Dual-slide Nokia 8208 approved by FCC
When Nokia officially announced the CDMA 8208, it said the handset would not be destined for the US market, but for countries like China and India.
However, the FCC has just approved the 8208, as Nokia RM-384.
And while this doesn’t mean a North American release will follow, at least we know that, if Nokia changed its mind regarding the phone’s launch, a US CDMA carrier could start selling in the near future.
As you probably already know, Nokia 8208 has a dual-slide design that reminds us of the Nseries smartphones.
Its specs include:
- 2.2 inch display with 240 x 320 pixels and 16 million colors
- Nokia S40-like UI
- External music keys
- Bluetooth 2.0
- 3.5mm headset jack
- FM Radio
- 3MP camera with flash
- 150MB of internal memory
- MicroSD card support, 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
Lately, Verizon has released several Nokia handsets, so it might want to launch the 8208 too. But, of course, that’s just a wild guess.
