Reaffirming its commitment to providing high-quality devices for new growth markets, Nokia today introduced a pair of CDMA handsets designed expressly for these fast-growing regions. Both the classically styled monoblock Nokia 1255 phone and the expressively designed fold-style Nokia 2355 phone boast strong feature sets not usually found at their entry-level price point. Both the Nokia 1255 and Nokia 2355 phones are expected to be available during the 1st quarter of 2006.

The value-priced Nokia 1255 phone packs an extra-large feature set into an extra-small package.
