Nokia continues to make new inroads into the feature phone market with two new low-cost 3G devices sporting both keyboards and social apps.
Nokia has expanded its mobile phone range with the launch of new, high-performing handsets. The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 combine the familiar ‚’candybar’ design with Nokia’s bold colours and 3.5G-capable Internet speeds. Popular social apps, smarter imaging and productivity features such as Internet-sharing and Mail for Exchange support make these phones some of the most versatile at their price point: perfect for people balancing work and play.
‚”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,‚” said Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia. ‚”As our most affordable 3G devices yet, the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 offer a perfect balance of performance, features and quality.‚”
Smarter features deliver greater versatility
The 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.
