Nokia C2-06 dual-SIM slider phone leaked

Images of what appears to be the unannounced Nokia C2-06 have been leaked by Hackintosh India. Judging from the photos, the C2-06 will be a new S40 device with a slider form factor that’s capable of accepting two SIM cards at the same time. A dual-SIM phone is a good option for frequent travelers, or for two people that want to share a single device with two phone numbers. The device appears to have a low resolution touchscreen as well as a slide-out full alphanumeric keypad. Given the lack of amenities like Wi-Fi or 3G, we suspect this Touch and Type phone will likely be launched in emerging markets. Hit the jump for two more images. More →


Nokia has another touchscreen device in the works, headed to China

Nokia has another touchscreen device in the works, headed to China

Regardless of what you think of pure touchscreen devices, most can agree that the addition of a touchscreen is a welcome addition to nearly any phone out there due to its convenience. With that in mind, information on a new device from Nokia has emerged out of China that may excite a few people. Named the 6208 Classic, the device apparently runs on a version of the S40 platform that has been altered to accommodate the physical limitations of a touchscreen without adversely affecting the physical alphanumeric keypad. With that said, it’s a shame this phone is nowhere close to being a looker but we still want to check it out. As for the specs, here’s what has been reported so far:

  • 109.8mm x 49.3mm x 14.7mm, 120.ig
  • Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/1900
  • 2.4″, 240 x 320 TFT touchscreen display, 16-million colors
  • 3.2 megapixel camera w/ autofocus, 4x digital zoom and flash
  • 13MB of internal memory
  • microSDHC support

We’re not willing to bet that the 6208 Classic will be officially sold outside of China, but hopefully some more capable devices with similar input methods get released in this part of the world in the near future.

Thanks, Dani!
