Nokia 108: ultra-affordable camera phone

 

 

Those on a tight budget, but yearn for a camera phone from a global brand, Nokia will soon come to your rescue. Before you jump the gun, no it’s not an ultra-cheap Lumia, but a feature phone instead. The ultra-affordable camera phone is the Nokia 108, which will also come in a dual SIM variant. The 2G-compliant phone does not come with 3G, EDGE, or Wi-Fi support, so the only way you can share images is via Bluetooth 3.0 with SLAM, or a microSD card reader. Although India doesn’t feature in the local product listing pages, but rest assured, like all Nokia handsets, this $29 (Rs 1820) one will land in the local markets as well, by the end of the year.

The phone packs in a VGA snapper, and is being marketed as a secondary handset for people, thanks to its long battery life – 13.8 hours of claimed talk time, up to 45 hours music playback time, and 31 days standby. The handset will be available in red, black, and white, and the yellow and cyan variants will join the family later. For its price, it seems quite a decent deal.

  • Dimensions: 110.4 (l) x 47 (w) x 13.5 (d) mm; 70.2 grams.
