The dual-band GSM Nokia 1200 and 1208, for example, each have five phonebooks on board. Both handsets have a 96 x 68 display - a monochome one on the 1200, a 65,536-colour one on the 1208 - and deliver up to seven hours' talk time, Nokia claimed. They sport a "dust resistant" keyboard.

Next up, the candybar Nokia 1650 and the clamshell 2660, both aimed at more aspirational individuals. They're dual-band GSM handsets with an FM radio and a 128 x 160, 65,536-colour primary display. The 2660 adds Bluetooth and GPRS connectivity. It has a seven-hour talk time - the 1650 can go for eight hours, Nokia said. It also has a built-in torch.
