MICROSOFT WAS RUMOURED to be abandoning both its feature phones and Nokia X Android smartphones last month, but instead, it’s announced one of its cheapest feature phone which costs €19.

The Nokia 130 bills itself as a portable video and music player and is very much a device that keeps things simple and to the point.

The feature phone doesn’t have a data connection, meaning it can’t connect to any online services, but it comes equipped with an FM radio, video player and MP3 player and comes in a Dual SIM version – designed to hold your original SIM card and another one used for travelling.

According to Microsoft, the phone has a standby time of 36 days and 26 days for single and dual SIM card versions respectively, and claims 13 hours of talk time for both versions.

The phone is very much geared towards developing markets, looking at places like Africa, and the Middle East, and those buying phones for the first time. Although if you wanted to get one for over here, it’s not like you will be breaking the bank.
