The Nokia 6500 Slide Black was originally launched on Orange as a network exclusive a couple of weeks ago, consumers were only able to buy the Black version of the Nokia 6500 Slide on either an Orange pay monthly contract deal or on Orange pay as you go.

But that has all changed today as the shackles of the network exclusive have now been lost the Nokia 6500 Slide Black has been made available on the 3 Mobile network.
This is great news for consumers as 3 Mobile are well renowned for offering the most amount of free minutes and text messages for your monthly line rental charge when compared to the other UK network operators.
Based on the design of the Nokia 6280 and 6288 handsets and unlike the Nokia 6500 Classic, this version of the 6500 is a slider.
The Stainless Steel casing provides extra protection against everyday knocks and scuffs whilst the extensive features take care of business.
The Black Nokia 6500 Slide offers slightly better power management than that of the Nokia 6500 Classic, with 6 hours of talktime and 310 hours on standby and includes all of the basic features available in the 6500 Classic such as the built-in MP3 Player, web browser, email, instant messaging, EDGE technology, UMTS support and so forth.
And as with the Classic version, the Nokia 6500 Slide Black is a 3G enabled handset but the camera has been boasted up to 3.2 mega pixels with the introduction of Carl Zeiss Optics and the inclusion of a secondary camera for video calling is a bonus plus you've also got FM Radio with RDS.
Other enhancements available with the Slide version of the Nokia 6500 include a TV-out jack so Video clips and images can be played/viewed on your Television screen as well as enabling TV Video Calls & Conference Calls and then seperately you've also got A2DP Stereo support with Bluetooth.
Now that the network exclusive period is over it is expected that the Nokia 6500 Slide black will be rolled out onto further networks in the near future.
