Nokia punts 'understated elegance' talker

No bling? No problem!

Security for virtualized datacentres

If you’re not swayed by handsets for the poser crowd, then how about a Nokia talker that it’s claimed radiates understated elegance?

Although the 3610 Fold doesn’t boast the fine styling of HTC’s Touch Diamond or the functionality of the iPhone 3G, the Nokia device is claimed to have a “spacious keypad” that makes tapping in text simply effortless.

The handset giant also claims its Fold clamshell is ergonomically shaped, which should be…erm…handy.

A 1.3-megapixel camera with 6x digital zoom is built into the phone, and images are stored onto Micro SD cards of up to 4GB.

The 3610's ergonomically designed, it's claimed

Fold has a 2in LCD on the inside and a small screen on the front surface, which can display incoming calls or messages, and be used as an analogue clock.

Connectivity wise, the 3610 is a quad-band GSM network talker. But it doesn’t support 3G HSDPA connections.

Nokia’s 3610 Fold will be available later this year for around €125 (£100/$200).
