Nokia 1112, 2310 and 2610

Available now
30th March 2006

Nokia have announced three new handsets aimed primarily at emerging markets, where cost and battery life are often more important than features. All three phones are similar to devices already in Nokia's portfolio, and should hit their respective markets sometime in Q2 2006.

 


Nokia 2610

Based loosely on the Nokia 2600, the Nokia 2610 is a significantly improved phone. The weight has been reduced by 5 grams to 91 grams, the screen is now a 128x128 pixel panel in 65,000 colours, up from 4096. Battery life is around 50% better with up to 3-5 hours talktime and 10-15 days standby time. The Nokia 2610 also adds an email client, and XHTML web browser, but like the 2600 it doesn't appear to support GPRS or EDGE, so connections are strictly dial-up only.

Also, there's no camera, media player or Bluetooth, but that's not a major consideration. Nokia say that the 2610 features a "large screen", although they don't give details of the screen size. Also, there 2610 comes with larger fonts to aid usability. Overall, this is a decent enough basic handset with enough flexibility to be useful in the markets that it's aimed at. In addition, the 2610 comes with a soft grip which should help protect it against knocks and dust. Nokia say that the 2610 will be priced around 75 euros before taxes and subsidy.

Nokia 2310

The Nokia 2310 is very closely related to the Nokia 1600 rather than the monochrome Nokia 2300. It's a lightweight phone at just 85 grams, with a relatively small 96x68 pixel display in 65,000 colours. There's no camera, Bluetooth, GPRS or media player, but it does come with a useful FM radio. The 2310 features 4-6 hours talktime and 13-16 days standby time, so it shouldn't need recharging too often. There are a couple of bundled games too, and these vary by market.

This is probably the cheapest colour Nokia on the market, and again it's ideally suited for emerging markets. Base price for the Nokia 2310 is around 65 euros.

Nokia 1112

The Nokia 1112 is identical to the Nokia 1110 except that it comes with a more conventional monochrome display. Compared to the similar Nokia 1101 and Nokia 1100 (the world's best-selling phone), the 1112 comes with a significantly better keypad and much longer battery life. The 1112 weighs just 80 grams.

The display is a 96x68 pixel monochrome panel with a white backlight. Talktime is 3-5 hours with 10-15 days standby time. The Nokia 1112 is available as a GSM 900/1800 or 850/1900 handset depending on market. There are also three inbuilt games and handsfree calling. That pretty much sums up the features in the Nokia 1112, there's not much else to speak of.. however the 1112 will be priced at around 45 euros before tax and subsidy which makes it an extremely attractive phone when it comes to price.
