nokia 130There was a time when Nokia conquered every single phone range – whether from the entry level to the mid-range or to the high end markets, and this happened way before there was this thing known as the iPhone. Having said that, while smartphones are nice to touch and lovely to use, most of the world’s population are unable to afford one high end model if you were to take their salaries and living expenses into consideration. This means there is still a huge market for entry level handsets that simply work – to send and receive text messages as well as take incoming calls and make them. The Nokia 130 joins a long list of bread-and-butter devices from the Microsoft-owned company.

It is so cheap, it costs just 19 Euros – unlocked, and is also a decent portable media player (if you do not mind the rather tiny 1.8” color display, that is) as it sports a built-in video player, MP3 player and FM Radio. Watching movies are as easy as slotting in an SD card that contains the movie(s) of your choice, and the battery will be able to last for a good 16 hours of non-stop video playback, now how about that?

As for audio playback, we are looking at a continuous performance of up to 46 hours, not to mention having the ability to share content through the SD card, USB or Bluetooth connectivity. Arriving in both single and dual SIM models, you will find the Nokia 130 arrive in red, black and white colors as it hits selected markets later this quarter. [Press Release]
