Cellular Telephones – Nokia Announces New Dual-Mode AMPS/N-AMPS Portable Cellular Telephone for N-AMPS Markets
The 232N combines the award winning design of the 232 with the power of digital messaging.
Nokia, the world's second largest manufacturer of cellular phones, today announced the Nokia 232N, a N-AMPS version of the award winning Nokia 232.
The new phone features a large 16-character display with permanent signal and battery strength indicators, four 'one-touch' dialing keys for instant access to emergency services, voice mail, frequently called numbers and the famous user-friendly Nokia menu interface.
In addition, the 232N is data ready via an optional cable which enables you to connect the phone to any compatible PCMCIA modem card allowing you to send and receive faxes, data and e-mail via a cellular network.
The phone also comes with a full complement of accessories ranging from AC & DC chargers to installed hands-free car kits with three watt boosters.
To support Digital Messaging Service, an optional enhanced service offered by most N-AMPS cellular networks, the 232N is capable of receiving and storing up to 20 short messages in the same manner as a pager.
These messages can take the form of short text messages such as CALL HOME or CALL OFFICE, the calling party's phone number, or a notification that you have a voice mail waiting.
The 232N even simplifies the process of responding to messages by enabling the user to call back a number left in a message or to retrieve voice mail messages with a single keystroke.
N-AMPS, or narrowband AMPS, is a system-overlay technology that allows enhanced digital-like features, such as Digital Messaging Service, to phones operating in a traditional analog-based AMPS network.
In its standard configuration with a 550 mAh NiMH battery, the Nokia 232N weighs 7.6 ounces, provides 1 hour 10 minutes of talk time and 15 hours of standby time. Optional NiCd and MiMH slim and ultra extended battery packs are available which provide up to 2.5 hours of talk time and 32 hours of standby time.
Like its fashionable cousin, the Nokia 232, the 232N is also available in a variety of colored and patterned faceplates allowing users to customize their phones to match their individual tastes.
With the 232, Nokia set the standard among AMPS phones for hiding powerful features behind a friendly user interface and packaging it all in a beautifully designed phone, said John Ferrari, product marketing specialist for Nokia Mobile Phones, Inc., a unit of Nokia, Inc., the US subsidiary of Finland-based Nokia.
This tradition will continue with the introduction of the 232N, which again will set the standard among dual-mode N-AMPS phones in terms of powerful, easy to use features contained within an award-winning phone design.
