Nokia’s just launched the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 (as well as 208 Dual SIM).

These are basic Candybar handsets which Nokia says for some consumers may be their first 3G handset. It also makes a good secondary phone especially for when it makes sense to leave your smartphone at home (e.g. peeps in Glastonbury). They’re very colourful and feature exchangeable shells and due to the design of the keys, is said to be splash-proof. The difference between the 207 and 208 is the 208 has a 1.3 MP camera. The 207 does not. The 208 also has a variant with Dual SIM.

To make it even more attractive as a secondary/backup handset, interestingly, SIM wise, it has a microSIM. It also features the contacts transfer app to get contacts from WP, iOS, Android.
