Nokia 220

Alongside the Nokia Asha 230 and the all new X Family, Nokia also introduced its budget friendly Nokia 220. This feature phone is the successor to the Nokia 110 and will only cost $39 (before tax and subsidies). With the continuous growth of smartphones, Nokia is one of the only companies keeping the feature phones alive.

The Nokia 220 has a 2.4-inch color screen, a 2-megapixel camera, and up to 32GB microSD card support. Connectivity wise, the Nokia 220 has a micro USB port for data transfer and charging, and Bluetooth 2.1 with Nokia SLAM - a feature that allows you to share multimedia content with nearby phones.

The Nokia 220 supports GSM 900/1800 bandwidths and lasts up to 13-hours of talk time, and a whopping 51 hours of media playback. Obviously, websites and multimedia aren't fit for such a small display, but the battery efficiency probably makes the 220 a great music player. Standby times reach 24 days for the Dual-SIM model and 29 days for the Single-SIM.

The Nokia 220 comes in a Lumia inspired colors – red, black, white, yellow, and cyan. Most importantly, the Nokia 220 has an integrated flashlight! These will always be cool, no matter what year is it.

Although MediaTek and Mozilla's low-cost initiatives will eventually see the end of phones like the Nokia 220, the Finns are happy to keep them coming until then. According to the Nokia, the 220 will be shipping to "select markets" will start "pretty much immediately".
