Microsoft has announced a new entry-level phone that costs just $20, aimed at emerging markets.
The 2G-based Nokia 105 features a 1.4-inch color display, can store up to 2,000 contacts, offers FM radio and promises up to 35 days of standby time.
It weighs just 2.4 ounces (70g), has a replaceable battery and charges via a Micro-USB port. There’s also a dual-SIM version.
Microsoft said that it’s retaining Nokia’s entry-level business as the company “doesn’t have any other project that can reach” price-conscious consumers in developing countries.
The Nokia 105 and its dual-SIM variant will go on sale in select markets across the globe this month.
I’m going to get one as a keepsake to remind me of days gone by — in my experience, Nokias hold up surprisingly well.
