Nokia has introduced two new CDMA phones that are destined for markets outside the UK.
The Nokia 1325 and 1265 are targeted at the “talk and text crowd”, and were unveiled in Hong Kong at the 3G World Congress.
Designed as basic models, both offer hands-free speakers and voice recorders, but, unusually, no music player or camera capabilities.
Destined for Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa, the Nokia 1325 has a 64k colour screen, and can store up to 400 contacts and 150 messages. The voice recorder can only handle a minute and a half's worth of audio, but the phone has a talk time of up to 3.5 hours and standby of up to 6.5 days.
The Nokia 1265 sounds even more barebones, with polyphonic ringtones, a 60-second voice recorder, and standards such as calendar and alarm clock. For those who want a bit of retro styling, it offers a black and white display.
