Nokia 2660 and 2760

 Nokia 2660 Discontinued
7th May 2007

Nokia's 2000 series of handsets is pretty sparsely populated - typically used for device just one step above the most basic mobile phones possible.

The Nokia 2660 joins this range, offering a fairly simply but stylish clamshell phone aimed at developing markets and budget consumers.

Priced at just €85, the Nokia 2660 is a lightweigh 79 gram clamshell phone with a basic 128x160 pixel CSTN display in 65,000 colours plus a smaller external display. The 2660 also has an FM radio and MP3 ringtones (but not a full multimedia player). Surprisingly for a device that it so inexpensive, the Nokia 2660 has Bluetooth too.

There's also a speakerphone function, support for GPRS and WAP and also MMS messaging. These are all pretty common in midrange phones, but remember this is significantly less than €100 which makes it very good value for money.

The battery life on the Nokia 2660 is impressive - it has a maximum talktime of 7 hours with up to 13 days standby time.

 Nokia 2760 Closely related to the Nokia 2660 is the Nokia 2760 - just over on gram heavier at 80.5 grams but this time coming with an improved TFT display and a VGA resolution digital camera.

This also comes with an FM radio, Bluetooth, a spakerphne and MP3 ringtones but as with the 2660 there's no multimedia player and certainly no expandable memory. The battery life is also quoted a 7 hours talktime and 13 days standby time.

At just a shade more expensive than the Nokia 2660, the €90 Nokia 2760 is significantly better due to the active matrix screen and camera, although carrier subsidy always tends to distort prices when they get to the consumer.

The more basic Nokia 2660 will be available in Black, Silver and Warm Silver colours. The slightly more expensive 2760 will be available in Navy Blue, Velvet Red, Smoky Grey, Metallic Black and Sandy Gold colours.

These are dual-band GSM devices - available in either 850/1900 MHz or 900/1800 Mhz according to market.

Both the 2660 and 2760 models offer exceptional value for money, and although their features are a little basic compared to most "midrange" models in European markets, the 2660 and 2760 are aimed at a different type of customer.

Nokia say that these two devices should be available during Q2-Q3 2007.
