VoIP Capabilities with Nokia New Handset

In a sign that Internet calling may soon move a step closer to the mass market, Nokia Corp. unveiled a mobile phone Monday that automatically switches between the Internet and standard cellular networks.

The technology also can provide reception in areas where cellular networks are weak, the company said.

The few phones that use the wireless Internet standard known as Wi-Fi carry a hefty price tag of $600 or more, and Nokia did not say what the 6136 handset would cost when it hits the market this spring.
