RIM may have just started a new trend with their QWERTY-equipped flip-phone, the Pearl 8220 Flip. Nokia is apparently joining in on the craze with their upcoming Wahoo (internal code-name) phone.
It looks like a cross between the Pearl Flip and a RAZR with an added Finnish touch of course. The Wahoo is expected to come with an internal 2.2-inch 240x320 display, an external 1.36-inch 128x160 screen, 2-megapixel camera with flash, dual-band UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900MHz), quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, A-GPS, and a 2.5mm headphone jack. Everything looks pretty standard for a smartphone though we’ve still yet to receive word on what OS this baby will come with. Considering that Nokia’s E-series is devoted to business-centric QWERTY-laden phones, we’re pretty certain that this will be the first E-series clamshell phone from the company.
Details about its release date and price are still nowhere to be found.
