Microsoft Unveils $29 Nokia Phone, With One Month Battery Standby Time

Bearing a price tag of merely $29 prior to any subsidy and tax, Nokia 215 has been announced by Microsoft. It catches the spotlight not courtesy of its looks but due to its credentials as the most affordable Internet-ready feature phone to date.

Pre-installed apps such as Facebook and Twitter mean that users stay connected with their friends and family on the go. This would definitely appeal to users for whom this would be the first time using internet on an otherwise bland and basic feature phone.

Speaking of using the internet, Opera Mini Browser along with Bing Search would satisfy your browsing requirements with ease. Users would not miss out on weather updates with MSN Weather on board that keeps you updated on an hourly basis.

Pairing Nokia 215 with a Bluetooth speaker or headset is also an option. Say hello to SLAM technology which allows you to share content with another SLAM enabled device by bringing the two together. In terms of design, this is typically the Nokia we know. It looks and feels sturdy. Add to that the lime green, white and black colour options.

 

The phone comes in two variants; one with single SIM and another is a dual SIM version. Single SIM variant can last for 29 days on stand by whereas the dual SIM variant can last for 21 days on a single charge. For the talkative ones out there, this phone offers 20 hours of talk time. The entertainment with FM radio and MP3 player can last for about 50 hours.

Nokia 215 runs the Nokia Series 30+ software. Other amenities include a VGA camera and  external memory expandable up to 32GB. There is even a built-in flashlight for your convenience. That’s a bit of a standard with most Nokia phones and quite frankly, something that Nokia users have come to expect from these phones.
