Nokia recently announced it’s ending the Nokia X Android phones, Nokia Asha and the Series 40 family but the launch of a $25 Nokia 130 feature phone for emerging markets is a great move.
With plans to sell it in Kenya, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines and Vietnam this quarter, the Nokia 130 runs on Nokia OS series 30+ and is available as a single and Dual SIM phone in red, black and white and only weighs 68.6 grams.
The phone has an FM Radio, calculator, calender, flashlight and weighs 68.6 grams. It’s LCD screen has a display resolution of 160 x 128. The phone’s size is just 45.5mm by 106mm by 13.9mm with a 1.8 display size.
On purchase, it comes with a Nokia Charger AC-18, Nokia Battery BL-5C , Nokia Stereo Headset WH-108 and a Product user guide.
Retailing at just Ksh 2,200 or $25, the new Nokia 130, is the most affordable mobile phone with video and music player in the market. It’s built-in video player, MP3 player and FM Radio and an SD card will make it the best phone for travel as one can load it with music and movies and won’t be worried about the battery runing flat again. It’s removable battery has a 1020 mAh capacity with a maximum standby time of 36 days.
Apart from the price point, the 3-day average battery life is going to be a big hit for guys living or travelling to rural areas not connected to grid electricity.
