Customizable Nokia 2605 Mirage hits Verizon

Nokia 2605 at Verizon

Verizon today prepped a last-minute addition to its phone lineup before the holidays with the advent of the Nokia 2605 Mirage. Pitched as a phone for younger and often more fashion-conscious users, the phone comes with snap-on faceplates that let owners change from the stock blue to different colors or patterns. It also draws on the same "seamless" clamshell design as the 3555 and 6555 to make for a smoother grip when open than on other phones.

The handset sits at the more basic range of Verizon's lineup and centers around its VGA camera and Bluetooth 2.0 support; data is limited to the older 1X RTT standard. The youth-oriented design is helped along by built-in support for Verizon's Chaperone service to curb access, while all users have access to VZ Navigator for assisted GPS.

Nokia's phone is available to order online for $50 on a two-year plan or $220 when contract-free. Retail units are following much later and won't be available until January 23rd.
