Not necessarily a good Nokia to try for a seasoned techie, but for the budget-conscious, this Nokia phone can be a a good entry-level phone for those who want something simple, and economical in terms of pricing.
The Nokia 1280 looks more of an outdated 3310 but it has an FM radio feature on it. All you have to do is to plug in your cellphone's headset and you're ready to listen to your favorite FM stations such as Yes FM, Tambayan 101.9, Home Radio 97.9, Monster Radio RX93.1, 99.5RT, and other FM radio stations that I know.
The 1280's design can be somewhat plain, thinking that this is some kind of a cellphone built from China with odd design and less features, but on the exterior note, the dust-proof keypad and the scratch-resistant cover lets brings durability on the next level, so you can use it anytime, anywhere. Once more, you can change the phone's exterior with a wide array of cellphone covers for added style.
I guess this is perfect only for those who have a decent budget to buy a phone, but for me, I think this is not the phone I really want. Leave to the first timers.
