Nokia unveils 108: An Ultra-Cheap Camera Phone

The whole world is going smart with the help of smartphones. But what we are forgetting is that very tiny population and that too living in developed countries are buying smartphones as they can easily afford them. But, there exists a large part of population in the world which doesn’t own even a mobile phone. For them, Nokia seems to have a solution. Earlier this year at MWC (Mobile World Congress), it launched 105 which is one of the cheapest mobile phones available. Today it has announced another addition to this family with 108. With this phone, company is aiming to give the user’s ability to capture their special moments.

The device has a candy bar shape available in red, white, black initially and yellow, cyan colors coming subsequently. Another interesting fact about the mobile is that the company has provided features which are available in its upper range such as Bluetooth Slam. This feature allows one click sharing of images and songs between two devices via Bluetooth. It also has music player and FM radio capability.
