Taking a quick jaunt over to the offices of the almighty FCC, we discover a great looking phone from Nokia that may soon be launched with an American CDMA wireless carrier. We haven’t heard any confirmation just yet, but seems that Verizon Wireless could be one of the more likely candidates to get this dual-sliding wonder.
The Nokia 8208 follows in the design footsteps of many of its predecessors, offering a slick and stylish appearance to accompany its healthy complement of features. Much like the possibly more expensive N-series multimedia phones, the Nokia 8208 is a dual-slider. Slide it up the conventional way and you get a conventional numeric keypad. Slide it down to reveal dedicated media controls.
Running down the feature list, you’ll also find 150MB of internal storage, support for up to 16GB microSD cards, 3.0 megapixel camera with flash and video, (market dependent) GPS, integrated FM radio, high-speed EVDO network support, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 3.5mm headphone jack, 20 hours of continuous music, up to 11 days of standby, and a 2.2-inch QVGA 16M color display.
Since this falls into the 8000 series from Nokia, I’m thinking that the Nokia 8208 won’t be the cheapest phone on the block, but that also means that you’ll be buying into some real quality. Stay tuned for more release info as it becomes available.
