With all major companies in competition for the most cutting-edge technological devices, users are taken aback but Nokia 230 gets you back to basics.
It is widely known that with the arrival of the smartphone era, Nokia was not able to keep up with this technology as well as its competitors, although it was a leader on the market of traditional mobile phones. The old Nokia phones were very much appreciated for their durability and easy-to-use software. Even now, some of the older population and the ones who are not fans of the smartphone and its touch screen, believe old Nokia phones are still more reliable.
What Nokia 230 looks like
Microsoft is taking advantage of this and brings to the market two new cellphones that are meant for people who can’t or won’t keep up with the latest technology as well as for users from developing countries. These phones are the Nokia 230 and the Nokia 230 Dual SIM and they are somewhere in between the traditional Nokia and the new smartphone.
The phone has a 2.8 QVGA screen with a screen resolution of 240 x 320 pixels. It has a polycarbonate frame and a sand-blasted aluminum cover on the back. It weighs 91.8 grams and it is 10.9 mm thick. The colors it’s available in are silver and dark silver.
Let’s see some features
Microsoft chose to emphasize on the ‘selfie’ feature of the phone. It is equipped with two cameras, one in front and another one at the back. Each one of them has 2 MP and both of them have LED flash which you can easily use as a flashlight. There is also a camera key that allows to easily take selfies. Moreover, you can immediately share them with friends on Facebook or Twitter.
Speaking about social media sites, the Nokia 230 gives you access to the Internet and makes it very easy for you to browse or play games. For browsing, the phone has the Opera Mini browser, Bing Search as well as MSN weather to keep you updated on forecasts. Other features include FM radio, video and MP3 player.
The Nokia 230 runs the Nokia Series 30 OS. Although the device doesn’t have internal storage besides its 16 MB of RAM, it does have a microSD slot which can support up to 32 GB. It has a battery of 1200 mAh which should give you up to 23 hours of talk time and not more than 27 days of standby. However, don’t forget that browsing the Internet will also cost you some battery time.
People in India, Asia and the Middle East will be able to buy the phone starting December at a price of $55. The rest of the world will have to wait a bit longer until 2016.
