The two new phones are targeted at users in emerging markets and include entry-level feature sets. Only one will find its way to the U.S. The 2600 Classic, not to be confused with the existing 2600 model, is a bar-style phone that will come in a number of different colors and have a removable face plate. There will be two versions of it, including a GSM/EDGE 850/1900 version that is compatible with U.S. networks. It also has MP3 ringtones, an FM radio, and a VGA camera. It is already available for $95.

when is it coming out

It will not be made available directly to U.S. buyers, so you'll have to check around the Internet to see if you can buy an unlocked one.
