Yup... not all people really want and/or need phones that have all those hi-tech features. Some people are actually intimidated and/or put-off by all these. I like this phone a lot especially its torch feature -- thus making it a very practical phone.
I would just like to say though that I hope nokia makes phones with these specs but with a bigger colored screen and bigger keypads like the 3110. People, for example my dad, does not need cameras, etc. but a larger screen is a must because his eyesight is not that great. From the looks of it this has a small screen.
I have a question to ask. The filters there, i click "card slots" and it also shows this phone. So, does this phone support card slot ?
Hello all! I don't know why i even bother, maybe it's because it's a friday and i'm just waiting for my sallary cheque. Anyway, to answer why nokia still makes this kind of phones, let me give you some reasons why...
1. It's for the low end market
2. It's for those small to medium size companies to give out to their agents, employees
3. It's for kids that are going to use a cell phone for the first time
4. For elderly people who just wants a phone to talk
5. Back up phone or to be use for your seondary line
6. For consollation prizes
7. Emergency phone that is left inside the house.
8. For those who lost their phone and still saving for a high end unit.
9. To lend to your guest who came abroad.
10. For simplicity and practicallity....and alot more!
So for those wondering why...hopefully, you guys will grow old and get wiser and to be more open minded.
Because there are people like me who don't need all fancy and expensive gadgets.
After all, a phone is just a phone!
ugly phone! lack of many features and Nokia should have created atleast bluetooth or camera for this phone! a new phone but lack of many features which is soooo ugly! and the design looks like the old models of Nokia
I wonder why Nokia are still producing low end phones like the 1209. Okay, it's for beginners, fair enough but why still manufacture low end phones?
what's got to love about this phone! are you kidding me this phone is ugly! it lacks of many features including bluetooth, camera, Wifi, 3g etc. OLD PHONE! and whats the year today why create a old phone! Nokia should have atleast created a bluetooth or camera for this phone!
I LOVE this phone - it's one of the best looking handsets I've ever seen. I have been using a 8800 Sirocco which doesn't even compare to this little beauty.
As soon as this phone became available I sold my 8800 and got 3 1209's!!
As soon as I held the 1209 I knew it was a quality phone, the screen is colour and the buttons can be pressed - the technology is amazing. I have managed to hook up a 5mp camera to it with tape and bluetack and the picture quality is amazing.
The mp3 player is fantastic, tremendous sound quality, it only took about 3 minutes to actually fix my ipod to the nokia.
This is by far the most advanced and beautiful handset ever made--Nokia keep up the good work
for sure this phone is just low price bec. it has no features at all just only for texting which is ugly
No GPRS, No HSCSD, No EDGE, No 3G, No WLAN, No Bluetooth, No Infrared port USB, no camera! what u ugly fone! looks like the old brands of Nokia phones...
Whats the difference between Nokia 1208 & 1209? The same sucking sms memory (60 only)
The colour n da design luks gud.It wud hav been much better if nokia had added gprs feature in it like samsung c140 which is a basic phone like dis one.
no its not gd looking if you want a phone just to send sms and call buy and old phone then at least you get a good battery life
for its popularity it must have fm radio option. Also contain reasonable price.
no bluetooth, no camera, no edge, no 3g, very ugly phone! old fashion!
