Nokia unveils its slimmest ‘Internet phone’ yet, the $54 Nokia 225

Nokia has added another budget device to its lineup — the Nokia 225, what it calls its slimmest Internet phone to date.

The phone features a 2.8-inch display and is preloaded with Nokia’s cloud-powered Xpress Browser, which helps to optimize website data and speed up performance even over slower networks. Facebook and Twitter apps are also available directly on the homescreen, while there are five pre-loaded games: Block Breaker 3, Asphalt 6, Assassins Creed 3, The Avengers and Real Football 2012.

The Nokia 225 comes in both single and dual SIM variants, and Nokia claims it has a standby time of up to 36 days. It is equipped with a two-megapixel camera and features MicroSD support of up to 32GB. The device includes an MP3, which Nokia says has up to 51 hours of playback time.


Nokia’s latest device will start shipping in the second quarter of 2014 in “select markets” and is going for an estimated retail price of EUR39 ($54). It is available in five colors — red, yellow, green, black and white.
