Said to be the Finland-based manufacturer’s ‘most affordable mobile phone for first time buyers,’ the Nokia 103 is aimed towards catering to basic everyday needs. The device is scheduled to be available in stores sometime during the Q2 of 2012.
Dressed in a new design, the mobile phone is coated with a durable anti-scratch cover for preventing scrapes and damages of sorts from occurring. There are a number of features that accompany the device. They include a built-in flashlight and MP3 as well as 32 pre-loaded polyphonic ringtones. The handset even pays attention to entertainment needs. By connecting a compatible headset to the 3.5mm AV jack, users will be able to tune into their favorite radio frequencies through the stereo FM player. Nokia has thrown in a few pre-loaded games too.
Featuring the Series 30 UI, the phone supports GSM 900 and 1800 network bands. In terms of dimensions, it measures 107.2mm x 45.1mm x 15.3mm and weighs around 76.57 grams. To power up this handset, the company has equipped it with a 2mm AC connector. Users can also be constantly updated with their meetings and schedules through the calendar and speaking clock application. On the internal storage, a maximum of 250 SMS messages can be saved, while the dust-proof key mat provides a convenient method of inserting text. Where battery life in concerned, it’s expected to have a maximum talktime of up to 11 hours and around 27 days of standby.
As we’ve already mentioned, the Nokia 103 release date is expected to fall sometime during the Q2 of 2012. Price details for the handset are currently not disclosed by the company.
