Every mobile phone news site seemed enthusiastic about the Nokia Wahoo leaked phone, but I seem to be the only one pointing fingers and saying that this is only a clone. I mean, come on, that keypad is so copied from BlackBerry Flip 8220 and it’s surprising that Nokia did something like this… Other than that, the Wahoo phone disappoints me, with its tiny display (internal – 2.2 inches, 240 x 320 pixels, TFT).

Nokia Wahoo also comes with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support plus dual-band UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900 MHz), a half QWERTY keypad and an external display (1.36 inches, 128 x 160 pixels, TFT). The handset incorporates a 2 megapixel camera and also features Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, a 2.5 mm headset jack (whyyy?) and a battery with 4 hours of UMTS talk time.

Wahoo will hit AT&T pretty soon and its name seems to be somehow related to Yahoo!, so we might see some services from the mauve giant on the handset.

    Didn’t say that the BlackBerry is the first to use it, but that Nokia copied its design and M600i’s design, if you want.
