The Nokia 207, Nokia 208 and Nokia 208 Dual SIM combine the familiar ‘candybar’ design with Nokia’s signature bold colours and 3.5G-capable Internet speeds.
Mr Timo Toikkanen, Executive Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia said this in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency.
He said popular social apps, smarter imaging and productivity features such as Internet-sharing and Mail for Exchange support make the phones most versatile.
“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.”
“As our most affordable 3G devices yet, the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 offer a perfect balance of performance, features and quality,” said Mr Toikkanen
He explained that Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 are ideal for use on-the-go, with a familiar, alphanumeric keypad for speedy texts and messaging, and Mail for Exchange for staying on top of work email and calendar appointments.
The Transfer app, available now in the Nokia Store, allows people to sync contacts directly from their smartphone* and transforms the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 into secondary or companion devices, perfect for travel, he said.
The Executive Vice President said Nokia 208 Dual SIM has the added benefit of Nokia’s Easy Swap technology, allowing people to change SIM cards without turning off the device, to take advantage of more favorable tariffs.
He said the Nokia 208 and Nokia 207 offer faster and more affordable mobile Internet experiences, adding that support for 3G coupled with the data compression available with Nokia Xpress Browser help people enjoy rich mobile experiences at lower cost.
Mr Toikkanen said people can also use the Nokia 208 and Nokia 207 as a portable modem, simply by connecting the device to their laptop via a USB cable for Internet sharing anywhere, anytime.
The smart camera features of the Nokia 208 make taking pictures more enjoyable, with voice-guided self-portrait, sequential shot and panorama mode giving people more playful imaging options, he added.
He noted that 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 – helping people stay connected for longer.
Mr Toikkanen said easy to clean and scratch-proof, the handsets are durable for everyday use as well as more extreme conditions, such as hot or dusty environments.
The Nokia 208 will be available in single SIM and Easy Swap Dual SIM variants, while the Nokia 207 will be available as a single SIM option without a camera in Europe.
