Joining the Nokia 105 and 222 is the just announced Nokia 230. Featuring a premium aluminium construction (well, sort of), it is a feature phone with several neat tricks up its sleeves, such as up to 27 days of standby time.
Running on the Nokia Series 30+ operating system, the Nokia 230 has a modest 2.8-inch 320 x 240 QVGA display, support for a microSD card up to 32GB, a 1,200mAh battery that promises up to 23 hours of talk time or 27 days (22 days for the dual-SIM model) of standby time, an aluminium back cover, as well as 2MP rear and front-facing cameras; each has its own LED flash, which is pretty interesting.
Just because the Nokia 230 is a feature phone doesn’t mean it’s not well-connected. Turns out, the 230 can access several popular social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter. Other than that, Microsoft mentioned that there are plenty of apps and games for the Nokia 230 on the Opera Store. The 230 can also browse the web using Bing Search or the Opera Mini Browser.
The Nokia 230 retails at US$55 (about RM230) and will be available in India, Asia, as well as the Middle East next month. It remains to be seen if the new feature phone will be launched here in Malaysia at the same time.
