nokia-asha-230[MWC 2014] Nokia might have high end smartphones for the masses, but this does not mean that they also neglect those who find the likes of a Lumia Icon expensive, and yet want an extremely affordable phone that can hook up to the Internet. The answer to that? The Nokia 220, where it has been described to be “super affordable” alongside a 2.4″ display, Facebook and Twitter pre-loaded that will certainly be good news to many people, Microsoft’s Bing search, and the option between single and dual SIM variants. Those who want a long talk time can check out the Nokia 220, since it boasts of a month of standby time for its battery.

Other hardware secifications include a 2MP camera, 2G Internet connectivity, and social apps. The single SIM model is going for 29 Euros. Apart from that, there is the Nokia Asha 230, which has been described as the most affordable Asha touch device to date. It will retail for 45 Euros a pop. Which of the two handsets would you prefer? Both are pretty basic handsets which I believe would help Nokia consolidate their position in the entry level market when it comes to featurephones. After all, it is worth the price of a good meal at a decent restaurant.
