Budget $29 Nokia 108 unveiled with VGA camera, 31-hour standby
Nokia has launched another low-cost featurephone destined for emerging markets. Following the lead from its <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293970==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/02/25/phone.for.emerging.markets.to.cost.15.euros.at.lau nch/" rel='nofollow'>low-budget Nokia 105</a>, the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293971==http://www.nokia.com/global/products/phone/108" rel='nofollow'>Nokia 108</a> and the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/293972==http://www.nokia.com/global/products/phone/108-dual-sim" rel='nofollow'>Nokia 108 Dual SIM</a> offer the typical basic phone features in a cheap case, except this time it includes a camera sensor and support for connecting with other devices over Bluetooth 3.0. <br />
<br />
Running on just 4MB of RAM and requiring a microSD card for storage, the Nokia 108 has a rear-mounted 0.3-megapixel camera with 2x digital zoom that can record 320x240 video at 15fps. While it also boasts an MP3 player and a larger 1.8-inch 160x128-resolution display compared to the Nokia 105, it still retains much of what its $20 stablemate offers, such as a simplistic and tough build, an FM radio, a 31-day standby on battery that allows for 13.8 hours of talk time and 40.8 hours of music playback, and dual-band GSM connectivity. <br />
<br />
Both the single and dual-SIM versions of the Nokia 108 will be shipping in the fourth quarter of this year, priced at $29, in a range of five colors.
