Nokia 6208 Classic Offers Touchscreen And Keypad

While Nokia N97 is the Finns’ first smartphone to feature a touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard, the unannounced Nokia 6208 Classic is (almost) the first to have a touchscreen and a regular, alphanumeric keypad.

Yes, you’ve heard well, the giant company is getting ready to launch yet another touchscreen handset under the name of Nokia 6208 Classic.

What’s weird is that, from the info known by now, the 6208 Classic does not run on Symbian 9.4 S60 5th Edition (like the N97 and the 5800 XpressMusic). Instead, it might come with an S40 interface tweaked to work with a touchscreen.



Design-wise, Nokia 6208 Classic is not what you’d call a beauty, but it’s not an ugly phone, either. Here it is:

I think Nokia might have drawn its inspiration from the old 6708 when creating the 6208 Classic.

Anyway, here are the known specs of the new handset:
  • 2.8 inch TFT display (touchscreen, as I already mentioned), with 16 million colors and 240 x 320 pixels
  • Quad band GSM connectivity with GPRS, EDGE
  • 27MB of internal memory
  • MicroSD card support
  • 3.2MP camera with autofocus and flash
  • 130 grams
  • 109.8 x 49.3 x 14.7 millimeters

Nokia 6208 Classic could be a handset destined only for the Chinese market, but until some official info about this appears, we can’t say for sure.



Obviously, pricing and release date are also uncertainties, for the moment at least.

Re: Nokia 6208 Classic Offers Touchscreen And Keypad

The Nokia 6208 Classic smartphone is a rare breed since it not only offers a touchscreen, but it comes with a full alphanumeric keypad as well. Strangely enough, the 6208 Classic won't be running on Symbian 9.4 S60 5th Edition but will opt for a tweaked S40 interface instead

This looks set to be a China-only market, but we'll take that rumor with a pinch of salt at this point in time until something official crops up.
