Along with their Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 smartphones, Nokia has also officially unveiled two new feature phones, the Nokia 301 and the Nokia 105. These devices, which are not too impressive specs-wise and hardly capable of an extreme workload, are the company’s attempt to control the smartphone middle market.
These models are on the cheap side and geared probably more towards high-risk individuals like children or clumsy people. The Nokia 301 will cost about $86, while the 105 — the company’s cheapest mobile device ever — will set you back roughly $20.
The Nokia 301 has a 3.2 MP rear camera with intelligent photo software which includes panoramic shots, sequential shots, self-portrait mode and self-timer. It features a 2.4-inch QVGA display, Nokia Xpress Browser, Nokia Slam for exchanging media, 256MB of hard drive space and a MicroSD card slot (for up to 32GB additional storage.) It will be offered in dual SIM or single SIM versions, both in at least five colors, including white, black, yellow, cyan and magenta.)
The Nokia 105 has a 1.45-inch colored display and it features FM radio, dust and splash-proof keyboard and some simpler, practical and more-traditional tools, such as multiple alarm clocks, a flashlight and a long-lasting (up to 35 days) battery when the phones in standby. It sounds a lot like my first cellphone — I wonder if comes with that awesome snake game.
The company also mentions that with these two phones, they are officially saying ‘farewell’ to black-and-white screens. Congrats, Nokia.
So there you have it — if you want to give your kid or your elderly family member, perhaps, a cellphone and realize that they will never need a Galaxy S or HTC One, these additions to Nokia’s mid-range markets will do the trick. Either model will cost you a modest amount of money and for what they do, the price is worth it.
