Nokia’s plans to re-enter the South Korean market have been confirmed today, as the Finnish company officially announced the release of Nokia 6210s in the Asian country.
The phone is actually the 6210 Navigator, launched in Europe in the summer of 2008.
As we already reported, the 6210s cannot offer navigation capabilities in South Korea, because of country regulations that ask GPS-capable handsets to use locally-based map servers.
So this kind of explains why Nokia ditched the “Navigation” word from the official name of 6210s.
Without its navigation capabilities, 6210s is presented only as Nokia’s first 3G handset to be sold in South Korea.
Manufactured at the Korean Masan facility, Nokia 6210s should be available as of today, via KTF, for 396,000 KRW (about $300).
