Nokia announces the 207, 208 and 208 Dual SIM

Today Nokia announced three new additions to their feature phone portfolio, the 207, 208 and 208 Dual SIM. The phones look almost the same and have similar features with slight differences.

The 207 is a single SIM without a camera module while the 208 comes in two flavours, single and dual SIM with a 1.3MP camera on the back. Some notable features of the 208′s 1.3MP camera are voice guided self shot, sequential shot and panorama mode.

All three phones are powered by 1020mAh batteries, have Bluetooth 3.0 on board and 2.4 inch QVGA displays. The phone storage can be expanded with micro-SD cards up to 32GB.

3.GG HSPA speeds are supported by all three models and the internet experience is powered by the Nokia Xpress Browser. YouTube video streaming is also included out of the box. The social experience on all three devices is provided by the pre-installed Twitter and Facebook, and messaging is handled by the popular WhatsApp service. As usual there are plenty more apps that can be installed from Nokia Store.

A notable feature at this price range is the Internet sharing capability that allows one to use the phone as a USB modem on a mobile computer such as laptops or notebooks.

Email is enhanced by Mail for Exchange, which also syncs your calendar events and contacts. There’s also a Transfer app on board allowing you to import your contacts from other devices like WP8 devices or most Android devices.

Battery life is promised to be around one full month for the single SIM variants and talk time should be around 12 hours on a 2G connection.

All three models will be available in red, cyan, white and black, and should start shipping be the end of the summer. They should each cost around USD 68 before taxes and carrier subsidies.
