 Nokia 6208c Made primarily for the Chinese market, the Nokia 6208c is Nokia's third recent touchscreen phone, following on from the N97 and 5800 XpressMusic. But unlike the other two, the 6208c isn't a smartphone - instead it runs a variant of the S40 operating system which is more commonly found on midrange and low-end devices.

This is a stylus-operated phone - the stylus is mounted on the back of the handset and is meant to be inspired by Chinese bamboo tools. It's an unusual needle shape, with the eye of the stylus wrapping around the camera lens. The stylus is used with the phone's handwriting recognition software so that Chinese characters can be drawn directly onto the screen, but alternatively they can also be composed on the 6208c's keypad.

 Nokia 6208c with stylus The display is a fairly standard size 2.4" 320 x 240 pixel panel - apart from the touch-sensitivity of course. On the back is a 3.2 megapixel camera with dual LED flash. The 6208c also supports microSD expandable memory, USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 2.0. There's an MP3 player, FM radio and the 6208c has a standard 3.5mm audio jack.

As with most Chinese phones, this is a GSM-only handset, supporting GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900 with GPRS and EDGE data. Talktime is up to 3.5 hours with around 12 days standby time.

There's no word on pricing or availability except that we can expect to see the 6208c sometime during the first half of 2009.
