Microsoft unveils Nokia 130

Nokia 130

Microsoft may have axed Nokia’s line of Android-powered smartphones but it is not quite ready to turn its back on the entry-level feature phone market quite yet. The company today announced the Nokia 130, a handset that will sell for as low as €19 (about CA$28). As you would expect from a device selling at that price, many of the features found on a smartphone are missing on the Nokia 130.

Microsoft focuses instead on the Nokia 130’s ability “to last the distance.” It promises to “keep you entertained for hours” thanks to its built-in video player, MP3 player and FM radio as well as keep you connected:

If you’re on the lookout for a flexible and reliable phone look no further. The Nokia 130 is available in both Single and Dual SIM offering standby times of up to 36 days and 26 days respectively. It also gives you plenty of time to chat with friends and family with talk time for both SIM versions of up to 13 hours.
