Available in a single and dual-SIM variants, the Nokia 206 costs just above $60 off contract. The device comes with the classic keypad of the past, and it sports a 2.4-inch QVGA display and expandable memory via microSD cards. There is also a 1.3-megapixel camera on the back, and 2G connectivity.
As a bonus to that, you get 40 free games from EA, plus the new SLAM Bluetooth file-sharing technology.
Battery life is outstanding at 47 days on standby for the single-SIM version, and down to 28 days on the dual SIM model.
The Nokia 206 release date is set for Q4 2012 and it will first arrive in developing markets like India, Nigeria and Indonesia.

really this phone is a great phone because it will last for over 10 years with out problems like slowing down and lag and screen breaking etc. also its so classic and nice looking for a budget phone. nokia has a great reputation in cheaper phones so i think this is a great product

Great phone i should say..Lumia inspired Asha phone...this should be nice to carry around. But i guess the camera could've been a bit better...atleast a 3.2 megapixel taking note that 6300 had 2 megapixel.

but the interface irks me. it tries too hard to be a smartphone it's often complicated and unintuitive. I like the software of Samsung feature phones better.

i think nokia should've just start ground level of their os back... just an opinion because os in this phone for me is very nice. when they develop this os throughly, they could create a better environment between their smartphone and their classic phone just like apple..
