Around the world, people trusted Nokia and was the preferred brand when it was about purchasing new phones until the smart phones came in. People who cannot afford to buy these smart phones go for those Nokia non-touch screen handsets. Microsoft after eight months of purchasing Nokia is still confident about the Nokia’s legacy and wants to capitalize on it.
The US based software giant has introduced Nokia 215 phone. At a time when all of the companies are introducing new model of their smart phones to capture the market share, almost every day, it surprises everyone.
The new Nokia 215 mobile phone will cost around $29 pre-tax. The model has been launched for the emerging markets and especially targeted at those consumers and areas where there is power crisis and frequent power outages.
Also, as per the executive director of Strategy Analytics, Neil Mawston, the overall cost for development, including patent licensing and components, are too high for Smartphone to compete.
The phone boasts about 29 days of battery life on standby that makes it stand out. Apart from it has other general features that is dual-SIM option, built-in torch, FM Radio player, Bluetooth connectivity and 0.3 megapixel camera.
It comes with Opera Mini browser and with pre-installed apps such as Twitter, Facebook Messenger and Bing search. Microsoft says that it is “most affordable Internet-ready entry-level phone yet,” and supports 2G networks, only.
The cellphone is to be used as a second one.
