First Look: Nokia 2660 (AT&T)

2:00 /

The Nokia 2660 is an easy-to-use basic phone for making calls. It offers good audio quality, but it's slower than it should be.

>> Kent German: Hi I'm Kent German Senior Editor here at CNET.com. Today we're gonna take a first look at the Nokia 2660. This is a simple phone for making calls. It's available with AT&T. You can get it free with AT&T's contract service and you should be able to get it paid with AT&T's Go Phone service as well. We've had quite a few requests to review this phone so it just goes to show you that people are still interested in a phone that just makes calls. This is definitely one of those handsets. Very, very simple design certainly has all of the marks of a flip phone. It has kind of retro silver and black color scheme, really simple lines. On the outside we have a small external display. It is monochrome and it would just show you date, time, battery life. There is no side volume rocker so that's disappointing. I really prefer that when you're on the call. You adjust the volume by moving right to left rather than up and down and seems to me just a little bit counter intuitive. Inside, internal display low resolution, not a lot of color so graphics, photos they aren't gonna look sharp at all. Menus are pretty easy to use just an icon design; some lists inside, so very simple to navigate around so no problem there. Keypad buttons and controls, well designed, they are plastic so they don't feel very sturdy but I did like the spacious arrangement. The only thing we're missing though is a dedicated back button; we really like that to be able to move back whenever we want. Keypad buttons: they're mostly flat, a little raised against the surface of the phone they do have a bright backlighting and I also like that the numbers on the keys are pretty big. Inside the phone doesn't have a lot of features. It does have Bluetooth and does have voice recorder so that's nice. We appreciate those features but really it's about communication, it has a simple organizer, texts and multimedia messaging and for making calls. Call quality is pretty good, not spectacular but very serviceable. The phone was a little slow though, I felt like the process was a little sluggish. [ Background music ] It seemed like it took a couple of seconds to open things, seems unusual on a phone this simple [inaudible] but overall good basic phone for making calls. I'm Kent German and this is the Nokia 2660.
