Nokias 108 camera phone offers 31 day battery life for 29

first_imgSmartphones may be where the global mobile market is heading, but feature phones are still a big deal for developing countries and a good chunk of people who just can’t afford a large-screen, high-tariff handset. Nokia knows this, and is continuing to churn out very cheap handsets with impressive features that don’t class as “smart.”The latest of these feature phones is the successor to the Nokia 105 and it is called the Nokia 108. It’s a so-called camera phone that costs just $29 and comes in both standard and dual SIM editions. You get a 0.3MP VGA camera with video recording capabilities, a 1.8-inch 65k TFT display, Bluetooth 3.0, FM radio, on-board storage of up to 32GB using the microSD card slot, and MP3 music playback as standard.It’s not much to brag about, but this isn’t a phone that’s meant to compete with smartphones. It weighs just 69.9 grams, measures 110 x 47 x 13mm, has a standby time of 31 days, talk time of nearly 14 hours, and can play music for 45 hours. It’s a tiny, cheap phone for making calls that you won’t be too concerned about losing. Nobody is going to steal it, either.The Nokia 108 will be available in the fourth quarter of this year in a choice of red, black, or white casings. Yellow and cyan are also expected to become color choices next year.last_img read more
