The 1606 from Nokia is the company's latest entry-level CDMA handset. Designed with quad-band CDMA (800/1700/1900/2100MHz) support and a monochrome external display, this stylish little clamshell is light on the features. A speakerphone and a dedicated flashlight, which works even when the phone is powered off, are both handy features that the 1606 does offer.

The Nokia 1606 also features speaker-independent voice dialing and a built-in calendar and calculator. Users can attach voice recordings to calendar notes, or use them as alarm clock tones, which makes it an interesting tool.

The Nokia 1606 is planned to hit the market in Q3 2008, with unreleased pricing details, in either Sand Gold or Black color variations.
