Microsoft released the original Nokia 105 back in May 2013 and sold over 80 million units ever since. Earlier today, the Redmond giant announced a new Nokia 105, also available in a Dual SIM variant. This cheap handset targets first-time mobile phone buyers, but also those looking for a backup phone that offers long battery life and a sturdy design without breaking the bank. 

The updated Microsoft Nokia 105 has the following highlights:

  • Display: 1.45-inch LCD transmissive with 128X128 pixels
  • Connectivity: Dual-band 900/1800 MHz (both variants) and 850/1900 MHz (single SIM only), micro USB charging, 3.5 mm AV connector
  • Operating system: Nokia Series 30+
  • Battery/Autonomy: BL-5CB, 800 mAh; up to 15 hours talk time and 35 days (single SIM) or 25 days (dual SIM) standby
  • Colors: white, black, cyan
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.15 pounds; 4.27X1.79X0.56 inches

Microsoft Nokia 105 and Nokia 105 Dual SIM will go on sale later this month "in select markets" for an estimated price of just $20 USD before taxes and subsidies. Availability and pricing details should be announced locally prior to launch.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
