Discuss this handset in our forum 

The Nokia 2652 is a cosmetic enhancement of the Nokia 2650 clamshell - a simple, low cost device that Nokia aim to have on the market for just 100 (60 / $115 approximately) unsubsidised price.

As far as we can tell, there are no new features with the Nokia 2652, except that it comes in different colours and with a slightly different external mouldings - a patterned effect called "Cell" and floral effect called "Fleur". As far as we can tell, the "linen" coloured phone on the right goes with the "Fleur" theme, and "Cell" is a black interior with either a very dark grey or mid grey exterior. You can reasonably assume that "Fleur" is for the girls, and "Cell" for the boys.

 Nokia 2652 "Cell" When the Nokia 2650 came out, we thought it looked a bit like a cross between a sunlounger and a sanitary towel, and although the Nokia 2652 retains the oddball looks, the design detailing certainly makes it look better. The Nokia 2650 was always a very interesting handset to hold in your hand though because of the interesting mix of materials and textures, and this handset is no different. It certainly looks more distinctive that a standard silver clamshell.

As we said, it's a simple device. There's a 128x128 pixel display in 65,000 colours, GPRS, MMS, flashing LED effects, a WAP 1.2 browser, Java, downloadable polyphonic ringtones and some PIM functionality, along with a set of other which mean that the Nokia 2652 covers most of the basics. There's no Bluetooth, camera or MP3 player, and it's only a dual-band 900/1800 GSM device.. but remember, this is a 100 Euro phone.

Nokia say that they are aiming this at "emerging markets", and they specifically mention Africa, China and the Middle East in addition to Europe. European customers can expect to see this available on prepay where it promises to offer very good value for money. Shipping is expected to being in October this year.
