Behold the new Nokia 3310: Nokia 105

If asked what I think of the Nokia 105, a cheap feature phone announced at MWC 2013, I would simply describe it as the new Nokia 3310. Here is a basic mobile with a nice durable build, colour display, a user interface that resembles what we saw on the Nokia N9, and a battery that lasts and lasts. Nokia claims that it gives you up to 12.5 hours of talk time and a standby of up to 35 days.

The 105 has no internet connectivity, but includes 8MB space, a Digital clock, Calculator, Flashlight, Clock, Calendar, Phonebook, Converter, Speaking clock, Expense manager, Alarm clock, and FM Radio. It also includes Nokia Life, an SMS-based service that gives you access to information, e.g. healthcare and education, without the need of an internet connection.

Nokia 105 costs only $20. That is about N3,200 here in Nigeria.

In a world where its easy to ignore anything that isn’t a smartphone, it might sound cool to scoff at the Nokia 105. But I am convinced that this baby will sell like hotcakes. As a matter of fact, I shall be getting one. The house phone has needed a replacement for a while. Think of a cheap phone that can handle the abuse of two pre-teen kids when dad and mom are away from home, and you can only agree with me that this is its replacement.
