At a time when drool-worthy superphones are hitting the market, there’s also a trend toward very affordable handsets
, as well. Nokia
has most definitely been working in the former space
, but it hasn’t forgotten the latter.
The Nokia 108, which is also available with dual-SIM
, is designed for people getting their first camera phone and costs just $29. The phone features Nokia’s Slam technology for fast and easy content sharing via Bluetooth
, up to 32GB of external memory, an integrated MP3 player, FM radio, alarms, a flashlight, and a 0.3MP camera (640x480) that shoots photos and video.
The display is just 1.8 inches, but there’s a physical number keyboard. Nokia says that you can get up to 40.8 hours of music playback or 13.8 hours of talk time on a single battery charge.
The Nokia 108 is designed for those who previously weren’t able to afford a solid mobile phone, so whether it’s someone in a developing nation or just your child who’s ready for their first mobile device (but not an expensive smartphone), the Nokia 108 offers some decent features at a very low price.
