New CDMA handset combines contemporary design with a "not too much, not too little, but just right" feature set
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Responding to the needs of customers who want an easy-to-use, affordable handset to stay connected to friends and family, Nokia today introduced the compact and popularly priced Nokia 2135 phone. A generous 400-entry phonebook ensures that the largest circle of friends or the biggest of families can always be close at hand, while a full 3.5 hours of talktime or 11 days of standby time means that the Nokia 2135 phone will remain a faithful companion, even between charges.
"Many consumers are looking for a simple, affordable phone to keep them in touch with the people who mean the most to them, and the Nokia 2135 is designed with those consumers in mind," said Larry Paulson, senior vice president and general manager of Nokia's CDMA business group. "The large easy to read keys and familiar Nokia user interface makes the Nokia 2135 comfortable to use. The modern design and compact size makes it easy to carry, and the attractive price makes it easy to afford."
Although designed with simplicity in mind, a carefully selected set of features adds to the utility of the Nokia 2135 without adding any unneeded complexity. An integrated speakerphone allows the whole family to join in the conversation at once, while user-assignable ringtones can announce who is calling without ever picking up the phone. For keeping everyday life organized, a built in calendar means that birthdays and anniversaries are never forgotten, and a built-in voice recorder can store up to 60 seconds of audio notes at a time, providing an effortless way to be reminded of everything from picking up milk at the store to where the car is parked at the mall.
The Nokia 2135 is expected to be available in North America during the fall of 2007.
