Nokia has announced the launch of three new models in its Classic range of mobile phones which team traditional phone design and interfaces with more modern functions.
The three new handsets are the Nokia 6700 Classic, Nokia 6303 Classic and the Nokia 2700 Classic, which revive and upgrade popular mobile phones from Nokia’s heritage.
The Nokia 6700 Classic’s features are known to include a five megapixel camera, Nokia Maps and fast downloads, while the Nokia 6303 Classic is home to a 3.2 megapixel camera and a 3.3mm audio jack.
Meanwhile, the stand-out specifications of the Nokia 2700 Classic include an integrated music player, a two megapixel camera and 2GB of storage space.
These additions to Nokia’s range are all set to be available in the UK at some time during the second quarter of the year.
Soren Petersen, senior vice president at Nokia, said: "The Nokia 6300 raised the bar in terms of design and premium materials when it arrived in 2006 and topped all sales records for a mid-range mobile phone
"The Nokia 6700 moves that bar even higher with a beautiful, slim design and perfectly balanced practicality. Our new arrival shares the same 'DNA' as its predecessor and we believe that it will be one of our best selling devices in 2009.”
Nokia’s courting of the market for more traditional mobile phones comes after a study revealed that millions of consumers are confused by the array of functions that now adorn modern handsets.
