Nokia seems to have found it’s mojo, sales are now a bit stable again, even with a serious fight being waged from all sides by cheap Android knock-offs from the low end and Samsung, Apple from the high end. Today Nokia announces three other phones in the feature phone end. These are Nokia 207, Nokia 208 and Nokia 208 Dual-SIM.

Main difference between the Nokia 207 and the 208s is that the Nokia 208 has a camera while the Nokia 207 has no camera. All else is the same, with the 208 having a dual-SIM option. Other efficient features like the Nokia Xpress browser, 3.5G HSPA support, Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp apps pre-installed, mail for exchange and internet sharing via microUSB cable.

With these phones, Nokia goes on with it’s microSIM parade taking them to entry level devices, they might just become mainstream now. Nokia also included the transfer app to import contacts from Windows phone 8 and Android. The design borrows heavily from recently released phones like the Nokia 501, Nokia 210 where the body consists of two parts, the chasis and the shell that takes all of the back and sides, this is also the determiner of the phone’s colour, with the front being black.

Also the key selling point is the battery life that promises a month of standby time, with 12 hr talk-time on 2G networks. They will be selling at $68, all of them in four colours, red, cyan, white and black from quarter three. Actually this is already quarter three.
