Microsoft announced that it would be stopping production of some of the devices that Nokia had previously offered to the low-end of the market. Some of those discontinued devices include the Nokia X, Asha, and S60. After announcing that it was ending production of those devices, it is a bit surprising to hear that Microsoft is rolling out a new Nokia feature phone.

The feature phone is called the Nokia 130 and it will sell for the equivalent of $25 in Europe. The device is aimed at first time buyers around the world and runs the Nokia Series 30 software. Microsoft notes that this is the most affordable phone with a video and music player out there.

 

 

The device has a FM tuner, MP3 player, and can play movies from a video card. It lacks any support for internet access. Battery life is 46 hours for audio and 16 hours for movies. It has a 1.8-inch screen and is good for 13 hours of talk. The feature phone can be purchased in dual or single SIM versions.
