Nokia hopes to conquer the world with new $20 105 and 105 Dual-SIM

Nokia has unveiled a pair of super-cheap phones, which it hopes will bring the latest technology to more consumers around the globe.

The new Nokia 105 and Nokia 105 Dual SIM follow in the footsteps of the original Nokia 105, but with a more rounded design, improved audio quality and increased storage and battery life.

Hailed as Microsoft’s cheapest phones, the 105 and 105 Dual SIM will hit the shelves this month in “select markets” around the world, costing $20 before local taxes and subsidies.

Both phones will be available in black, cyan and white and are almost identical in terms of features, with the obvious exception of the Dual SIM edition featuring a pair of SIM card slots.

They’ll pack the same 1.4-inch, 128 x 128 display, 4MB of RAM and replaceable 800mAh battery, and come equipped with FM Radio and a torchlight.

Nokia says users will be able to store the details of up to 2,000 contacts, and that the 105 will last for 35 days in standby mode off a single charge.

They’ll also come pre-installed with Snake Xenzia and Bubble Bash 2, to keep gamers happy.
