Nokia Announce the 108, Ultra Affordable Camera Phone



Nokia have today announced a new ultra affordable camera Phone, through their Conversations website. The Nokia 108 and Nokia 108 Dual Sim. Both have near identical design and will come in red, black, white and yellow with a cyan version coming later on. The phones are set to retail for $29 before any tax or subsidies and will go on sale in the forth quarter of 2013.

The 108 will feature a T9 keyboard, a 1.8 inch colour screen and a VGA (640×480) camera. The “candy bar” style Phone comes in a design that is recognisably Nokia built. Nokia say “(The 108 will come) with softly rounded corners and raised island keys.
“Crafted with typical Nokia design values, the Nokia 108 is distinctively Nokia. Even at this price-point, you can feel the craftsmanship and quality that Nokia is known for.”

The 108 will arrive with Nokia’s “Slam” Bluetooth sharing, which allows you to share files with other Bluetooth enable devices by bumping the two together. Other features include MicroSD card slot, FM Radio and MP3 player.
