Nokia's 105, 106, 107 and 109 phones already make up the bulk of the company's budget lineup, and now a new member is set to join the family. The new Nokia 108 recently debuted on the company's India website, featuring the usual design and a price tag of just $29.
At its current price, nobody expects the 108 to go head-to-head with the iPhone, yet it still manages to pack some relatively decent specs. The 1.8" color display has a resolution of 128x160 pixels and runs Nokia's Series 30+ software with a standby time of up to 25 days. The 108 also comes with 4MB of RAM, up to 32GB of microSD support and a .3MP VGA camera, all while weighing just 70.2g.
Nokia plans on offering the device in a dual-sim model with the same specifications, but the pricing for that variant is so far unclear. Both devices will be available in the 4th quarter of this year and their long battery life and cheap price should be useful in the poorer areas of countries such as India and China.
