Nokia 2720 Fold

 Nokia 2720 Fold Available now
18th May 2009

An entry-level clamshell phone costing just €55 before tax and subsidy, the Nokia 2720 Fold is aimed primarily at emerging markets, but the handset's good looks will probably appeal elsewhere too.

The mirrored exterior of the 2720 Fold covers a fairly basic but practical phone. There's a 1.8" 128 x 160 pixel internal display plus a smaller external screen, a 1.3 megapixel camera, MP3 ringtones and an FM radio. The 2720 Fold also integrates with Ovi Mail, it has an email client and web browser plus Bluetooth.

One of the ideas with Ovi Mail is that users can sign up on the phone without having to use a computer, which makes it just about practical to use a handset like the Nokia 2720 as the only email-connected device that you need.

In some regions, the 2720 will ship with Nokia Life Tools which will allow the phone access to useful information services without the need for web access.

There are two dual-band variants of the 2720 depending on market, a 900 / 1800 MHz version and an 850 / 1900 MHz variant. Both support GPRS and EDGE data, but of course there's no 3G support. Maximum talktime is around 5 hours plus about 16 days standby time.

Although this is a very glossy and attractive looking device, it is a really basic one. The dual-screen design and good looks come at a price, and although €55 won't break the bank for many customers it does seem that the 2720 introduces a little bit of luxury into Nokia's entry-level lineup.

Nokia say that the 2720 should be available during Q3 2009 in Black and Deep Red colour schemes.
