Nokia 6208 Classic has a touchscreen and an alphanumeric keypad
While Nokia N97 is the Finns’ first smartphone to feature a touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard, the unannounced Nokia 6208 Classic is (almost) the first to have a touchscreen and a regular, alphanumeric keypad.
Yes, you’ve heard well, the giant company is getting ready to launch yet another touchscreen handset under the name of Nokia 6208 Classic.
What’s weird is that, from the info known by now, the 6208 Classic does not run on Symbian 9.4 S60 5th Edition (like the N97 and the 5800 XpressMusic). Instead, it might come with an S40 interface tweaked to work with a touchscreen.
Design-wise, Nokia 6208 Classic is not what you’d call a beauty, but it’s not an ugly phone, either. Here it is:
I think Nokia might have drawn its inspiration from the old 6708 when creating the 6208 Classic.
Anyway, here are the known specs of the new handset:
2.4 inch TFT display (touchscreen, as I already mentioned), with 16 million colors and 240 x 320 pixels
Quad band GSM connectivity with GPRS, EDGE
27MB of internal memory
MicroSD card support
3.2MP camera with autofocus and flash
109.8 x 49.3 x 14.7 millimeters
Nokia 6208 Classic could be a handset destined only for the Chinese market, but until some official info about this appears, we can’t say for sure.
Obviously, pricing and release date are also uncertainties, for the moment at least.
