Nokia Unveils Dual SIM Nokia 110 and Nokia 112

Nokia 112Finally the word is out. Nokia has officially unveiled two feature phones from Pakistan namely Nokia 110 and Nokia 112.

Unlike we were expecting full touch S40 series phones from Asha series, Nokia has introduced low end devices – that it is calling for the next billion – Nokia 110, and Nokia 112 – entry level phones with optimized internet accessibility.

Aim is to target those customers who don’t have pockets to afford a Smartphone but they want to access internet. This is probably why Nokia emphasized so much on the benefits of internet during the opening notes.

Another aim to launch low-end devices (priced around PKR 4,000) is to compete with Chinese made phones, which by the way offer far better features than these newly launched devices.

Both devices will offer one click access to Facebook, Twitter and social media networks from home screen. Nokia claims that internet experience with Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 will be smooth thanks to the Nokia’s Browser that allows users to consume less data by up to 90%, by compressing websites in the cloud.

The devices all feature a 1.8" display (said to be) optimized for a better gaming experience.

Dual SIM capability

The Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 are both Dual SIM phones, offering Nokia’s Easy Swap technology. This enables users to switch between SIMs quickly without having to remove their battery or turn off their phone.

The Easy Swap technology can personalize and remember up to five different SIM cards, giving consumers full control over their costs.

Free Games:

In the coming months, the Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 will bring free 40 key EA Games, valued at EUR 75 if bought separately, including well known titles like Tetris®, Bejeweled®, Need for Speed(TM) The Run, Monopoly Here & Now, and SimCity(TM) Deluxe.

Consumers will be able to easily access the content by clicking on the Games Gift EA icon on their home screen which will take them to the Nokia Store to download the games. Once they have accessed the offering, they will have 60 days to download the games of their choice, keeping the games forever.

Memory:

There is 16 MB internal memory with support for up to 32 GB of storage with MicroSD slot.

Camera and Entertainment:

Both new phones offer a VGA camera for pictures. Consumers can tune into their favorite radio stations and share their favorite songs with friends over Bluetooth.

  • why end of 3rd Quarter?? i believe if sets have been launched in pakistan then should be instantly available in market.

    • These handsets were unveiled today, not launched. This means that Nokia announced that they will manufacture these handsets and will launch by Q3 2012.

  • Epic fail……………………..lol
    Everyone was waiting to see S40 and what actually we got? A fail feature phone in second decade of 20th century, when world has moved to quad core smart phones?
    I hate Nokia.
    I am officially announcing abandoning of my love for Nokia.

    Samsung Zindabad
    HTC Zindabad
    Iphone zindabad

  • Another and Another crap!!!!!!!!
    In my opinion:
    Put 3,000 more in your budget and get Huawei IDEOS Android 2.2 Smart Phone.

    • And then take out another 7000 from your budget when Huawei fails in a very short time, unlike Nokia which is reliable and dependable with good customer service.

      Cheap price is not always the king. You get what you pay for.

  • @dark – the phones are officially launched from Pakistan, the event took place today at a local hotel.

  • Nokia has failed to bring successful dual sim phones.. so far we have seen lot.. like 101, cd-02 and many more with infinite problems…
    this series would be another waste of amount hopefully.. i assume ppl are not dying to use internet on such deep shittt cell phone
    pathetic..

  • Nokia is still successful in making fool of the masses. Coward nokia. They too should have adapted android

    • Android is like old windows: buggy, laggy,slow and with security risks.
      Hence Nokia did not switch to Android.
      Cheap price may attract you, but performance wise, Android is not so good.

      • I think you are far away from power of android. LOL. Keep away yourself from android else it will fire you.

        • Lol at you guys…Andiord is for thoese who doesnt have acces to laptop or PC or Xbox or PS… Even Xbox 360 lauched in 2005 has 1000 times better grafix and enjoyment than crappy Andiod…

          Mobile is just for 3 Functions..
          1) Call
          2) Messages
          3) Connectivty I.e. Intenret entertainment i.e. Facebook,news, Website…

          For this if you go for andiord (~25,000) you are truly an idiot…

          (~25k as low andiord models are too sluggish to use with low battery timming)

          • WP7 (Windows phone) is great OS,
            Android is kinda sluggish,
            you have the example of Nokia Lumia 800 running WP7 on 1.4 GHZ single core that smooth, a android having dual core can’t be that smooth and effective!

            • I humbly diagree to your verdict. Probably you have used those cheap handsets that have cheaper hardware. Did you try any of the HTC Ones? or Google’s own? (Google Nexus One, Nexus S, Nexus P)???

              I am Android user since 2009 and I can say that its the best smartPhone I have used.

              And for the record, none of my phone had a processor bigger than “single core 1Ghz”

  • Nokia is also considering the lower market that is capture by China Mobiles, These set will boosts the sales to some extent. I will prefer go for Samsung by adding a little more to the money.

  • Nokia cheap handset banane mein laga hai isi waja se smartfone ki race mein ab se peeche reh gya hai,
    Sirf N9 he hai but uska OS bekar hai

  • i don’t understand what the hell nokia is doing . . the china mobiles are far better than nokia in dual sim . . and for internet the screen matters . . what will you see on 1.8 inch screen while surfing internet . . it will be a pain in . . .
    and android is becoming smooth day by day . . yes its earlier version were laggy but it depends on mobile manufacturer . . i got a low end samsung android phone . . its official os from samsung is laggy but here are customs roms developed by different people from across the world and free of cost . . so now i m using a custom rom and the phone is very smooth and do multitasking although its low and phone.
    nokia lost its market because of their shitty symbian and not going for android . .ok symbian was on top when there was no android or iphone os but now nokia should seriously think about android . .

  • I think these phones do not deserve to be mention on propaki,
    Just wasted time.
    Plz Admin mention those phones which are cheap+smart.

  • ohhh fazooooooooooooool set hai vga camera fazool itny ziada paison main just vga camera nd 2 sim wo bhi on 1 sath hon gi bhi k nai is ka rate just 3000 ya 2700 hona chaiye tha…..

    nokia working great for poor people but they actually bluffing with them….

  • Beautiful design, nice S40 upgrade to the S30 Nokia 101.

    But STUPID decision to save a few cents on the signature LED torch feature.

    Nokia needs to differentiate itself with basic human needs like Li-ion powered LED flashlight. Probably killed by the incompetent cost management. That’s probably why phone sales are being butchered by Samsung in the low end.

    People just see that it’s the same randomly thrown-together/lacking featureset like Samsung’s, except with better looks. Style over substance. Nokia losing market share because it’s killing its signature features, all the time wondering why people don’t appreciate its efforts in design.

  • Whilst I’d personally value a torch on these devices (and may well get a 112 as a standby device myself anyway) we have to remember the target demographic, what appeals to them most, and above all: cost.

    That’s why this device is stuffed full of Social Media, games and messaging goodness, etc., and dressed in funky colours.

    Whilst adding a torch might seemingly add only a few cents/pennies to the BOM, it has to be designed in (and that’d cost more than the component price I’d guess) and this in turn may compromise other features. Additional ‘small’ costs are then magnified beyond the factory gate as intermediaries add their markup and Cost is King right now.

    Far from being incompetent, it is decisions like these that actually demonstrate acute, considered specification of devices matched to the target market.

    Above all else, if we take your argument to its extreme every Nokia would be a fully-specced, top-end device as there will always be some market sector that will be demanding this or that ‘missing’ feature.

    You can’t keep ’em all happy!

  • Can you guys believe that I am still using a Nokia 6100 set and I have successfully been using it for last 6 years.
