The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 both boast battery life of up to 33 days standby time, an unsurprisingly long stretch given the non-touch candybar design of each handset.

Basic exchange mail support is included, as are WhatsApp messaging and Facebook and Twitter apps. 3.5G internet speeds allow for basic web access too, with Nokia’s Xpress Browser compressing data for a smoother web surfing experience.

The Nokia 208 will also be available with a dual-SIM variant, letting you manage two separate SIM plans on a single device, without having to swap them out each time.

“The Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 are designed for people who like a classic phone and traditional keypad but don’t want to miss out on smartphone experiences, like staying connected to social media and accessing the Internet,” said Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia.

“As our most affordable 3G devices yet, the Nokia 207 and Nokia 208 offer a perfect balance of performance, features and quality.”

Expect to pay $68 USD (around £45) for the Nokia 208 and Nokia 207 when they start shipping during the third quarter of 2013. Nokia haven’t revealed pricing for the dual-SIM variant yet, but expect to pay a slight premium for the extra feature.
