Next to its competitively priced Windows and Android smartphones announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Nokia also revealed the 220, a very cheap handset advertised as "an Internet-ready mobile phone with social apps" that will soon hit the stores starting at only 29 EUR (roughly $40 USD).
The Nokia 220 has a modest 2.4-inch display with 240X320 pixels and 262k colors, a 2 MP camera in the back with video recording capabilities, microSD support for up to 32 GB of storage, FM radio, GPRS and Bluetooth. The phone also features a dust- and splash-proof keypad. According to the official product page, the 1,100 mAh battery can offer up to 29 days of stand-by, 15 hours of talk time and an impressive 51.5 hours of music playback.
In terms of software for Internet browsing, the Nokia 220 comes loaded with the Nokia Xpress browser, Facebook and Twitter, while Bing is set as its default search engine.
This handset will be available in single and dual SIM variants and bright colors - red, yellow, and blue, next to white and black. Unfortunately, it may not arrive in the United States at all, since Nokia mentioned it will be sold in Asia-Pacific, India, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
