Nokia has revealed two new handsets with 3G support, the Nokia 207 and the Nokia 208. The Nokia 208 comes in two variants – single / dual SIM support.  It’s a simple candy bar type phone with numeric keypad.

Nokia 207
This is a single SIM (Micro SIM) handset with 12.8mm thickness. It is light weight (91 grams) and comes in Red, White, Yellow, Cyan and Black colors. The 2.4 inch screen is TFT with resolution 320×240 pixels.

There are no cameras on the Nokia 207. The handset comes with 256MB internal storage and 64MB RAM. Other features are 3G (7.2Mbps), 2G, Bluetooth 3.0, micro USB, FM radio and 3.5mm audio jack. There is no Wi-Fi and GPS.

The battery is 1020 mAh capacity with talktime of up to 12 hours on 2G network and up to 4 hours on 3G network. The Nokia 207 is priced at $68.

Nokia 208
This handset comes in two versions (single SIM and dual SIM). The handset is 12.8mm thick and weight is about 90 grams. The 2.4 inch TFT screen supports 320×240 pixels. The RAM is 64MB and internal storage is 256MB. This handset does come with rear camera of 1.3MP resolution.

Other features are 3G (7.2Mbps), 2G, Bluetooth 3, micro USB, 3.5mm audio jack and FM radio. Even the Nokia 208 handset does not support Wi-Fi and GPS. This handset is also priced at around $68. The battery capacity is 1020 mAh, same as on the Nokia 207.

No word as to when it will be available in India or the price. But looking at the specs and key missing features (specially the Wi-Fi) I think it should be priced under Rs. 4,500.
