Do You Still Have a Thing for Old Nokia Device? Microsoft Has Announced a New Device That Looks Like It!

While the whole world is patiently waiting for the new Android smartphone from Nokia, Microsoft made a rather surprising announcement today — A “we never experred it” type of announcement — Say hi to the new Nokia 216, a feature phone that costs about N7400 ($37)



Why would Microsoft launch a feature phone in this age of smartphones? I have no answer to that, but you should bear in mind that there are still people out there that consider “smartphones to be a luxury item,” and to them, feature phones are God sent.


Specs-wise, you are looking at a 2.4-inch QVGA display, 0.3MP cameras on the front and back. It also runs on Series 30 OS with Opera mini as its browser of choice, 1,020 mAh battery which promises a talk time of up to 18 hours and standby time of up to 19 days.

At least, if there is one thing we are sure of, it’s the battery life!

Creating history... One review at a time.

      I just pray it retails for the price you quoted when it gets to our shores. If it does, I’m definitely getting one!
