Nokia flings frill-free phone at families

Ring and txt

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Nokia's apparently family-friendly 2135 handset looks plain compared to the LG Prada or iPhone, but is designed to offer the bare minimum of features needed for running a family or just staying in contact.

Nokia 2135: Fun for all the family?

The dual-band CDMA handset operates over the 800/1900MHz frequencies and has a 96 x 65 resolution display, capable of displaying 65,536 colours.

Many of its features are nothing to write home about, such as a speakerphone and pre-defined ringtones. But Nokia believes families will take note because the speakerphone allows parents and kids to sit around the phone and thank granny for the Christmas presents. Equally, the pre-defined ringtones could be used to screen calls from relatives without having to pick the phone up.

The handset gives 3.5 hours of talk time and 11 days in standby, while its one-touch dialling should appeal to lazy families. A voice recorder's also built in, which Nokia suggests using as reminder to "buy milk" on the way home from the office.

Nokia's 2135 will be available in North America during autumn this year, but it hasn't confirmed network availability or a price yet.
