CDMA Nokia 8208 officially announced

Nokia 8208, a handset that we first saw in January, has just been officially announced by Nokia, coming as its last device unveiled during MWC 2009.

The 8208 is a dual-slider phone made for Nokia’s “CDMA markets outside the US” – like India, for example. We’re not sure why Nokia doesn’t want it to be released in the US too, but I guess the company knows better what it’s doing. 

The handset is only a mid-end one, but overall it seems to be a good choice for those who are into non-S60 Nokias. 

Here’s what the 8208 looks like:
