True to their promise of connecting people, Nokia has brought the Internet closer to reality with affordable new mobile phones that are Internet-ready and work with Ovi-Mail.
According to Nokia’s consumer research, more than half of the emerging market consumers say that they would rather connect to the Internet and check their email over a mobile phone than their PC. As a response to the demand for mobile technologies that bring powerful solutions without a PC, Nokia developed affordable mobile phones and applications for the needs of consumers in the developing world. Unlike other email services, Ovi Mail accounts can be created and used on a Nokia device without using a PC. Since the launch of Ovi beta in December 2008, over 90% of Ovi email accounts were created over a Nokia phone.
The following new Nokia phones can allow you to create and use an email account (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly on the mobile phone, along with enhanced features normally found on more upscale models.
Nokia 2323 and Nokia 2330 Classic
Practicality and premium looks characterize the Nokia 2323 Classic and the Nokia 2330 Classic. Not only do these phones support Ovi Mail; the Nokia 2323 also has some high-end features like FM radio with recording, Bluetooth, GPRS, and an Internet browser. Comes in dark blue or black and will make its market debut in June 2009.
The Nokia 2330 classic is a low-cost camera phone with enhanced features like VGA Camera, FM radio, radio recording, BT and Stereo, and support for mp3 ringtones. Comes in black and deep red and is now available at all Nokia stores and retailers for only P3,600.
