Nokia unveils newest additions to affordable handset range

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nokia has announced their newest additions to their affordable handset range—the 225 and 225 Dual SIM. It’s a new line up which brings to light Nokia’s attempt to bring the internet to the masses, TechTree reports.

Both the 225 and 225 Dual SIM have identical hardware specifications, with the only difference being the Dual SIM and dual standby feature. They feature sharp 2.8 inch QVGA display which has been set into the mono block form factor of the device. Another detail to note here is the keypad which is water and dust proof delivering a certain level of sturdiness that we have come to expect from Nokia devices. What is also impressive is the battery life, which has a standby time of about 36 days for the single SIM and 27 days for the dual SIM version, TechTree says.

The devices run the Series 30+ OS and can run java apps that are available in the plentiful via Nokia’s app store or on the World Wide Web. Talking about the internet, both phones come preloaded with Nokia’s Xpress Browser which helps reduce internet browsing costs. Other apps that come preloaded into the device are Facebook, Twitter and thanks to Microsoft, Bing Search as well. Also included are five exciting games; Block Breaker 3, Asphalt 6, Assassins Creed 3, The Avengers and Real Football 2012 to help users pass time. The FM radio and built-in music player should keep users entertained; especially when they have micro SD card support of up to 32GB available.

There is also a tiny 2MP camera which in this range of handsets means a lot and should be sufficient for sharing images over social networks.

Both the phones come in red, yellow, green, black and white; and will cost approximately Rs 3220 before taxes when launched in Q2 of 2014.

They will reportedly go on sale at an estimated price of €40.
