A simpleton called the Nokia 1508
This candybar only goes to prove that Nokia can expertly manage the high and the low end of things, busting out feature-crazy cell phones on one hand while sticking to the more utilitarian, yet sightly devices, on the other side.
The Nokia 1508 is a no-nonsense entry-level cell phone that imbibes the most functional aspects of a cell phone. So if you are looking for anything fancy like a big touchscreen or a snazzy high-megapixel camera phone, move on to the many posts here on Unwired View that give you just that.
This slim candybar is designed to ride the CDMA waves in its lightweight candybar form factor
and largish buttons for easy one-handed messaging. Along with a speakerphone, the Nokia 1508 also has a FM radio and a voice recorder, which can record up to 3 minutes on a single go. There is enough memory to store up to 500 contacts and 400 messages, which is not bad at all for a cell phone in in its category. Plus, this little guy can also hook up to the internet via cable, not the same as 3G I know, but still a worthy option to have.
The Nokia 1508 will definitely not burn a hole in your pocket when it becomes available in the third quarter of 2008 and if you are in the market for a companion phone to go with your high-end do-it-all, this is definitely an option to consider.
