Nokia introduces two CDMA handsets designed for new growth markets

Nokia 1255 monoblock and Nokia 2355 fold-style phones combine a modern, compact design with an attractive price point

Florianopolis, Brazil – Reaffirming its commitment to providing high-quality devices for new growth markets, Nokia today introduced a pair of CDMA handsets designed expressly for these fast-growing regions. Both the classically styled monoblock Nokia 1255 phone and the expressively designed fold-style Nokia 2355 phone boast strong feature sets not usually found at their entry-level price point. Both the Nokia 1255 and Nokia 2355 phones are expected to be available during the 1st quarter of 2006.

“Nokia has built a strong relationship with CDMA operators in new growth markets around the world, and we are pleased to be adding two more handsets to our lineup that will meet the unique needs of their customer bases,” said Timo Ihamuotila, senior vice president of Nokia’s CDMA business unit. “Even while meeting the value needs of consumers in these new growth markets, the Nokia 2355 and Nokia 1255 phones still deliver a wide range of features designed to enhance the mobile experience.”

Nokia 1255 phone: A classic value

The value-priced Nokia 1255 phone packs an extra-large feature set into an extra-small package. The 80-gram phone offers productivity tools such as a two-way handsfree speakerphone, voice recorder and a calendar with an alarm clock. Other fun features include two built-in games, 20 ringtones and a selection of user-selectable screen savers.
