Nokia Thresher and Nokia Mako are two new devices that have been created for the AT&T network in US. For the first time Nokia has decided to launch a new product first in US than in Europe.
Nokia Thresher and Nokia Mako both contain a quad-band GSM support along with three-band HSPDA. Also Thresher and Mako have a QVGA display and are named after fishes.
The creativity that Nokia has showcased in terms of branding the devices is applausable. Associating fish names to cell phones is truely something new.But we should not forget previous attempts by other companies that have been successful such as highlighting natural disasters (Storm by Blackberry).
Reviewing the two phones, first up we have Nokia Thresher, named after a weird shark. Basically its a slider phone with a 2.4 inches wide TFT screen. Thresher has a built in 3.2 mega-pixel camera and has the support for Bluetooth 2.1, AGPS and a Micro SD card expansion.
Second we have the Nokia Mako, another slider by Nokia. Mako operates with the same OS that is used in Nokia E71x (Symbian 60 platform). Nokia Mako comes with QWERTY keyboard but does not have a sufficient large screen, 2.4 inches.
Nokia Mako is also expected to launch in the first week of June, 5th of June to be precise and no update for its price is available
