Microsoft Unveils $29 Nokia 215

Microsoft have lifted the curtain on the Nokia 215 – what they say is the “most affordable smartphone to date”.

Coming in at only $29, the 215 is being touted as being able to bring “online services to countries where connectivity is not readily available”.

Available in single and dual SUM variants, the 215 only offers support for 2G networks and has a 2.4inch screen with a 320 x 240 display, a 0.3MP camera and MP3 and FM radio support.

It can also be paired with a Bluetooth handset and speaker, while it can also run applications like Facebook, Messenger, Twitter, Bing Search, MSN Weather and Opera Mini.

Microsoft’s Jo Harlow has spoken about the new device;

“With our ultra-affordable mobile phones and digital services, we see an inspiring opportunity to connect the next billion people to the internet for the first time.”

“The Nokia 215 is perfect for people looking for their first mobile device, or those wanting to upgrade to enjoy affordable digital and social media services, like Facebook and Messenger.”

For those who don’t like waiting for their phone to charge, they will be impressed with the 29 days on standby that Microsoft claim the 215 can offer. Whether this will actually happen, only time will tell.

The Nokia 215 will be available later this quarter, with release coming first in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe.
