Microsoft ended the Nokia Asha Nokia and X, but does not intend to completely abandon the entry level phones. The Nokia 130, a very basic mobile that will remind some nostalgic memories of the brand. For the price of 19 euros, no need to look any frills, this phone “very vintage” look, hosts a keyboard and a 1.8 inch screen.
If you can forget the camera sensor, 3G or Wi-Fi, the Nokia 130 still allows you to listen to music, watch some videos and listen to the radio. This phone can rely on a dual SIM slot and can accommodate an SD card. Bluetooth is also part of the lot. Designed primarily for emerging or anyone looking for an extra phone, Nokia 130 will be available this quarter, in red, gray and black.
If Microsoft wants to focus on Windows Phone 8 and the Lumia, it does not intend to abandon the ultra entry level, as told Recode.net Jo Harlow, vice president of mobile division at Microsoft, adding one billion people still had no mobile phone. And that the market was stable, unlike that of “feature phone”, which he declined, according to Jo Harlow.
