Unless you're talking about S60 5th Edition, the terms "Nokia" and "touch" don't typically go together in the same sentence -- but over in China, stylus-based touchscreens make a heck of a lot more sense for character input than they do in locales with with Latin character sets. Following the bizarre (by Nokia standards, anyway) 6208c, the company's now rolled another China-only Series 40 model modified for on-screen character recognition in the form of the 3208c candybar. It's got EDGE, a QVGA display, and a 2-megapixel cam -- nothing to write home about there -- but on the plus side it features a 3.5mm headphone jack, that aforementioned trick touchscreen, and if you squint hard enough, it sorta looks like an N79. Of course, the dilemma of whether to sink the cash for it will never enter most buyers' minds; it'll never see the light of day outside China's domestic market, where it'll be launching in the fourth quarter.
