ESPOO, FINLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/13 --  Nokia 207, Nokia 208
and Nokia 208 Dual SIM offer performance, versatility and
quality 
Nokia today expanded its range of classically designed mobile phones
with the launch of three new, high-performing handsets. The Nokia
207,
Nokia 208 and Nokia 208 Dual SIM combine the familiar 'candybar'
design with
Nokia's signature bold colors and 3.5G-capable Internet
speeds. Popular social
apps, smarter imaging and productivity
features such as Internet-sharing and
Mail for Exchange support make
these phones some of the most versatile at their
price point; perfect
for people balancing work and play. 
"The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 are designed for people who like a
classic phone
and traditional keypad but don't want to miss out on
smartphone experiences,
like staying connected to social media and
accessing the Internet," said Timo
Toikkanen, executive vice
president, Mobile Phones, Nokia. "As our most affordable 3G devices
yet, the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 offer a perfect balance
of
performance, features and quality." 
Smarter features deliver greater versatility 
The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 are ideal for use on-the-go, with a
familiar, alphanumeric keypad for speedy texts and messaging, and Mail
for Exchange for
staying on top of work email and calendar
appointments. The Transfer app, available today in the Nokia Store,
allows people to sync contacts directly from
their smartphone* and
transforms the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 into secondary or
companion
devices, perfect for travel. The Nokia 208 Dual SIM has the added
benefit of Nokia's Easy Swap technology, allowing people to change
SIM cards
without turning off the device, to take advantage of more
favorable tariffs. 
Consistent with devices across the Nokia Mobile Phones portfolio, the
Nokia 207
and Nokia 208 offer faster and more affordable mobile
Internet experiences. Support for 3G coupled with the data
compression available with Nokia Xpress
Browser help people enjoy
rich mobile experiences at lower cost. These experiences include top
social apps such as WhatsApp**, Facebook and Twitter,
alongside video
streaming through YouTube and Vuclip. For even greater versatility,
people can also use the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 as a portable modem,
simply by connecting the device to their laptop via a USB cable for
Internet sharing anywhere, anytime. 
Playful imaging features and Nokia durability add to versatility 
The smart camera features of the Nokia 208 make taking pictures more
enjoyable,
with voice-guided self-portrait, sequential shot and
panorama mode giving people
more playful imaging options. Sharing
photos is a breeze with the Slam feature
that allows people to share
images with another Bluetooth-enabled device in just
a few clicks. 
The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 deliver outstanding battery life - up to
33 days of standby time for the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208, and up to 20
days of standby time
for the Nokia 208 Dual SIM - helping people stay
connected for longer. Easy to
clean and scratch-proof, the handsets
are durable for everyday use as well as
more extreme conditions, such
as  hot or dusty environments. 
The Nokia 208 will be available in single SIM and Easy Swap Dual SIM
variants.
The Nokia 207 will be available as a single SIM option
without a camera in Europe. Available colours include red, cyan,
