Nokia 109 unveiled

posted at 01 November, 2012

The Nokia has announced the 109, a very affordable handset which runs on Nokia’s Series 40 feature phone platform. The new device comes with the promise to bring the mobile GPRS/EDGE 2G Internet to the even most affordable phones, being, as Nokia defines it “the latest step forward in our strategy to connect the next billion and beyond to the Internet”.

The Nokia 109 is yet another piece of evidence showing that Nokia has now become a company known mostly for its affordable devices rather than for its high-end smartphones.

The device offers 2G connectivity which allows users on the 109 to use Nokia’s Xpress Browser, and will definitely last you more than a smartphone, as you should expect to charge it around twice a week (not everyday).

The Nokia 109 is essentially a basic feature phone that comes with a 1.8-inch 128 x 160-pixel display, and accepts memory cards of up to 32GB. Surprisingly enough, the phone has no camera, so it will be all about calls, Internet and music on this handset. And it appears that music can be handled pretty well with the loudspeaker that manages to deliver no less than 103 phons.

The Nokia 109 will be available in black and cyan this quarter in China, Pacific Asia and Europe. Customers can purchase the device for the affordable $42 with no contract.
