In our other article for today we have a look at the Nokia 2705 Shade which came out in 2009. It is a simple handset from the Finnish manufacturer which measures 3.32 x 1.70 x 0.64 inches and it weighs 2.6 ounces, which means that we are dealing with a small and light handset. It adopts a stamp-sized external display that has a resolution of 160 x 128 pixels and can show up to 262,144 colors.
The external display is capable of showing photo caller ID and it also has support for photo caller ID and works as a viewfinder for taking self-portraits. You will notice the camera lens sitting above this display, next to a small speaker. On the left side of the Shade is the volume rocker along with a voice dialing control, a 2.5 mm headset jack and the microUSB port.
Opening the phone reveals a 2-inch display that has a resolution of 220 x 176 pixels and offers support for up to 262,144 colors. It is not a very vibrant display but it will suffice for this type of phone. The colors seem to be quite bright, while the photos and graphics appear relatively sharp.
As for the navigation array, this would have to be quite spacious and extremely easy to use. The phone has a 4-way toggle with an OK button in the center, along with a speakerphone button, two soft keys and a camera shutter. Even though the keys are flush, you shouldn’t have any problems using them. The keypad buttons are flush and have a plastic feel, and they are quite spacious plus you’ll have no problems typing during the night since the backlighting is very powerful.
The Nokia 2705 Shade has a spacious 1,000-entry phonebook and in each of these entries there’s enough room for four phone numbers and two e-mails. Some of the other features of the device that we should mention include a notepad, world clock, stopwatch, calendar, calculator, text and multimedia messaging and a vibrate mode.
The 1.3 mpx camera doesn’t have a flash and it can take photos up to a maximum resolution of 1,280 x 960 pixels. Some of the options offered include a brightness meter, self-timer, three color effects, four white balance modes, along with three shutter sounds + silent. The quality of the photos is on the average side because even though the colors are natural, the images will look quite dark, despite the fact that there is very little image nose.
The battery of the Nokia 2705 Shade has a rated talk time of 5 hours and it should last up to 15 days in standby. Its digital SAR rating is of 1.22 W/kg.
