T-Mobile grabs Nokia 1661
The 1661 offers basic features in a minimalist candy bar design.
Nokia may have a big booth at CTIA, but so far the company's news has been light. Besides the for AT&T, Nokia's only other new cell phone in Las Vegas is the 1661 for T-Mobile's prepaid service. The low-end handset sports a simple candy bar design with basic features. The handset is dual-band (GSM 850/1900), which means it will only work in North America.
Inside you'll find an FM radio, messaging, a 250-contact phone book, a speakerphone, a calendar, and an alarm clock. Yet, there is one unique touch. On the 1661's top end is a large and bright flashlight. The 1661 will be available later in April. We don't know pricing yet, but we're sure it will be cheap.
