Cheap Nokia 2730 classic, 2720 fold and 7020 announced

Nokia has just unveiled three new phones targeted at emerging markets: Nokia 2730 classic, Nokia 7020 and Nokia 2720 fold.

All phones are “Internet-ready”, featuring Ovi Mail and Nokia Life Tools – the two services first announced in November 2008.

They will be commercially available starting the third quarter of 2009, except for the 7020, which should go on sale in the fourth quarter of the year. 

Nokia 2730 classic is, as its name suggests, a candybar – one that looks fairly good:


The specs of Nokia 2730 classic include 3G, a 2 inch QVGA screen, a 3.5mm headset jack and expandable memory. The handset will be sold for €80 ($107), before taxes and subsidies.

Nokia 7020 is a clamshell that “uses light, color and metal finishes to convey personal style”.



It will come for €90 ($120), with features like a 2.2 inch QVGA internal display, FM radio and a 2MP camera.

Lastly, Nokia 2720 fold is an ultra-basic handset, sporting a 120 x 160 pixels internal display, a 1.3MP camera and a “mirror-effect design”.



The 2720 fold will be sold for only €55 ($74).

“With our longstanding commitment to emerging markets, a Nokia customer can be confident that any product we offer meets a strict and consistent set of high-quality standards.  This is particularly important in markets where technical assistance and repair shops are not easily accessible,” said Alex Lambeek, Vice President at Nokia.
