Today we spotted the new Nokia 3608c clamshell for the Chinese CDMA market, as well as a regular 3608 that is destined for unspecified parts of the world. While we are missing a few details and have only one photo, we did get this off of a public Nokia web server, so we have no doubt about the source of the information. We can also say with some certainty that this is a CDMA cell phone, not GSM, though we have no idea if it supports 3G EV-DO data like its dual-sliding brother, the 8208.

Key features of the 3608 include a 1.3 megapixel camera, dual color displays, and GPS support. It also comes equipped with external touch sensitive music keys, an FM radio, and support for microSD memory cards as large as 4GB in size. Bluetooth stereo support is also included, as is a speaker independent voice dialing application.

Nokia lists the 3608 as having a "Series 40 Nokia like UI", so it seems clear that this isn't really a S40 device in the traditional sense. It is also unclear whether the 3608 is made for Nokia by another company, such as has been done with Pantech in the past. In any event, the spec sheet claims that this fashionable clamshell cell phone will be capable of up to 3.5 hours of talk time or 11 days of standby time on a full battery charge.

No word on when the device will be announced officially or when it might be available for purchase.
