Nokia 215 is the Cheapest Internet-Ready Basic Phone Yet

Microsoft just officially announced a new phone but it's not a flagship device for the year or any smartphone that bears the Lumia branding, it's a technically a feature phone but at the same time is able to connect to the internet and browse the web. Microsoft unveiled the Nokia 215. I wonder why Microsoft still uses the Nokia name when they have already ditched it with last smartphone they released, the Lumia 535. 

Later this quarter Microsoft will roll out the Nokia 215 starting in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe. It will only cost $29 or about Php1,300 before tax. 

The Nokia 215 will be available in single and dual-SIM variants and just like what has been mentioned above, it is capable of connecting to the internet via Opera Mini browser and it will come pre-installed with Facebook, Messenger, Twitter and Bing Search apps right out of the box. Even though this device only sports a 1,100mAh battery juice, since it is a basic phone and has no other complex specs inside it Microsoft promises it to last up to 29 days on standby mode.
