Nokia has just launched a new low-end handset in India, the dual-SIM 114. Aimed at emerging markets, the feature-phone might be released in other countries as well.Indian customers will soon be able to purchase the Nokia 114 for only Rs 2,549 outright, which is about $45 or €35.
According to the Finnish company, the handset will be available at Nokia Store locations and major retailers across the country.
As we mentioned earlier, aside from the very low price, Nokia 114’s main selling point is the Easy Swap technology that allows users to switch SIM cards without turning off the phone.
The rest of the phone’s specs are far from being impressive, but the low price makes up for it. The handset sports a small 1.8-inch display that supports 128 x 160 pixels resolution and weighs only 80g (battery included).
Nokia 114 offers only 16MB of internal memory, but users will be able to further expand storage up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
On the back, the feature-phone packs a sub-par VGA camera with video recording. Other highlights of the phone include: Bluetooth, GPRS and EDGE support, Stereo FM radio with RDS, microUSB and FM recording.
The 114 is powered by a 1020 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 635 hours of standby time or up to 11 hours of talk time.
Last but not least, Nokia 114 comes pre-loaded with PIM (personal information management) features, including dictionary, digital clock, audio recorder and calculator.
“The new Nokia 114 offers a great, affordable browsing experience for hyper-social consumers who want instant Facebook and Twitter access, as well as to stay connected on-the-go. This unique device supports 24/7 connectivity through faster Internet access with the Nokia Xpress Browser, resulting in a superior Internet experience for these price points,” said V. Ramnath, Director of Sales, Nokia India.
