Preview: Nokia 2608 Phone (CDMA-ified 3555)

Nokia 2608: Cheapest CDMA phone around.

Nokia 2608: Cheapest CDMA phone around.

Continuing Nokia’s time-honored tradition of releasing dumbphones aimed at the CDMA market, the Nokia 2608, at first glance, actually looks like a slick phone. It’s very similar to the 3555, complete with the seamless back, although the keypad more closely resembles a Nokia N90 than anything. And it looks extremely thick.

In terms of features, however, the 2608 is pretty lacking. There is the standard integrated loudspeaker, “quick-press” flashlight, FM radio, some LED indicators for missed calls (something I wish was on every phone), and voice recorder. Nothing really out of the ordinary, except “quick touch access to one’s PC”, which I’m still trying to puzzle out. Is it VNC? Or simply a USB cable connection?

The Nokia 2608 hasn’t been priced yet, but the official bulletin board press release states that it’s the cheapest CDMA phone around. Expect the phone to hit select markets (not including the USA) some time in the first quarter of 2009, when it’ll be overshadowed by the release of the N97.
