Nokia announced a unique, slender monoblock device for its select global CDMA markets. The Nokia 2228 combines a slim 12 mm compact design and ultra light weight, with some essential features, targeted for a stylish and practical consumer.

True multi-tasking is simple with the Nokia 2228. It’s an affordable 1.3 megapixel camera phone with a built in Nokia media player, supporting most of the common digital formats. It comes with several modes of messaging to make sure you can reach out to your friends and family, whether your preferred way of communications is short or long message, image or music. On top of all that, it comes with speaker dependent voice recognition, an integrated handsfree speaker and can be used as a modem which allows a consumer to use their phone to connect to a PC for internet access.

The slender design features a unique lanyard hole which has an LED indicator light that flashes with incoming calls or messages waiting. The LED indicator “pulses” in cycles at a user-defined interval or in the off mode, allowing users to always see if any messages await them. The Nokia 2228 is expected to launch in select CDMA markets in the fourth quarter of 2008.
