Nokia Delivers Three Diverse Handset Designs

 Boasting a combination of fresh new styling and Nokia quality and ease of use, Nokia unveiled three new CDMA handsets during the annual Nokia Connection event in Singapore. The high-tier Nokia 6265 camera phone delivers a 2 megapixel imaging sensor in a modern sliding design. For the entry-level market, the folding Nokia 2255 phone and Nokia 2125 offer 64K color displays and convenient integrated speakerphones at an attractive price point. The Nokia 2125 is expected to be available during the third quarter of 2005, while the Nokia 2255 and Nokia 6265 are expected to be available during the fourth quarter of 2005.

"Having announced seven new CDMA handsets featuring three unique form factors over the past four months, Nokia is proving its commitment to the CDMA market by quickly refreshing its already strong lineup with products designed to appeal to the widest range of customers," said Timo Ihamuotila, senior vice president of Nokia's CDMA business unit. "The three phones we have announced today truly enhance our CDMA portfolio. With a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth technology, integrated digital music player and its large crystal clear high-resolution QVGA screen, the Nokia 6265 will strongly appeal to the experienced wireless user, while the Nokia 2255 and 2125 offer great design and a strong feature set for those just entering the wireless world in established and emerging markets."

Nokia 6265: A winning combination of technology and design

Nokia's most feature-rich CDMA phone to date, the Nokia 6265 packs an extra-large 240 x 320 pixel display, 2 megapixel camera with LED flash (effective resolution 1.92 megapixels), digital music player, Bluetooth wireless technology and miniSD card support into a compact sliding design that measures a mere 22 mm thin. When operated in camera mode, the Nokia 6265 is designed to be used horizontally, resulting in a more conventional photography experience. The Nokia 6265 includes 24MB of on board memory, and supports all available sizes of widely available miniSD cards, including 512MB and 1GB versions that can store hundreds of 2 megapixel images or digital music files

Music fans will enjoy the built in FM radio and digital music player which supports MP3, AAC and eAAC+ files, especially when paired with the optional wireless stereo headset. Integrated Bluetooth technology also allows the Nokia 6265 to be used with a long and growing list of compatible devices, including a wide selection of wireless headsets and car kits. The Nokia 6265 supports other forms of entertainment content, including 15 frame per second streaming video and downloadable BREW 3.1 or Java 3D applications - both of which are crisply rendered on the 262K color QVGA display.

Nokia 2255: Compact fold at a compact price

Nokia's latest fold-style CDMA model phone, the Nokia 2255 is engineered to deliver reliable wireless performance at an entry-level price point while not forgetting the importance of a compelling design and a strong feature set. The very compact Nokia 2255 includes a bright 128 x 128 pixel 64K color display with user selectable 'themes', downloadable MIDI ringtones and even an integrated FM radio.

For maximum productivity, the Nokia 2255 features business applications including a spreadsheet, calculator and currency converter and a handsfree speakerphone perfect for impromptu conference calls. Outside of work, three included games help to pass the time, while a built in flashlight can help to brighten up the dark of night.

Nokia 2125: Classic style for the entry category

The entry-level Nokia 2125 features a compact design with metallic trim to accentuate its classically designed form. Only 21.5 mm thick and weighing in at 85 grams, the Nokia 2125 features a 64K color screen, handsfree speakerphone and an integrated flashlight -- an attractive balance of size, price and feature set.

The easy-to-use interface makes the Nokia 2125 perfect for first-time and prepaid users, who will also appreciate the three built-in games, user-changeable Xpress-on color covers and downloadable MIDI ring tone support. The Nokia 2125 also boasts a number of features unexpected on an entry-level product such as voice dialing, voice commands and voice recording, calculator, calendar, alarm clock, and an extensive phonebook supporting multiple entries.
