On second thought, maybe not.

On second thought, maybe not.

It’s good to know that Nokia’s CDMA handsets keep getting progressively better. Better looking, that is. At this rate, Nokia will have quite a looker in 2012.

Nokia 8208: Officially NOT coming to the USA.

Seven months and twelve days ago. That’s when we first caught a (leaked) glimpse of the Nokia 8208, Nokia’s first CDMA dual-slider. And while Nokia’s American CDMA operations desperately need a pick-me-up like the 8208, it’s not coming here. At all. But it looks nice.

The Nokia 2605 Mirage is slightly better than the recently announced 2608. Unfortunately, it’s still headed for Verizon’s bargain bins.

Nokia 2608: Cheapest CDMA phone around.

Nokia 2608: Cheapest CDMA phone around.

Continuing Nokia’s time-honored tradition of releasing dumbphones aimed at the CDMA market, the Nokia 2608, at first glance, actually looks like a slick phone.

If Batman carried a cell phone, would it be the Nokia 6205? That’s a tough question to answer. But either way, the Nokia “Dark Knight Edition” 6205 non-smartphone is headed (exclusively) for Verizon.

Preview: Nokia 3606 CDMA Phone

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

Nokia hasn’t exactly been much of a presence in the North American CDMA world. The latest attempt to change that sad fact has resulted in what I’d call the absolute quietest phone announcement ever, with the only noticeable mention of these two phones on Nokia’s press bulletin board.

Nokia to Resurrect CDMA Phones?
