CDMA Nokia 8208 officially announced
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:
Its full list of specs and features includes:
- Dual band CDMA / EV-DO connectivity (800 / 1900 MHz)
- 2.2 inch display with 240 x 320 pixels and 16 million colors
- Nokia S40-like UI (wondering why it’s not simply “Nokia S40”)
- External music keys
- Bluetooth 2.0
- 3.5mm headset jack
- FM Radio
- 3MP camera with flash
- 150MB of internal memory
- 1GB MicroSD card in the box (support for up to 16GB)
- Talk time: up to 4 hours
- Standby time: up to 11 days
- 101 x 45.2 x 15.9 millimeters
- 126.3 grams
Nokia 8208 will be available starting this quarter (thus in March the latest), for a price that was not unveiled.
