Nokia 515 is a Series 40 powered handset made with aluminum
The handset will be released next month with stops in Russia, Germany, Switzerland and Poland. And the device will be offered in single SIM and dual SIM models with dualband HSDPA (900 / 2100) and quadband GSM / EDGE connectivity. The phone is priced at 115 EUR ($150 USD).
If you thought that Series 40 phones were dead, here is a new model that shows you that there is life in the ol' boy still. And with a 3.5G HSDPA connection, it still provides the speed that you need. The Nokia 515 is available in black and white and with the Easy Swap Dual SIM model, you can change SIM cards without turning off the phone.

So clever Nokia. They made it from aluminum to cut down the production price.

Almost looks as if Nokia is having some fun. Making a premium feature phone, with better build quality than some of the premium smartphones by the competitors. Anodized aluminum, Gorilla glass 2 and polycarbonate resin keypad. Amaziing.

Meh! I'd just put $50 dollars more and get the $199 USD google nexus 4 8gig, better deal.

You mean $100 more! The nexus 4 is amazing!

Its $50 more for the 8gb. Also it only has 900/2100 HSDPA so sorry everyone in the US.

I'd rather have this than something with android on it,. No thanks I think this phone will do just fine.

$150 for that POS? A nexus 4 cost $50 more and if your super cheap a lg optimus l9 is the same price and still 10x better.

Yeah, and the data plan to run it also cost more... Didn't you read❔... FEATURE PHONE❕

Nice..but I think that you can get lumia 520 with that price..if I'm not wrong.

True, but not everyone wants/needs a smartphone, and this is quite nice, which may be just what someone wants. This will likely be sold in places the 520 isn't in addition to their shared markets.

You can get a great Chinese android for that price...
What would you need HSDPA on S40 for? Facebook app? Browsing on this tiny screen?

You lost me at great and Chinese... Sorry I disagree.. If I can help it I'm not supporting what they design and produce made by some child in a factory.

A Huawey Y300, for example... an entry level yet complete smartphone with Jelly Bean that would blow this phone away, even if you just use the basic functions, for ease of use, camera quality and so on, and which, by the way, has a pretty decent design, besides letting you install any android app you might need, even if it's just the basic tasks like looking at google maps when you're lost or searching for that restaurant phone number.

Looks really cool, I hope it has WiFi and an outstanding battery life.

Microsoft and Nokia should just make a stripped down version of WP for Nokia's feature phones.. This would expand Windowsphone's market share exponentially, and very fast.... Developers would be interested in the amount if potential money they could make on a platform that would dwarf iOS, and possibly Android..
22. veer.d (Posts: 88; Member since: 12 Jul 2013)
no one can do this because MSFT charge a licence fee which is equivalent to cost of a feature phone
23. rodneyej1 (Posts: 3561; Member since: 06 Jul 2013)
Microsoft, and Nokia, have a thing going on if you haven't recognized yet...
25. Antonyjoseph (Posts: 215; Member since: 06 Apr 2013)
Yeah Microsoft & Nokia should develop a WP lite and price it like the Asha phones. This would increase Microsoft share of the phone market and Nokia share of the smartphone market.
