Nokia 215 – Cheapest Internet Phone from Microsoft launched for $29



Nokia 215

Affordable and simple analog keypad handsets have been Nokia’s way of reigning the mobile phone market in the past, and the need and demand for such phones only got reduced with the introduction of smartphones. But not everyone can afford smartphones, and the need for these cheap phones is still there in some markets. Microsoft, after acquiring Nokia, isn’t resting that legacy as the company just launched Nokia 215 – the cheapest Internet phone.

Offering 29 days of battery on standby, the Nokia 215 costs just $29 and with the built in FM Radio and torch, the phone has a Dual SIM option as well. The device has a 2.4-inch 320×240 pixels display, a VGA (0.3-megapixel) camera and Bluetooth connectivity, and to give the users all the basic stuff for what it is called an “Internet phone”, there are pre-installed apps such as Twitter, Facebook, Messenger, and Bing Search.

In several places around the world, a proper Internet connectivity is still far from reach, and for those starting with that, the Nokia 215 can act as a bridge before advancing to the smartphone level.

“With our ultra-affordable mobile phones and digital services, we see an inspiring opportunity to connect the next billion people to the Internet for the first time,” said Jo Harlow, corporate vice president of Microsoft Devices Group. “The Nokia 215 is perfect for people looking for their first mobile device, or those wanting to upgrade to enjoy affordable digital and social media services, like Facebook and Messenger.”

Taking advantage of Bluetooth connectivity, Nokia 215 has a feature called SLAM using which, content sharing can be done between devices, and hands-free calls can be made with the Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity.

The Nokia 215 phone will come in Bright Green, Black and White, and will roll out first in select markets in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe in Q1 2015. The battery packed into the phone has a capacity of 1100 mAh, and that is said to be giving 29 days of standby time in Single SIM variant, and about 21 days on Dual SIM variant, and the talk time is about 20 hours.
