Nokia's simple 6080 for Asia

Chris Ziegler

We don't have much to say about a phone whose "blinking light effect" for missed calls is highlighted as a primary feature in the press release, but for our friends in Asia looking for a no-frills Nokia candybar, the S40-powered 6080 might be your baby. For its intended market segment, the phone doesn't look half bad, sporting a comely black/gold or black/silver scheme (though we're admittedly a bit apprehensive about this blinking light thing). The phone packs 4.3MB of apparently non-expandable flash memory, an FM radio, a forgettable VGA camera, and EDGE in your choice of 850 / 1800 / 1900 or 900 / 1800 / 1900 bands. Shipments drop in the fourth quarter, but for the hefty €180 Nokia expects to charge, we've already started to forget it ever existed. [Warning: PDF link]
