Nokia today expanded its range of classically designed mobile phones with the launch of three new handsets. The Nokia 207, Nokia 208 and Nokia 208 Dual SIM combine the familiar 'candybar' design with colors and 3.5G-capable Internet speeds.
The phones also offer social apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter, video
streaming through YouTube and Vuclip along with imaging and productivity features
such as Internet-sharing and Mail for Exchange support.
The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 feature alphanumeric keypads for speedy texts. The
Transfer app, available today in the Nokia Store, allows users to sync contacts
directly from their smartphone. The Nokia 208 Dual SIM has the added benefit of
Nokia's Easy Swap technology, allowing users to change SIM cards without turning
off the device.
The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 also support 3G coupled with the data compression
available with Nokia Xpress Browser. For greater versatility, people can also use
the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 as a portable modem, simply by connecting the device
to their laptop via a USB cable for Internet sharing.
The smart camera features of the Nokia 208 make taking pictures more enjoyable,
with voice-guided self-portrait, sequential shot and panorama mode. Sharing photos
is easy with the Slam feature that allows people to share images with another
Bluetooth-enabled device in just a few clicks.
The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 deliver outstanding battery life - up to 33 days of
standby time for the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208, and up to 20 days of standby time
for the Nokia 208 Dual SIM.
