Nokia 6208c has just been officially announced, exactly one week after we first saw the phone in a couple of unofficial shots.
As expected, the 6208c will be sold mainly across China, as it features support for Chinese language and characters, and a touchscreen display with handwriting recognition. According to Nokia, other select markets should get the phone too, although there’s no word yet on which these are.
We’ve already covered the specs of the weird candybar, but what we didn’t know is that its stylus is “inspired by bamboo slips”. With bamboo being a Chinese symbol of longevity, this might really help the phone’s sales. Helpful or not, what clear is that the stylus is among the weirdest I’ve ever seen.
Nokia 6208c will be commercially available starting the first half of 2009. Its price was not announced, but it shouldn’t be a high one anyway.
