Launching the 1606 flip phone in the US was not enough for Nokia today, as the Finnish manufacturer has also unveiled a new CDMA candybar, the Nokia 2228.
In the Finns’ words, the 2228 is a uniquely designed phone. And that’s true, if adding a metallic half-bottom to a handset that otherwise looks very familiar is a “unique” thing to do.
Anyway, let’s move on to the features of Nokia 2228. According to the info found at the Nokia Press Bulletin Board, the 2228 measures only 12 millimeters in thickness and it can be used as a modem to connect a PC to the Web.
Nokia 2228 also has a LED indicator light, which will flash when incoming calls or messages are waiting for you.
Other known features of the new candybar include:
1.3 MP camera
Nokia media player
Speaker dependent voice recognition
Nokia 2228 will be launched before the end of 2008 in select CDMA markets, which most probably means the US too. Its price was not announced, but it’s said to be an affordable one. Logical, since the handset only offers entry-level capabilities.
