The Nokia 215, introduced by Microsoft at CES 2015, is a low-end phone that allows cellphone users to access basic cellphone functionality in addition to a simple, low-cost way of accessing the Internet.
This handset costs just $29 + tax, which makes it perfect for people who want an Internet-connected phone without having to shell out hundreds of dollars, or first-time cellphone owners. Unsurprisingly for a phone this inexpensive, the features are fairly basic.
However the phone is built to be rugged and long-lasting; it offers 20 hours of talk time and nearly a month on standby.
The Nokia 2015 is set to be introduced in select markets in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa in early 2015.
