Whats New In Symbian : Microsoft launchs Nokia 230 on consumer markets

Microsoft launchs Nokia 230 on consumer markets – Waco Tekno Time

While no new details have been revealed about the upcoming smartphone, it’s promising to see another good-looking Nokia phone in the market.Nokia phones from the early 2000s remain in history for their simplicity and high performance for the moment.
Despite the fact that Nokia no longer develop phones

The products division of the Finnish company still exists within Microsoft and brings to the market the Lumia smartphones, but also new “feature phones” with increasingly “smart” functions. The 230 is a direct descendant of Nokia phones now more than 10 years and can become a very attractive phone backup.

Even if the last ten years we started talking more about operating systems, RAM and processors when we talk about mobiles, Nokia 230 reminds us of a easier time, the screen resolution and camera resolution were enough to choose a phone or another. Since this is a feature phone, we cannot talk about a modern operating system, the new Nokia being built around the old S40 platforms. It provides access to several popular social networking applications, as well as simple 2D games. Connected to the internet, the phone has access to Facebook, MSN Weather, Bing Search, Opera Mini browser and Twitter, possibly installing several other simple applications on demand.

The Nokia 230 is NOT a smartphone – it is a feature phone meant for emerging markets, where the Finland-based company had remained prominent even as the iPhone and Android flagship makers ruled the roost in the U.S., U.K., and other developed markets. As such, one shouldn’t expect any high-end sensor for the front camera, which Nokia is pushing as the device’s main selling point. The Nokia 230’s basic specifications include a 2.8-inch display, microSD support up to 32GB, an FM radio, and 2-megapixel cameras for the rear and the front. Pricing, as we mentioned, is extremely cheap at $55, and if you come to think about it, most feature phones at that price point merely come with VGA cameras.

Don’t underestimate Microsoft in this market either, thanks to feature phone sales the company is the third largest mobile manufacturer in the world. In terms of feature phones the Nokia 230 gets just about every single thing right and it is even a good looking old thing too. We are sure those limited by economy will love this, while we can also see mobile enthusiasts and hipsters casting covetous glances to the 230 as a second device.

The specs are largely unimportant on a handset like this, but some of the most important include the Series 30+ platform, 16MB of RAM, a 2.8-inch screen with 240 x 320 resolution, and a 2MP lens on the back and a 2MP lens on the front, both of which comes with LED flash. It also sports Bluetooth 3.0 and GSM connectivity. The handset ships with Bing Search, Opera Mini Browser, and MSN Weather all on board.

Even if the Nokia 230 is a feature phone, it does have other features, no pun intended, that make it a good bang-for-buck device. It has a touchscreen paired with physical buttons, which makes it even more interesting. And this isn’t the first Nokia-branded feature phone released by Microsoft, and not the most affordable either – the Nokia 215 was debuted and released earlier this year, after all, with a price tag of $29 and a claim that it was the company’s “cheapest Internet device” ever released.
