Nokia announces five new phones
At the Nokia Connection 2006 in Singapore, Nokia showcased new phones targeted to the entry and mid-level customers, including first-time users. The five phones are in the classic bar form-factor and feature internal antenna for more comfortable use and smaller dimensions.
Two of the showcased phones CDMA ones but none of them feature the high-speed EV-DO data. The 2875/2875i looks as an upgrade of the 2865i, which was announced several months ago at the CTIA show in the US, adding a 1.3-megapixel camera to it. 2875i is Bluetooth (v2.0) capable phone with 262k color display and supports MP3 format as well as video files for caller ID.
The 6275/6275i on the other hand has nice specifications, including a large QVGA (240x320 pixels) screen that can display up to 262k colors, and 2-megapixel camera with flash and video capture capability. The 6275 features music player supporting various formats with memory, expandable through microSD cards up to 2GB, which allows it storing up to thousands of music files. If this is not enough for you, the 6275i has a built-in FM radio and supports audio and video streaming.
At Nokia Connection 2006, Nokia also announced several GSM phones, including the 6151 that is Nokia's most affordable 3G handset to date. It supports streaming of audio and video as well as downloading of multimedia through UMTS 2100 MHz 3G networks, used in Europe. It also operates in tri-band 900/1800/1900 GSM networks and runs on Nokia's Series 40 Interface. Designed in bar form-factor, 6151 features Bluetooth and 1.3-megapixel camera; its 30MB of memory can be expanded with microSD card for storing of multimedia files, including music ones for the music player. The phone also features FM radio and Push to Talk and is expected to launch in Europe in Q3.
The 6080 is another Series 40 phone with built-in FM radio. This camera phone supports MP3 files for music ringtones, as well as personalizing with themes and graphics, and even a Sudoku game specially designed for it. EDGE delivers speed when it comes to browsing with the xHTML browser of the phone.
Nokia 1110i is a mediocre entry-lever device with the design of 1100/1112 phones it has white display backlight and a standby time of up to 15 days.
