Microsoft debuts Nokia 215 budget phone

Microsoft has presented a new budget-oriented phone under the Nokia brand name. The device is called Nokia 215 and will sell for just USD 29.

The Nokia 215 will be available in two versions – with a single SIM card or with support for two of them – and will sell in the Middle East, Africa and Europe. The USD 29 will get you a device with Series 30+ software, 8 MB of RAM, a microSD card slot, a 2.4-inch display at 320 x 240 pixels (166 ppi) and support for the Internet. Unfortunately the device does not support Wi-Fi or even 3G but this does not prevent Microsoft from providing access to Facebook, Bing, Opera Mini and MSN Weather.

The Nokia 215 also has a 0.3 MP camera that can shoot videos at 320 x 240 pixels, Bluetooth 3.0, a 3.5 mm audio jack, an FM radio and a flash light. An 1100 mAh battery powers the phone – supposedly it has enough power to keep you talking for 20 hours and to keep the phone in standby mode for 29 days. The new Microsoft phone measures 116 x 50 x 12.9 mm and weighs 78.4 grams.

Expect the Nokia 215 in Q1 2015.
