Nokia has unveiled three new candy bar-style cell phones, the Nokia 207, 208, and 208 Dual SIM. All estimated to cost about $68 . The trio of handsets is small, clean-looking and available in four different colors offering 3G connectivity with a low price tag. The phones are aimed at users who want an alternative to their smartphone, or who are updating from an older phone but wish to

The 207 model weighs just under 90 grams, while the 208 models weigh just a tad over that.
For browsing the Web, the handsets include the Nokia Xpress Browser, which compresses data. There are also some pre-installed applications, among them being Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and YouTube, with additional software options being available via the Nokia Store. In addition, the cell phones are enabled to function as a USB mobile data modem.
The phones will be available Q3 this year
