Nokia 206 a New Dual SIM Feature Phone Unveiled
The Nokia 206 brings together classic and modern-design, with a traditional keypad married to a stunning shape and a 2.4-inch screen.
It comes in single and dual-SIM varieties.
Nokia 206, aimed at low to mid-range users can take advantage of the new Nokia Slam technology for sharing items on their phone. This uses Bluetooth for transmission, but doesn’t require you to pair the two phones.
With the Nokia Xpress Browser installed, owners don’t need to fear running up excessive data charges when browsing the Web on their phone. It calls upon cloud-based servers which cut download sizes by up to 90 per cent, saving the owner money.
You can also share instantly to Facebook, as well as email. WhatsApp (in the single SIM version) and eBuddy are preinstalled, and there’s a gift pack of ten premium entertainment titles to download. In addition, there are 1000s of free and paid games and apps in the Nokia Store.
The 1.3-megapixel resolution can automatically resize pictures to around 700KB. This is great for a Facebook posting. It also offers an ‘intelligent imaging’ feature, which will tell you when self-portraits are in focus, and allows you to take a sequence of shots and choose the best. Video capture is also supported.
This is another world-beater when it comes to battery life, too. You can talk for twenty hours solid without a recharge, or you could leave it on standby for a whole month and still be able to use it.
