Today Verizon Wireless and Nokia announced the coming availability of the Nokia 2705 Shade, one of the smallest phones to be offered by Verizon. This tiny flip phone will be available both with or without a camera and can be augmented with optional Xpress-on color covers (not included).
The 2705 version with a camera can shoot photos at 1.3 megapixel resolution, and both versions of the 2705 are compatible with Bluetooth wireless headsets. This latest Nokia features a micro-USB port and has a battery that is good for 5 hours of talk time or 15 days of standby time, according to Nokia.
The Nokia Shade will be available as an online exclusive for a limited time, and in honor of national Domestic Violence Awareness Month, people who buy a camera-equipped 2705 will also receive a free purple Xpress-on cover (usually $19.99) along with a picture frame lanyard - while supplies last. The Nokia 2705 Shade goes on sale for US$29.99 with a 2-year agreement starting on October 6.
