Colored display, FM radio, Dual Sim, 32 day battery time and all for very cheap price.

Nokia may have lost its market to Android and iPhone in US or Europe but its still king of mobile phone sales in non-smartphone category and in third world countries. Nokia 101 is one such phone which is about to debut within next week, in countries like India, Pakistan and Africa etc. This phone is a successor of their previous cheap yet very successful, Nokia 3310.

To meet the demands of third world countries the 101 still carries a FM radio and torch like 3310. But gets an upgrade in its screen by boosting a 128 x 160 resolution color display.  It has a MP3 player, a standard 3.5 mm audio jack, SD card support. Dual sim slot is another one of hot features required in these countries where people carry different connections for different rates and packages. It has a long battery life of 8.5 hours talk-time and 32 days on standby.

All these features will make it an attractive phone for the third world community, when it will be sold for a low price of 130 AED / 3000 PKR. It will be available in phantom black and coral red colors.
