Nokia 6208c REVIEW
Nokia 6208c is a stylishly crafted device that integrates touchscreen technology with an elegant look and competent features. While it’s still not available in markets much beyond China and territories around it, the stylish stylus that it sports is something that has become a talking point among mobile lovers across the globe. So what if you think it looks like a bottle opener, it’s still innovative and unique.

Carrying an excellent 3.2 megapixel camera with a 4x digital zoom and a microSD slot for expanding storage, the details are far and few on this for now. But it won’t be much longer before we get a complete taste of the 6208c.Nokia 6208c is inspired from the 6708, the first touchscreen phone with a built-in keypad. And now the handset has been displayed on the Chinese site of Nokia. It will sport Nokia’s S40 OS and it will have both the full alphanumeric keypad and a 2.4 inch touschreen display. We don’t know if it’s a capacitive or resistive screen but the stylus present will suggest it’s a resistive one.

Other specs include tri-band EGSM 900/1800/1900, Bluetooth 2.0, support for tethering, a 3.2 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom and dual-LED flash and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The phone will be available in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, India, the Middle East and North Africa but the price hasn’t been revealed yet.

The first thing to mansion is that Nokia's corporate design didn't go far away, so Nokia is easily recognized in the 6208c model. When I saw it for the fist time, 6300 communicator has come to my mind, but obviously, 6208c takes the 6708's way, which is also a classic form factor touchscreen released in 2006. Secondly, 6208c is all about little creative differences in design. For instance, I can not bypass its stylus. This is the most interesting stylus by design ever I believe. However, I don't like calling it weird or strange because Nokia would not place a poorly though out product under world's consideration, and who knows, may be it turns out to be so comfortable to use, that you wouldn't like to change it. Anyway the idea was to make it look like bamboo slips. Not an ordinary design of course, hence questionable, so let's move to unquestionable pluses. One of those is Chinese hieroglyph recognition, write it down on the notepad and the phone will find the most appropriate hieroglyph in its library. Very good, but Nokia is not the first to have this sort of thing, iPhone also has this feature.
