Preview: Nokia 6208c Phone (Obligatory Chinese Stylus Phone)

Nokia 6208c: Stylus Smartphone.

Nokia 6208c: Stylus Smartphone.

In what is starting to become a yearly tradition, Nokia recently announced its latest stylus-driven smartphone, the 6208c. Heading to, you guessed it – China. Read the whole preview for a look at the 6208c’s fun features like a 3.2 megapixel camera and bamboo slip detachable stylus.

The 6208c continues the trend started by the Nokia 6708 and 6108 (no preview for the 6108, only a funky Chinese commercial, sorry) phones. The 6708 was the original Chi-lus phone and looked like this:

So let’s just say these handsets have come a long way from ye stylus phones of olde.

The design of the 6208c is supposed to have been inspired by Chinese ink stones. I don’t see it. I do, however, see something that looks just like the Nokia 6300, albeit a little squattier. Another surprise: the stylus, inspired by “bamboo slips,” looks like no stylus I’ve ever seen before:

Also doubles as a bookmark. Actually, the cool part of the stylus’ design is that you can easily attach and detach it from the back of the phone.

Moving along, the 6208c does have some pretty standard Nokia camera features – 3.2 megapixels, dual-LED flash, 4x digital zoom (heh), expandable memory up to 8 GB.

Expect the Nokia 6208c to grace the Chinese market sometime in the first half of 2009.
