Some people don’t need all the fancy bells and whistles of an Apple iPhone. They have no interest in the security of a BlackBerry or the open source nature of Android. They just want a simple phone that works. For those people, Fido just may have the ticket with the Nokia 2720. Perhaps the most appealing factor is its price.
Assuming that you are willing to sign a two-year contract with Canada’s dog, you can land the Nokia 2720 for zero dollars and zero cents. Yup, it’s another one of those “free with contract” handsets, but you do get a reasonable set of features.
The rather basic-looking clamshell has an external display and an integrated handsfree speaker, so I think you can use it with the phone closed too. Other highlights include the 1.3 megapixel camera, FM radio, Bluetooth, and a large keypad.
The Fido website is currently showing that the Nokia 2720 is currently “not in stock,” so you may need to hit up the customer service line or your local kiosk to get it. Opt out of a contract and you can have the phone for $70 outright.
