Nokia joins The Network

After largely giving up on CDMA in the Americas, on Monday Nokia introduced a stylish new flip phone, the Nokia Intrigue 7205.

The new phone is being offered exclusively on the largest US carrier, CDMA-based Verizon Wireless. It is the third CDMA phone here in the last year for Nokia, beginning with the 6205 and more recently the 2605.

It is unclear whether Nokia will have any impact on the LG and Samsung dominance of featurephone sales at Verizon stores across the country, but it is the logical next step after the patent settlement with Qualcomm.
