Nokia dual-slider on FCC is a Series 40 device
There has been a lot of chatter on the Internet about the Nokia 8208 CDMA dual-slider that showed up on the FCC site this week. At first I was excited to hear the words “dual-slider” and immediately thought it may be the new Nokia N86 that was coming to a US CDMA carrier. However, as detailed on MobileBurn last August this is just a Series 40 device that may or may not appear on Verizon or Sprint.
Series 40 devices can be quite good and feature packed, especially for those looking for an inexpensive device from their carrier. T-Mobile’s 7510 is a cool device. I personally can never go back to a feature phone though after using S60 and seeing how functional syncing all of my info to a central server really is to my daily routine.
