Nokia announces the Nokia 100 and Nokia 101 Symbian S30 mobile phones
25 August 2011 by Olav Hellesø-Knutsen
The Nokia 101 dual SIM and Nokia 100 models are Nokias most affordable mobile phones ever. Both models have specifications from early 2000 with a 128 x 160 pixel display and the lack of MMS
Nokia today announced two entry-level mobile phones stripped for features. The price will reflect this and Nokia says the Nokia 100 will be available for 20 Euros and Nokia 101 for 25 Euros. We would claim that these are very affordable devices. The Nokia 100 and Nokia 101 specifications list is similar to those we saw back in 2002. The screen is a little better than those days and the battery is much better. The Nokia 100 talk time is reported as 7.2 hours and standby time is 35 days. Nokia 101 has a little less powerful battery, but the big brother of these two have a second SIM slot, memory card slot and a MP3 player instead.
You will not find any less feature rich models from Nokia in the near future. The new Nokia naming conventions are going from 100 to 900 where model 100 has the least features and the Nokia 900 is the flagship model which means the two lowest possible model number now is taken.
