Nokia has a reputation for making affordable and sturdy devices for emerging markets that can’t afford most over-priced smartphones. Even after Microsoft’s acquisition, Nokia still caters for the millions of individuals who rely on their connected phones for emerging markets. The company just launched the Nokia 215, a $29 Series 30+, Microsoft says the Nokia 215 is their “most affordable Internet-ready entry-level phone yet.”
The Nokia 215 offers the user 29 days of battery life on standby, a dual-SIM option, a built-in torch, and FM Radio. As someone who used to live in a third world country, I can confidently tell you, these features are all you needed in your day-to-day life. The phone also come with 2.4-inch, 320 x 240 display, a 0.3-megapixel camera, and Bluetooth connectivity. The Nokia 215 comes with a number of preloaded apps like Twitter, Facebook, Messenger, and Bing Search, and Opera Mini mobile as a default browser. The phone only only supports 2G networks found in most emerging markets. The Nokia 215 will be launching in select markets in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe later this quarter.
