The Nokia 3610 Fold offers a flip phone design and mid-range features.

Nokia goes flippable with the Nokia 3610 Fold. Nokia

Nokia quietly rolled out its new 3610 flip phone Tuesday. Also called the "Fold" (for obvious reasons), it has a slim design that reminds us of both the Nokia 3555 and 6555. Features are solidly mid-range; inside you'll find a 1.3-megapixel camera, organizer features, text and multimedia messaging, a microSD card slot, and a 262,000-color display.

It should be available in October for about $185. We don't know yet if it will arrive on North American shores, but its quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900; EDGE) supports suggests that it might.
