Nokia 100, 101 unveiled: Espoo continues its foray in the ultra low end
The Nokia 100/101 don’t aim for the sky when it comes to their specs, but pricewise they do - the basic Symbian 30 devices push the boundary of the ultra low-end as probably the most affordable color screen phones while delivering outstanding battery life.

The two handsets are nearly identical except for two things: the Nokia 101 is a dual-SIM device with an MP3 player, features not present on the Nokia 100. Both of them, though, come with an FM radio and battery that can serve you up to 25 days in standby mode, with a talk time of 6.7 hours.

The more advanced Nokia 101 supports microSD cards with capacity reaching 16GB, a perfect tool for storing your music for once. The 101 comes with a standard 3.5mm jack for your headphones. It also remembers the settings of up to five SIM cards, but two can work at the same time.

The Nokia 101 will be the first to hit the market this quarter carrying a price tag of $36 (25 euro), while the Nokia 100 will only arrive next trimester for $29 (20 euro). Both devices are aimed at the African and Asian markets, but at such a price they really seem like a steal for anyone who wants an affordable music player/phone, aren’t they?
