Nokia's long focus on emerging cell phone markets was further solidified today when it unveiled three low-priced phones in Finland. The three models offer varied designs and features sets, but all come in at under $135 (100 euros) without a contract.
The Nokia 2720 Fold offers a thin, flip-phone design in black or deep red. Nokia emphasizes that the front face of the phone acts as a mirror, though we're not sure how that helps a user "stay organized with easy access to e-mail, calendar, Internet connectivity, and file sharing applications." Features include Bluetooth, a personal organizer, messaging and e-mail, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a music player, an FM radio, a voice recorder, a wireless Web browser, and a speakerphone. It comes in two dual-band versions: GSM 850/1900 and GSM 900/1800.
Moving up the scale a bit is the Nokia 2730 Classic. The quad-band GSM handset supports four WCDMA (3G) bands, making it a super world phone. Inside, you'll find a speakerphone, messaging and e-mail, a wireless Web browser, a music player, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, PC syncing, GPS with Nokia Maps, and a personal organizer. The candy-bar model also has a microSD card slot and a 3.5mm headset jack.
Back in flip-phone land, the Nokia 7020 comes in hot pink and graphite. Features include a 2-megapixel camera, a speakerphone, a music player, voice commands, GPS with Nokia Maps, Bluetooth, a personal organizer, messaging and e-mail, and a wireless Web browser. The 7020 is a quad-band world phone with support for EDGE networks.
