New Range From Nokia

Nokia announced a whole bunch of new budget-oriented mobile phones.
The new handsets are Nokia 1200, 1208, 1650, 2660, 2630 and 2760...
They boast some spanking new features and thus show that the low-end mobile phone market is also a field that offers grounds for innovation.

Nokia 1200 • Nokia 1208
Both Nokia 1200 and Nokia 1208 are candy bar shaped phones designed for the emerging markets and thus lack most of the standard features you expect to see in a phone nowadays. Nevertheless, they do provide some interesting "extras". The call-time tracking function allows calls to be automatically ended after a preset limit in order to reduce costs to the user. The multi-phonebook allows several users of the same handset to have their own phonebook lists. Other functions of these phones are one-touch flashlight, localized languages, tutorial, etc. The difference between the two models is that Nokia 1200 comes with a monochrome display, while the Nokia 1208 is equipped with a color CSTN display.

Nokia 1650 is another entry-level candy bar phone but is much more sophisticated in terms of features compared to the previous two models. This one has FM radio, MP3 support, localization in 75 languages and also has a flashlight and option for pre-set call time limit.
Nokia 2660 is a clamshell phone with rather nice design a bit more than basic functions. The phone features GPRS connectivity, Bluetooth, FM radio, MP3 support and a 500-entry phonebook.

The Nokia 2630 and the Nokia 2760 are also low-end handsets but are much more feature-rich than the previous four models. The Nokia 2630 candy bar phone is the thinnest model in Nokia portfolio with its mere 9.9 mm. It is equipped with a camera, Bluetooth, FM radio and MP3 support.
