The Nokia 2600 (type RH-59, codenamed Tongbao) is a Series 30 mobile phone announced by Nokia in April 2004 in Asia and on 14 June 2004 internationally, and released in September of the same year.

The 2600 was an entry-level phone that was marketed as being an easy-to-use phone, with a 128x128 color display. It is one of the best-selling phones, having sold over 135 million units. It has 3 games pre-installed (Bounce, Mobile Soccer, Nature Park), but some models had the game Millennium Mission instead of Nature Park.

It runs the newer version of Series 30 with color screen support. The 2600's screen featured a higher resolution than many other S30 models like the 1600, and as such, had more similarities to Series 40, such as the signal and battery indicators. A similar UI was used in the Nokia 2255 CDMA phone, though the 2255 had two softkeys.

This phone is also notable for being the last Nokia phone with the Navi-key, introduced with the Nokia 3110. The 2600 shares the same keypad layout as its predecessor 2300, but with a more classical design.
