New Nokia Candybars Stick to the Classic Theme

Some people are mostly interested in cutting edge technology. They want to see some innovative form factors and features. Other people want a reliable cell phone that just works, keeping it simple yet attractive. The “Classic” series from Nokia clearly caters to the latter.

Continuing with the trend of simplicity are three new candybar phones as part of the Nokia Classic line: the 6700 Classic, 6303 Classic, and 2700 Classic. As with other phones of this kind, this new trio doesn’t break down any new barriers, but they do what they need to do. In fact, as “feature” phones, they carry some pretty decent features.

Starting with the slim Nokia 6700 Classic, we find a full metal keypad, 5 megapixel camera, aGPS, and high-speed data for $310. The Nokia 6303 Classic is a “step sideways” from the 6300 Classic, getting a 3.2 megapixel camera, 2.2-inch display, Nokia Maps, and a 3.5mm jack for $177. And on the right is the entry-level Nokia 2700 Classic with 2GB internal memory, music player, Ovi support, 2-megapixel camera, and a $85 sticker price.

Look for all three phones to hit (probably European) retailers in the second quarter of this year.
