Nokia 1209

Nokia - the name is synonymous with new cell phones coming in the market every now and then. The best part of the company is that the new mobile phones launched by it do not cater to the high-end users only. In fact, Nokia always makes it a point to launch as many starting-level phones as the high-end ones. Amongst the phones unveiled by Nokia in the first half of 2008 is 1209. It is a starting-level phone, aimed at first-time buyers. The 65K color CSTN display, 96 x 68 pixels resolution and up to five separate phonebooks offered by it is perfect for those who want to buy cell phone, just for making and receiving calls.

Features
Though devoid of the usual features of today’s mobile phones, like camera, fm radio, internet connectivity and music players, Nokia 1209 boasts of some amazingly new features! One of them is a pre-paid tracker, which keeps track of the balance of those who have a pre-paid simcard. Then, there is the feature of multiple phone books, which allows up to five users to use the same cell phone, with up to 200 entries per phone book. If that wasn’t enough, the phone interface offers support of up to 80 languages too.
 
Nokia 1209 is also said to be fitted with noise cancellation filters that decrease the background noise and provide improved sound quality. Though the cell phone has been equipped with polyphonic ringtones, it does not support the ones in MP3 format. The call records of up to 20 dialed, 20 received and 20 missed calls are available. Other features of Nokia 1209 include Standard Li-Ion battery, with talktime of up to 7 hours and standby time of up to 365 h hours, along with SMS and games options.
