7 New Nokia Phones after June

Nokia today announced 7 new entry-level phones for the Indian market.

The new phones include: the Nokia 1200 and 1208, the Nokia 1650 and 2660, the Nokia 2505, and the Nokia 2630 and 2760.

Speaking at the launch, Soren Petersen, Senior Vice President for Mobile Phones, Nokia, said, India is very important to Nokia, and to the global mobile communications industry as a whole.

Petersen said, one of the fastest growing markets in the world, India is also home to several Nokia facilities, including R&D and manufacturing.

The Nokia 1200 and 1208 sport new phone-sharing and call-tracking technology, and are aimed at first-time mobile phone users.

Both comtemporary phones, the Nokia 1650 and 2660 are an attempt at marrying functionality and attractive design.

The Nokia 2505 is one of Nokia's sleekest looking fold-style phones for the CDMA market. A unique smooth-back design makes the phone ergonomic enough to both hold and ferry around in a purse or pocket.

At a mere 9.9mm, the Nokia 2630 could qualify as the thinnest handset in Nokia's armory. Both the 2630 and the 2760 are designed for the fashion-conscious, while retaining Nokia's easy-to-use feature set.

All 7 phones will be available in the second half of this year, most likely after June. They will be priced between EUR 35 and EUR 90, which translates anywhere between Rs 1,925 and Rs 4,950.
