About the Nokia 1208

The Nokia 1208 is a dependable mobile phone which comes in the form of a classic style handset. The main colour of the handset is silver from the front & dark grey on the reverse. The user can express their individual taste by selecting either a black gloss edging or a bright blue coloured edging.

The handset is incredibly user friendly which makes this design popular for those users who want a phone to be a phone & not a highly technical communication device. The Nokia 1208 is a lightweight mobile phone which feels good to hold with its 102mm x 44.1mm x 17.5mm sized casing. The screen provides the user with a black & white display on a LCD screen complete with a green backlight & screen resolution of 96 pixels x 68 pixels.

The screen shows a large clock wallpaper which allows the user to check to time easily when the handset is not in use. The keypad comes with well spaced out keys & the keypad is dust resistant which prevents damage to the keypad. The user will find the one touch shortcut key a pleasure to use which allows the user to gain quick access to features including text messages, calendar feature, contacts details, loudspeaker & flashlight. The flashlight feature allows the user to lighten up their environment with a flashlight feature built into their mobile phone.
