Nokia’s bread and butter are not Windows Phone 8 powered devices although they would certainly want to be in such a position, but rather, the Finnish phone manufacturer’s main source of income hails from the ordinary vanilla featurephone for the man on the street in developing nations and economies. The Nokia 109 is the latest device to join such a featurephone line up, where it will be powered by the Series 40 operating system and operate on GSM 900/1800 as well as GSM 850/1900 frequencies.
Measuring 110mm x 46mm x 14.8mm, the entire Nokia 109 tips the scales at just 77 grams, where it sports a 1.8-inch TFT display at 128 x 160 pixels. Good thing there is a microSD memory card slot for you to take full advantage of, meaning there is no need to worry about running out of space too fast and too soon, allowing you to carry a cool 32GB of data with you wherever you go. In a nutshell, this is an easy-to-use and affordable Internet-capable phone, offering up to 7.5 hours talk-time. We do wonder why not throw in WiFi connectivity as well as a 3G chip, but that would mean inflating the price beyond its $42 sticker.Related articles:
