Nokia intros budget-priced navigation handset

Nokia on Monday announced the upcoming release of the 2710 Navigation Edition candybar handset, which it touts as being the most affordable handset with built-in navigation capability. The device sports a GPS sensor and has Nokia Maps preloaded. It is meant for use in both developed and developing nations, it has the ability to provide spoken turn-by-turn driving information.

An integrated digital compass together with preloaded main maps aids in navigation when a digital data connection is not available. Otherwise, the handset has a 2.2-inch display with a 240x320 resolution, and there is a 3.5mm headset jack to use with regular headphones. There is also Bluetooth 2.1 support, stereo FM tuner with RDS, a 2-megapixel camera and a pre-supplied 2GB microSD card.

The 2710 Navigation Edition is expected to sell at the equivalent of $163 in Europe before carrier discounts, with sales starting in the spring of next year.
