Nokia 2660 & 2760 - Future phone


Nokia 2760
 

Nokia 2660 & 2760

10 May 2007
Written by David Hall

Nokia have announced more entry-level handsets, this time itís the 2660 and 2760. Just like the 1200 and 1208, both handsets are quite similar and only have minor differences Ė so Iíve combined them into the one article. The brand new handsets are stylish clam shells, with dual LCD displays, an FM stereo radio, Bluetooth, GPRS connectivity, Series 40 user interface, and MP3 ringing tones.

The clam shell form factor of the 2660 and 2760 is the perfect excuse for two LCD displays. The sub-LCD on the front of the handsets is a 96 x 68 pixel black and white (2760)/black and blue (2600) LCD which displays things like battery and reception level, the date and time, new messages/missed calls, etc. The main LCD inside the handsets is a 128 x 160 pixel LCD capable of displaying up to 65,536 colours. The 2760ís display is TFT, while the 2660ís is CSTN.

Both handsets have Bluetooth wireless technology for connecting to a compatible accessory or to a PC for file transfers. The FM radio can tune into your favourite stereo frequencies when a compatible headset (included in the sales package) is connected to the handset. The 2660 and 2760 also support MP3 ringing tones.

The 2660 and 2760 will come in two variations Ė a GSM 900/1800MHz version for the Asia-Pacific, and a GSM 850/1900MHz version for other areas. Both variations of both models include the GPRS Class 10 data protocol for packet data, and have support for multimedia MMS messages. SMS support is also built in, with a T9 predictive text dictionary.

The main difference between the 2660 and 2760 is the inclusion of a VGA digital camera on the 2760. The camera is located just above the sub-LCD on the front of the handset, and is capable of still image capture and video recording. The Nokia press release states that the 2760 will have an estimated 10-11MB of internal shared memory. This should be sufficient for most users of the 2760 as VGA-resolution images and videos recorded by the camera will not occupy much space at all.

The 700mAh lithium-ion battery will provide the 2660 and 2760 with approximately 7 hours of talk time and 13 days of standby time. Both handsets measure 87 x 44.8 x 20.7mm and weigh approximately 80grams. The 2660 will be available in Q2 2007 in three colour variations: black, silver, or warm silver. The 2760 will be available in Q3 2007 in either navy blue, velvet red, sandy gold, smoky grey, or metallic black.
