It's been so long since we heard the name of the king of cell phones a.k.a Nokia Mobiles. Back in 2013, the Redmond giant Microsoft acquired the Nokia's devices and services division, and made its re-entry into the smartphone market, while its previous attempt with Danger.Inc was poorly received.
Trying to keep Nokia on headlines, the Microsoft has announced its latest feature phone codenamed Nokia 222 and Nokia 222 Dual SIM which has the capability to browse the Internet.
In the era of a touch screen, voice recognition and Android, this feature phone comes with the nostalgic T9 keypad and runs on Nokia Series 30+ OS.
Moving on to the specifications, Nokia 222 and Nokia 222 Dual SIM comes with 2.4-inch QVGA display with 320x240-pixel resolution, 2MP fixed focus rear camera, 2G connectivity.
Supporting other features such as Bluetooth with SLAM feature which enables multimedia content sharing between two SLAM-enabled devices, USB 2.0, FM radio, flashlight, expansion slot up to 32GB and an 1100mAh makes it a worthwhile device in this price range.
In order to showcase the Internet browsing, this device comes pre-installed with Opera Mini Browser, Bing Search, MSN Weather, GroupMe by Skype, Facebook, Messenger and Twitter.
This Nokia 222 and Nokia 222 Dual SIM comes in Black, White variant and carries a price tag of US$37 (approx Rs. 2,452). It will be rolled out globally in the selected markets starting from September.
Launching a feature phone in the generation of Virtual reality and voice recognition seems to be obsolete. What's your thought about this, let me know in the comment section below.
