New Nokia 108, Low-Cost Camera Phone

Nokia has unveiled two new low-cost camera phones: the Nokia 108 and the Nokia 108 Dual SIM.

In addition to a built-in VGA camera, the Nokia 108 also features an integrated MP3 player, FM radio, Snake the game, multiple alarms and flashlight. The battery can support up to a month on standby.

The two phones have a recommended retail price of US$29, excluding taxes and subsidies and are expected to start shipping in Q4 this year.

“We continue to connect millions of people, including those for whom mobile phone ownership was previously out of reach,” said Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia. “There remains a huge segment of the global population that has yet to own a camera phone. For the next billion people and beyond, we aim to bring new mobile experiences to ever-lower price points, and the Nokia 108 and Nokia 108 Dual SIM are great examples of this commitment.”
