Nokia 215 costs $29 and comes with the Opera Mini Browser and Facebook Messenger built in, and can run Twitter and other apps. Despite that, it is mostly a low-spec phone — with a 320 x 240 pixel display, a 0.3 megapixel camera, a radio and a torch as its headline features.
But that is likely to help it pick up buyers in the budget market, especially in developing countries. And the lack of hi-tech features mean that it is a robust phone, built to be durable and with a battery that Microsoft says can last up to 29 days on standby.
0.3-megapixel camera, built-in torch, MP3 and FM radio support and Bluetooth connectivity. And it manages 29 days of standby battery life.
It costs just $29, and goes on sale in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia in the first few months of 2015.
