Nokia phones live on: Microsoft intros a new Nokia 105
Remember the Nokia 105 from early 2013? The ultra-cheap, ultra-basic phone is being refreshed by Microsoft, which today announced a new version of it.

The new handset is also called Nokia 105, and doesn't differ too much from the model that's now over 2 years old. It has a Series 30+ UI, and sports a 1.45-inch color display with 128 x 128 pixels. The phone comes with enhanced call clarity and "audio that’s 20% louder", while offering an extended phonebook capacity of up to 2000 contacts. There's also a torchlight, a microUSB charging connector, and an 800 mAh removable battery that can provide a talk-time of up to 15 hours, or a stand-by time of up to 35 days. Moreover, the 105 comes with two pre-installed games: Snake Xenzia and Bubble Bash 2.

Obviously, the Nokia 105 is aimed at first time phone users, or at customers who need a durable, "reliable back-up phone for travel and fun." The Nokia 105 will be available around the world starting this month, in black, white, and cyan. It has a single SIM, and a dual SIM variant, both of which will be sold for around $20 before taxes and subsidies. So, any buyers around here?
