Microsoft has unveiled an ultra affordable feature phone dubbed Nokia 130 for an unbelievably low price tag of 19 Euros. The device comes with the timeless looks of Nokia phones with a Navi key and an alphanumerical keypad that are rarely seen with the popularity of smartphones.
As the Nokia 130 is a feature phone, the handset arrives with a 1.8 inch LCD display that comes with a resolution of 160×128 pixels resulting in a low pixel density of 114 pixels per inch. The phone comes with a micro SD card slot that can support expandable storage support up to 32 GB to enable users to store any content that they wish.
Though there is no rear snapper onboard, the device features a handy LED flashlight at its back. The handset runs on Series 30 platform and includes a 1,020 mAh battery under its hood that can deliver a fabulous backup of 16 hours of video playback and 46 hours of music playback. The highlights of the Nokia 130 are the inbuilt music and video players as this is the most affordable handset with such playback abilities onboard. The handsets come with 2G, Bluetooth 3.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity options and Slam feature that can transfer the content between two devices via Bluetooth.
Microsoft has launched two variants of the Nokia 130 – single and dual SIM models that are available in three color options – White, Red and Black. The handset is likely to arrive on sale this quarter and appears to have been targeted towards the entry-level markets.
