New Nokia 206 brings together classic and contemporary, with a traditional keypad married to a stunning design and a generous 2.4-inch screen. Like the Nokia Asha 205, it comes in single and dual-SIM varieties.
The Nokia 206 comes in cyan, black, white, magenta and yellow, and boasts a sleek curved form with a distinctive modern look. Who said a feature phone had to look old-fashioned?

Slam it to me
As with the Nokia Asha 205, owners of the Nokia 206 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. We’ll be going deeper into how it works and why you want Slam in a forthcoming article.
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.
Where the service is available, the Nokia 206 will ship with Nokia Life.
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 camera is optimised for content sharing with lower sized files. 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.
