Nokia Announces Two New Low Cost Phones

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."

thank you nokia, for telling developing countries they deserve nothing but a phones that was released years ago and a phone with nothing but a phonebook

nokia is so nice to their customers that they take their overstocked warehouses and surpluses of old phones that noone else wants to buy and sell them for more then theyre worth to developing countries.

great

Very Happy
You know, as dumb as this sounds, but I wonder how much market they have in America for budget phones. (I just got off a call where some 9 year old lost his C1300). It'd make a cheap replacement phone.

We have seen this done previously

Remember the Nokia 3590? That was upgraded to the 3595. One reason I love Nokia... Keeping consumer needs in mind!
