Nokia 2760 and 2630
Nokia this morning used a press event in New Delhi to roll out its new series entry phones, promising to deliver genuinely useful extras to countries that often go without. Two of the phones highlighting the launch are the 2760 (pictured) and 2630. Both include Bluetooth, a VGA camera, and an FM radio for music; the 2760's larger clamshell design also makes it possible to record video, a rarity in any phone of its class. The 2630 further stands out among handsets, says the company: the device is the thinnest ever Nokia phone, measuring just 0.39 inches deep and appealing to those looking for a truly sleek phone despite a lower budget.
The two flagship phones of today's introductions go on sale this summer in GSM-based areas at prices of $116 for the 2630 and $122 for the 2760. Both support North American networks as well as their intended developing markets.
