Nokia announce five new affordable phones

Available globally but aimed primarily at acquiring new customers in the developing world, five new Nokia handsets are coming to market. In the £20 to £50 price band (before tax and network subsidy), you can expect to see some of them in the UK.

Impacting on the pre-pay and value network brands, they’ll also draw on mum and dad’s nostalgia and fond memories of units like the 3210 when buying for their own families ten years on.

Model numbers 1280, 1616 and 1800 all support FM radio, flashlights and dust/scuff resistance, while the 2220 slide and 2690 add email through Nokia’s Ovi service. All the phones have been made to be colourful, reliable, able to take a few knocks and have long standby times. It’s all good.
