Verizon and Nokia launch the 7205 Intrigue


The only Nokia handsets Verizon ever picks up are the flip phones, and now they’ve got a new one on top of the chain: the Nokia 7205 Intrigue.

It’s your basic flip at its core, but they’ve wrapped it up in an ultra-slick shell and tossed in a new “Habitat Mode” screen. On this new Verizon-exclusive screen, “contacts are presented in chronological order, providing an engaging and intuitive way for customers to track, visualize and connect with their contacts”. Yeah, we have no idea what’s new about that either.

The Intrigue is available in Black/Silver or Black/Pink for $180 bucks on a 2-year contract, and VZW will lop an additional $50 off if you buy it online. Specs after the jump.

The Specs:

  • EV-DO, Rev A
  • MP3, WMA, AAC and AAC+ (as long as it’s not DRM’d) playback
  • External touch music keys
  • 2.5mm Headset jack (Gah! So close. One more millimeter, and we wouldn’t need an adapter)
  • TTY
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • Bluetooth
  • 3.56″(h) x 1.85″(w) x 0.55″(d) at 3.19 oz
  • 1.9″ PMOLED display on the front, 2.2″ QVGA display on the inside
