It appears that old-school phones are getting the spotlight lately, maybe people are getting tired of those touch screens or simply manufacturers are thinking more about the elderly who have a hard time adapting with the new technology.
After Samsung’s leaked photos of the flip phone, Microsoft has already introduced today the new Nokia 230, the successor of last year’s Nokia 130, which looks like the phones from our childhoods and which will cost around $55, an affordable and reasonable price. The new Nokia 230 will have an aluminum covered back that makes it look a lot more like the latest phones or simply gives it some kind of an appealing design.
When it comes to specifications the Nokia 230 has a 2.8″ QVGA display, a selfie front-camera with 2MB pixel combined with the possibility of adding 32GB external storage support. What stands out most in this classic looking phone is the fact that it is manufactured in two models from which one is a dual-SIM model. Of course these are not high-end specifications, but it will surely do the job for browsing, checking the News Feed on Facebook, writing that important inspirational tweet on Twitter, checking the Weather, browsing on MSN or anything you normally do daily on the Internet.
This product will be available for Asia, India and Middle East by December, but further locations will put the new device on the market only next year. Whether you got bored of this explosion of technology and want to downgrade a little to what was the best tech during your childhood or want to give the perfect gift to your grandparents so you can talk more, Nokia 230 is a decent and affordable choice.
