Only one day after announcing its first three Symbian Belle smartphones, Nokia has now unveiled two new Series 30 handsets: the Nokia 101 and Nokia 100, which are presented as the company’s cheapest phones to date.
The Nokia 101 features dual-SIM capabilities, a 1.8 inch TFT color display with 160 x 128 pixels, dual-band GSM connectivity, MP3 player, 3.5mm headset jack, FM radio, and MicroSD card support (up to 16GB).
The 100 model doesn’t feature dual SIM capabilities, and it also lacks MP3 player and MicroSD card support – but other than these minuses, it’s similar to the 101.
Both new phones come with batteries that can provide impressive stand-by times: up to 25 days (Nokia 101), or up to 35 days (Nokia 100).
“We recognize that for many of the next billion people, a phone purchase is an investment. People are looking for a phone that offers great features but also one that is dependable. When paired with powerful and locally relevant services such as Nokia Life Tools, the Nokia 101 and Nokia 100 offer a unique experience that is simply unmatched in their markets at these price points,” declared said Mary McDowell, Executive Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia.
The Nokia 101 will hit the shelves before the end of September for 25 Euros ($36). The Nokia 100 will cost only 20 Euros ($29), and should be launched in the fourth quarter of the year.
