Things have not been going too well for Nokia since Android and iOS took over the mobile market. With almost every smartphone failing to sell substantially, Nokia seems to be in a fix. Traditionally, Selling budget phones have been the bread and butter for Nokia due to their good build quality and long life. Seems like Nokia has finally decided to focus back on the budget Phones.
Nokia has unveiled the new Nokia 220 at Mobile World Congress 2014. It has a 2.4 inch QVGA display, A 2MP camera and is internet ready. It comes preinstalled with majority of internet apps such as Facebook and twitter. The phone can connect to a 2G internet network and also sports a internet browser integrated with Bing search. The icing on the cake is the battery of the phone. The phone can stay alive for a month on a single charge and can also give you 51 hours of uninterrupted music playback. Considering it costs just 40$ or 29 Euros, the specs are really impressive.
Coming to the design and the aesthetics, the phone comes in 5 colours as shown in the picture above. The phone has a polycarbonate unibody shell with smooth corners giving it a very comfortable feel when you hold it in your hand. Overall, the phone looks very neat and handles well.
The phone is specifically targeted towards the budget consumers and people who want the maximum bang for their buck. The phone will definitely attract a lot of people due to its reasonable low price and great features. The phone will be available worldwide in a week’s time.
Do you like the new phone by Nokia? Let us know in the comments section.
Nokia has always been user friendly. Except for a few hiccups during last year, due to market slump and takeover drama, sailing was smooth. Now that they are thinking of budget phones with a bit of popular apps n added battery life, it’s going to be the icing on the cake as analysed by you
rubbish! phone can have as good specs as possible, but without WiFi nowadays it’s a useless piece of crap. keeping in mind it connects to inet on 2G only!!! WiFi in such a phone IS A MUST!!! as on 2G nowadays browsing is impossible it will take waaaay too long. it would be more successfull if it would have WiFi and cost $10 more.
It’s not a “must”. Not everybody lives like you do, or the group of people you associate with.
I plan to buy myself one as soon as possible. It looks like everything this college student wants and needs in a phone. Now, if only it had a QWERTY keyboard and was waterproof! It would be perfect. I think I’ll get the orange/red one.
Will it be available also in Philippines soon?
Does it support whatsapp or not ???
I like it very much because it has low price, but I like it more because of the battery. Also I’m happy for watching, after a long time, a phone with buttons (keys).
