Nokia Announces the Ultra-Cheap 106 and 107 with Month Long Battery Time


Making a cheap phone has never been a problem for Nokia. Continuing their tradition, they’ve announced a new duo of cheap feature-phones running on Symbian S30, the 106 and 107 Dual SIM phone.

The phones have a 1.8 inch TFT display with 65,000 colors and dimensions of 112.9 x 47.5 x 14.9 mm. Flashlight, FM Radio and splash-proof keyboard are in the mix too. The 107, which is a dual SIM variant, however, also throws in a microSD card slot and 1020 mAh battery into the package with 36 days of standby time and 34.8 hrs worth music playback.

The phones share a few design cues with the higher-end Lumia phones. The block-like design makes them easier to hold and slip in a pocket.

Nokia 106 offers standby time of up to 35 days, the Nokia 107 up to 24 days.

The phones are priced competitively as well. The 106 and 107 cost $23 and $25 respectively. Those figures aren’t inclusive of taxes though. Oh, and there’s Snake game on these phones too.
