Nokia today unveiled two new ultra-affordable camera phones– the Nokia 108 and the Nokia 108 Dual SIM costing $29 each.
Perfect for people purchasing their first-ever camera phone, the new handsets offer more than just calls and texts. The Nokia 108 also lets people take pictures and record video, helping them capture life’s important moments with an attractively-priced device. With Nokia’s Slam technology on board, content can be shared faster and more easily with friends and family via Bluetooth.
It support up to 32 GB of external memory and ensures there’s plenty of space to store people’s most cherished content. In addition to a built-in VGA camera, the Nokia 108 also features an integrated MP3 player, FM radio, Snake the game, multiple alarms and flashlight for staying entertained and productive while on-the-go. With exceptional battery life of up to 31 days’ standby when using the single SIM Nokia 108, people will also be able to enjoy the phone for longer.
The Nokia 108 extends the Nokia design story with its softly rounded corners and raised island keys, making it a pleasure to use. Available in Nokia’s signature red, white, black, yellow and cyan, the colorful back covers are also removable. Made with Nokia’s renowned quality and attention to detail, the Nokia 108 gives people an outstanding introduction to mobile technology at a great price, and makes staying in touch with friends and family more fun and enjoyable.
“We continue to connect millions of people, including those for whom mobile phone ownership was previously out of reach,” said Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia.
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 added Toikkanen.
With standby time of up to 31 days for the Nokia 108 and up to 25 days for the Nokia 108 Dual SIM, they also make for highly reliable back-up phones for occasional or emergency use. The Dual SIM variant enables people to select which SIM card to use when making a call or sending a text message, helping them manage costs and maintain network coverage on-the-go, without the need to use several phones.
