Nokia 207 Announced [S40 phone with Internet Sharing & No Camera]
The Nokia 207 was announced today.
The 207 is a new low-cost candybar phone running Series 40 on a 2.4 inch screen at 320 x 240 pixel resolution, and is the first S40 phone to have a microSIM. There’s also 3G connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0 (with support for Nokia’s SLAM sharing), microUSB port, 3.5mm audio jack, Mail for Exchange support, but no camera at the back, which might be useful for folks who work in high security jobs where camera-phones are not allowed. Most importantly though, it supports internet connection sharing, so you can use the phone as a glorified USB modem for your laptop, heh.
Coming in Red, Cyan, White and Black, the 207 measures 114.2 x 50.9 x 12.8mm and features a two-piece ‘cup’ design, similar to what the Nokia Lumia 520 has, where you can replace the back shell cover. There’s also the 12-key splash-proof keypad, Nokia Xpress Browser, built-in Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and WhatsApp. All powered by a 1020mAh battery which offers up a talk time of up to 4.5 hrs (3G) and up to 12 hrs (2G), and impressive standby time of up to 33 days.
The Nokia 207 will cost about $68 USD, before taxes, coming in Q3 of this year.
