Nokia announces the 207 and 208: 3G data and month-long standby for $68

Nokia announces the 207 and 208, calls them its 'most affordable 3G devices yet'

Smartphone sales may have surpassed featurephone sales earlier this year, but that’s not stopping Nokia from releasing devices like the 207 and 208. Both feature a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, 3G (HSPDA, up to 7.2Mbps) connectivity, a stand-by time of over 30 days and a $68 price tag before taxes and subsidies. Where they differ is that the 207 has no camera (for security-conscious work places) and only comes in a single-SIM variant, while the 208 features a 1.3-megapixel camera and is also available in a dual-SIM flavor. Nokia wants to point out that these devices use microSIM cards, not traditional full size SIM cards, making them ideal as a second phone for when you want to “leave your smartphone at home.” Meanwhile, if you’re willing to sacrifice 3G, the 110 and 112 are even cheaper. Or, if you don’t mind spending a little more, Firefox OS phones deserve a look too.
