The Nokia 3200 is another example of a phone that's targeted to a younger segment of consumers, with a creative design and many options for personalization. Particularly popular with teenagers is the fact that the 3200 is Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) compatible, meaning that many Java games can be downloaded. Another fun feature of the 3200 is the built-in FM radio and included headset.

The Eye-Catching 3200

Perhaps the most talked-about feature of the 3200 is it's unique design and color scheme. The phone's transparent outer shell can be removed and different pictures and designs easily snapped in at the owner's whim. Anything can be placed in as long as it's cut to fit the shape of the original template. Nokia even includes three pre-cut inserts as well as ten sheets of paper for carving new ones.

The phone also includes a few higher-end features as well, like an integrated 0.1 megapixel camera. And since the phone also comes equipped with a Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), pictures can be sent to friends. The last few years have seen a tremendous rise in multimedia messaging, with pictures being combined with text and sound recordings for truly unique communication.

The 3200 also supports a high level of connectivity, with GPRS and EDGE technology and a tri-band GSM capability. The phone does a good job of meeting standard needs and a little more. While popular with the youth segment, it's also a well-priced phone with some surprising features and lots of potential for customization.
