Nokia 6208c stylus phone

Finland's Nokia has revealed the existence of the 6208c, a new touchscreen phone. The phone is aimed primarily at Chinese speakers around the world, and supports Chinese-language input from a stylus designed to resemble a bamboo slip. The phone's color display, otherwise described only as "large," is said to be modeled after a traditional Chinese ink stone. The rest of the device uses more modern design cues, and is built of material such as stainless steel.

The phone additionally supports character recognition for a number of non-Chinese languages, and has hardware features such as a 3.2-megapixel camera, with dual LED flashes and 4x magnification. Storage is being handled through a microSD slot, which supports cards up to 8GB in size. Nokia expects the 6208c to ship to a variety of countries, including China, in the first half of 2009.
