Nokia’s plans to bring a TD-SCDMA handset to the Chinese market have finally come to fruition today, with the announcement of Nokia 6788, which is obviously the company’s first TD-SCDMA phone.
Made for China Mobile, the Nokia 6788 uses Symbian S60 and has a design “inspired by traditional Chinese furniture and architecture.”
The known features of Nokia 6788 include: 2.8 inch QVGA display, 5MP autofocus camera with Led flash, and MicroSD card support.
Here’s what the new phone looks like:
“Nokia sees TD-SCDMA as being central to the successful evolution of 3G in China, and so is fully committed to this 3G standard. With a wide range of integrated China Mobile applications, the Nokia 6788 marks a new level of collaboration with China Mobile and offers enriched experiences to China’s 3G users. Nokia plans to introduce more TD-SCDMA phones in the near future, further boosting the development of this 3G standard in China,” declared Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, CEO of Nokia.
Nokia will launch the 6788 sometime in December, for a price that is not known at the moment.
