Nokia’s bread and butter in developing countries happen to be entry level phones, and most of the time, these handsets would not even be able to make it to the smartphone category. Having said that, this does not mean that Nokia has decided to skimp on quality when it comes to their entry level handsets, and a good example to back up this point would be the introduction of the Nokia 108 as well as its Dual SIM version.
The Nokia 108 would continue from where the Nokia 105 left off, where it will now arrive with a VGA camera without breaking the bank. We are talking about an extremely low price point of just $29 a pop, now how about that? Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia, said, “We continue to connect millions of people, including those for whom mobile phone ownership was previously out of reach. There remains a huge segment of the global population that has yet to own a camera phone. For the next billion people and beyond, we aim to bring new mobile experiences to ever-lower price points, and the Nokia 108 and Nokia 108 Dual SIM are great examples of this commitment.”
This seems to be the ideal “backup phone” that can withstand its fair amount of abuse, wear and tear without having you worry each time it is dropped. [Press Release]
