One of Nokia’s strengths in the past were their collection of candybar handsets, and those handsets were extremely tough cookies, so much so that the Nokia 3310 has gained a notorious cult following concerning its seeming indestructibility, having appeared on memes to boot. Well, Nokia is going to give the Windows Phone 8 operating system a pass this time around with the announcement of two more handsets that are tipped to ship this September at the latest, namely the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 (where you can see the latter above).
It is said that there would be minimal differences between the two handsets, with the Nokia 208 model sporting a 1.3-megapixel shooter at the back, while the Nokia 207 would miss out on a camera altogether, as the latter too, is tipped for an Europe-only release. As for the Nokia 208, it is said to arrive in single SIM and dual SIM models. Common specifications of the two include a 2.4” QVGA display, HSPA connectivity, Nokia XpressBrowser, Bluetooth support, Slam sharing service, Mail for Exchange, a microSD memory card, and a 1,020 mAh battery. Not only that, their main selling point would be being the most affordable 3G handsets to date, at a mere $68 a pop, arriving in black, white, red and cyan shades. [Press Release]
