The Nokia 301 will also come with a few new (for its class) camera features including panaroma mode. It will be available in Q2 this year for just about $85 or around Rs.11,000.
The Nokia 105 is one of the cheapest phones by Nokia ever. Costing just about $20 or around Rs. 2,000-2,300, it is dust and splash resistant and has a flashlight. A Radio, colour display, alarm and several nifty features can also be found in the Nokia 105. It comes in cyan and black versions and will be available in Q1 this year.
