It seems as if Nokia has ripped off one of its own products as it brings in a new model to the Chinese market. The dual-sliding form factor, as far as currently available handsets are concerned, have only been offered in high-end feature phones like the Nokia N95, and soon the Nokia N96. But here it is in a new model from the 8xxx series, specificially the Nokia 8208.
The Nokia 8208 seems to be a handset that’s inclined towards music, featuring a 3.5mm headphone port, up to 20 hours of music playback, 150MB of internal memory and support for 8GB microSD cards. An FM radio is also built-in, and only the speakers have not yet been specified.
Though this handset seems to be headed straight for the Chinese market, it should work fine over CDMA-based EV-DO networks like those from Sprint or Verizon (provided that you can score one from the US in the first place).
Other features include a 2.2-inch QVGA screen, external music keys, built-in GPS module and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR.
Like the Nokia 3608, however, there’s still no word on pricing or a future release date.
