Priced at just €65 or so before tax and subsidy, the Nokia 2700 Classic is priced as an entry-level phone, but the features look like they belong in a much more expensive handset.

With a design inspired by the Nokia 6300, the Nokia 2700 Classic has a very similar feature set to its well-known predecessor - the screen isn't quite as good and the case looks more plasticky, but otherwise the Nokia 2700 Classic offers everything that the 6300 does.. but it is a lot cheaper. The 6300 currently sells SIM-free for about €110 before tax, so the €65 price point of the 2700 is impressive.

 Nokia 2700 So what do you get for the money? You might expect the answer is "not a lot", but in fact the 2700's feature set is very well rounded. There's a 2" 240 x 320 pixel display, Bluetooth, microSD expandable memory (2GB maximum), an FM radio, media player and a web browser and email client. Usefully, the 2700 comes with a standard 3.5mm audio socket, so it will most likely make a decent MP3 player.

At this sort of price range there are some compromises - video capture resolution is just 176 x 144 pixels at 15 frames per second, which isn't much use. There's no autofocus or flash on the camera (although it does have low-light capabilities), and there's no memory card in the standard sales package. But for this sort of money, who cares?

Talktime is a useful 6 hours maximum with up to 11 days standby time, and the 2700 Classic weighs only 85 grams.

It is a good looking device - low end Nokias often are - but you might not like the flat keypad arrangement. It certainly looks an awful lot more expensive than it actually is, and that can only be a good thing.

Nokia say that the 2700 Classic should be available during Q2 2009.
