One look at the Nokia 6700 classic is enough to realise that it deserves the name ‘classic’. Its smoothly rounded stainless steel case and slimline design give it rugged yet understated feel, with a stylish full metal keypad completing its premium finish. The 2.2-inch screen is the perfect size for framing and viewing images from its impressive five megapixel camera, or navigating using the built-in A-GPS receiver and Nokia Maps. Naturally, the 6700 classic has a high-speed HSDPA link for swift, simple web browsing and downloads, such as hoovering up the latest tunes from the Nokia Music Store to enjoy via its fully-featured Nokia Media Player. But classic also means not neglecting the basics, so the 6700 also features Uplink Noise Cancellation for clearer voice calls and up to five hours of talk time from a single charge of its battery. The great value package includes an eco savvy high-efficiency charger, 1GB memory card and USB headset.

What they say

“We love the polished look of the keypad, the expensive feel and overall build quality of the 6700, something which belies its competitive pricing”

Andrew Boxall, Dial-a-Phone

An epic poem recounting the siege of Troy.

Plato’s Republic
An immensely influential treatise on government, philosophy and culture.

Aristotle’s Physics
The first rigorous attempt to describe the natural world.

Virgil’s Aeneid
A poem that describes the founding of ancient Rome by Aeneas, a character from the Iliad.

Tacitus’s The Annals
A historical account of the reigns of Augustus Caesar and Nero, and first secular book to mention Jesus.
