New Nokia Handsets aim for growth markets

Nokia has introduced a pair of CDMA handsets designed expressly for the world's fastest-growing regions.

Both the monoblock Nokia 1255 phone and the fold-style Nokia 2355 phone boast strong feature sets not usually found at their entry-level price point, and both are expected to be available during 1Q,2006.

The Nokia 1255 weighs 80gms phone and offers productivity tools such as a two-way handsfree speakerphone, voice recorder and calendar with an alarm clock.

'Fun' features include two built-in games, 20 ringtones and a selection of user-selectable screen savers. In recognition of the need to stay in touch while minimising downtime, the Nokia 1225 phone delivers up to four hours of talk time and up to 10 days of standby time. A partial list of additional features includes: 250 contact phonebook, text messaging, stopwatch and countdown timer, internal vibrating alert, and easy-to-use Nokia user interface.

The Nokia 2355 phone delivers an ultra-compact, colour screen, 78gms fold-style phone to the entry-level market. The 128 x 128 pixel 65k colour screen, built-in FM radio and integrated flashlight allow the Nokia 2355 phone to deliver a unique set of features to owners, while the ability to download BREW 1.2 or Java MIDP 1.0 content, eg, ringtones, games and screensavers, offers value-added services that meet the needs of both consumers and operators.

Other selected features of the Nokia 2355 phone include: text and multimedia messaging, integrated speakerphone, WAP 2.0 compliant browser, 16-chord polyphonic ringtones, and calendar with alarm clock.
