431) for the Classic and €370 (about $498) for the Slide before subsidies.
