Nokia Wahoo for AT&T leaked: a flip phone with a semi-QWERTY keyboard

I thought the Nokia E63 is the only Finnish novelty for today, but I was obviously wrong, as another new Nokia handset has just appeared, although in an unofficial way.

The handset I’m talking about goes under the codename Nokia Wahoo (yes, it does sound a bit weird) and it’s a slim clamshell that somehow looks like a Motorola RAZR.

The weirdest thing about this Nokia Wahoo is that is features a semi-QWERTY keyboard which resembles the SureType keypads packed by RIM into its BlackBerry Pearl smartphones.

Boy Genius Report has it that Nokia Wahoo might hit AT&T sometime in the future, but there’s no word if this will happen before or after the end of 2008.   

The specs of the weird Nokia flip phone apparently include:

  • A 2.2 inch internal display with 240 x 320 pixels
  • A 1.36 inch external display with 128 x 160 pixels
  • Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity
  • Dual band UMTS/HSDPA connectivity, 850 / 1900 Mhz
  • A-GPS
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP
  • Music player
  • A 2MP camera with flash
  • A 2.5mm headset jack
  • 80MB of internal memory
  • MicroSD card support, up to 4GB
  • 115 grams
  • 100 x 52 x 17 mm

Well, the handset isn’t a high-end one, but this will surely make it sell for a more affordable price. Price that, for the moment is unknown, of course.
