Nokia 301 announced: good camera on a feature phone
The Nokia 301 was just unveiled at MWC and it is an exciting budget phone - one of very few that actually feature a relatively good, ‘smart’ camera and 3.5G HSPA connectivity.

The Nokia 301 is based on the Nokia Series 40 platform and features a 2.4-inch display with a traditional alphanumeric keypad.

The Nokia 301 features a 3.2-megapixel camera allowing for a ton of editing and sharing options, including panorama for wide-angle and group shots. It also has a five-image burst shot mode, and voice-guided self-portrait mode.

Good news is you can stream YouTube videos on the Nokia 301 and apps like Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp are also on board.

The Nokia 301 will be priced at around $85 (€65), and will arrive in both single and dual-SIM models. Battery life is great on the single-SIM one with talk time of “up to” 20 hours.

Of course, it will be colorful - arriving in cyan, yellow, magenta, black and white. The 301 will land in Q2 2013 with initial availability in over 120 countries in Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Middle East and Latin America.

My wife would love this. She just wants a basic phone and a tablet but it's hard to find a good looking tough basic phone these days. This will be perfect.

Funny, yes I was feeling the same, it has a Sony Ericsson look and feel to me too though I couldn't pin-point which handset.

Just got a Nokia 206 as daily driver, and here this comes :(
but Nokia takes helluva time to release their mobiles, 206 was announced like 6 months back but was release last month, So, I might get one of these when they do get release. does look like K610, but looks promising :)

Hope this and its cheaper brethren make it to the US, if only for the prepaid market. Would be nice to walk into a store again, snag a cheap Nokia off the prepaid shelf, and walk out with a decent new handset for less than $50 or $100, if only as a backup.
