The Nokia 207 and 208 follow the design language of the Lumia phone series, which means, they are colorful. The Nokia 207 and 208 feature 3G connectivity (HSPDA up to 7.2Mbps) and outstanding 30-day standby time and 12-hour call time. These phones can surf the internet through the Nokia Xpress Browser and are pre-loaded with apps like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and WhatsApp and others can be download from the Nokia Store. The phones even support Mail for Exchange and can be used as a USB modem for laptops.
