Nokia 207, 208 and 208 Dual SIM unveiled: bring color to feature phones

Nokia 207, 208 and 208 Dual SIM unveiled: bring color to feature phones
Nokia has just launched three new ultra affordable feature phones bringing bright colors and basic functionality to those who cannot pay much for a handset.

The new devices are the Nokia 207, Nokia 208 and the Nokia 208 Dual SIM. All of them run on Nokia’s feature phone platform Series 40, and have access to services like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The three devices are very similar, almost identical. All feature a 2.4-inch display with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, 64MB of RAM and 256MB of internal storage expandable via microSD cards of up to 32 gigs. The three come with 1020mAh battery, lasting you more than any smartphone ever could. The handsets also support 3G connectivity and charge via microUSB.

Best of all, all three come in a choice of cyan, red, yellow, black or white.

The Nokia 207 is the most basic of the bunch as it does not have a built-in camera.

The Nokia 208 features a 1.3-megapixel rear shooter.

The Nokia 208 Dual SIM has dual SIM card support of course, and this makes its battery longevity slightly less. Otherwise, it’s identical to the 208.

Good news is that you’d be able to purchase the devices by the end of the summer for a price of around $67 (52 euro) off contract.

This is my personal opinion, when it's come to budget wise phones, usually i recommend all my friends get Nokia phones, especially with the release of the Nokia Asha 501, you can say with that kind of price it really does give you what you need, the only cons with it right now which is that currently most of the major apps such as WhatsApp still on developing, and it does not fully support multitasking. Otherwise without budget concerning, you can go for a Lumia 520 or any other Androids phones

Just got the 501. Nokia pretty much nailed the hardware, that is, it feels much more than premium than many other other high end phones from other manufacturers.

Nokia keeps releasing feature phones... Time for them to gear up for 1080p screens and better CPUs. I'll definitely grab a Lumia if they do that.
