In the States Nokia has launched the Nokia 7205 Intrigue in partnership with Verizon Wireless.

Described as "sophisticated", the Intrigue gets a hidden-until-lit external display, internal colour keypad and support for "exciting" multimedia and music features.

With a black exterior, there are basic controls on the outside of the clamshell design and when a call or text is received, the display "instantly illuminates".

Other features for the phone's US owners include hook-up with Verizon's V Cast Music with Rhapsody, visual voicemail and "Habitat" mode that lets users customise contacts.

Other features include a 2-megapixel camera, microSD card slot up to 8GB, Bluetooth and a low-energy charger.

The Nokia 7205 Intrigue is available now in the States for $129.99 with a 2-year contract. There's no news on it launching on any operator other than Verizon.
