Nokia intros cheap 207 and 208 3G phones
Nokia has announced two new candybar phones that should start shipping before the end of this quarter (hence in September the latest): the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208.
There are almost no differences between them, however, the 208 model has a 1.3MP camera on the back, while the 207 has no camera at all (and it looks like it’s going to be launched only in Europe). Also, the 208 will come in single SIM and dual SIM flavors.
The common features of the Nokia 207 and 208 include: 2.4 inch QVGA display, HSPA, Nokia XpressBrowser, Bluetooth, Slam sharing service, Mail for Exchange, MicroSD card support, and a 1020 mAh battery. Both the 207 and 208 can be used as portable modems (via USB). They’re also “easy to clean and scratch-proof”, and “durable for everyday use as well as more extreme conditions, such as hot or dusty environments.”
“The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 are designed for people who like a classic phone and traditional keypad but don’t want to miss out on smartphone experiences, like staying connected to social media and accessing the Internet. They offer a perfect balance of performance, features and quality,” declared Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia.
The 207 and 208 will be Nokia’s cheapest 3G phones ever, costing only $68 (€52). The minor differences between them won’t change the price. There will be various colors available, including black, white, red, and cyan.
