Nokia Announces Two New Low Cost Phones
Jun 2, 2005, 11:58 AM by (staff)
Nokia has launched two phones today as part of the international effort to provide low cost handsets for developing countries. The 1110 upgrades the 1100 to a series 40 interface and inverts the black and white screen for better legibility in bright sunlight. It is priced at 65 Euros. The 1600 has similar features, but is upgraded to a color screen and should sell for 85 Euros. Both models have a number of features aimed at prepaid carriers with growing networks, as well as features aimed at first time users like a preloaded "demo" tour of how to use the phone's basic features. Although these phones are designed for developing countries, previous Nokia models created for this purpose have sold first in the US, among them the 1100, which was sold on Cingular, and Virgin Mobile's new "Shorty."
