>> I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Nokia 6086. It is one of T-Mobile's first phones that is compatible with the hotspot at-home service that lets you use certain phones like the Nokia 6086 to make calls via WiFi. On the front here is a simple monochrome external screen. On top here is a VGA camera, on the side here is a volume rocker and a dedicated camera button and on the other side is a micro SD card slot. Open it up and you get a pretty light luster screen, but its okay for a pretty basic phone like this. On the bottom here you get a very nice keypad, it's probably one of the best keypad we've ever used on a cell phone, just because it's really nice and bubbly, it has really good texture and you can easily dial by feel. There is almost no way to press a button by mistake here. So over all we really like the design of the phone, it's really nice and compact, very rounded and curvy. Features include a VGA camera, a music player and of course [inaudible] mentioned support for T-Mobile's hotspot at-home service. Connecting to WiFi is pretty easy, all you have to do is go to the WiFi settings and scroll to the selected network and off you go making calls via WiFi. Call quality was pretty good, with both with the WiFi and the GSM. It also switched calls between the different networks pretty easily, so over all we think it is a pretty good phone. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Nokia 6086. ^M00:01:31 [ Music ]

If you can afford it, the Nokia N80 delivers a powerful multimedia phone packed with advanced imaging features, PIM functionality, and good call quality.
The Nokia E61 certainly isn't for everyone, but with its powerful productivity apps, connectivity options, and good call quality, the smart phone will make a good addition to a corporate user's arsenal.
The Nokia Mirage 2605's call quality will disappoint many and it fails even the most basic durability tests.
The Nokia 6301 has a simple, easy-to-use design with a brilliant display and well-designed navigation controls. Its functional feature set includes Wi-Fi for VoIP calling, and its call quality is top-notch.
The Nokia 7510 is a decent mid-range phone that offers Wi-Fi for making calls. It earns points for a unique design, but we wish the call volume were louder.
The Pentax Optio S6 is a well-built, compact, and attractive camera that is a pleasure to use for snapshots but won't dazzle with its photo quality.
If you can afford it, the Nokia N80 delivers a powerful multimedia phone packed with advanced imaging features, PIM functionality and good call quality. CNET's Bonnie Cha takes a look.
The Nokia 1661 offers a simple design and basic calling features.
As with all Nokia N series smartphones, the Nokia N78 impresses with its high-end features, especially the new geotagging tool, but we were slightly disappointed by the spotty call quality.
