Earlier today, Nokia announced the launch of a new, very budget friendly camera phone that comes equipped with everything you need for talking, texting, and taking photos. The new Nokia 108 comes equipped with a small LCD, a number pad, and a VGA camera for just $29.




Taking cues from its Lumia line of smartphones, Nokia has given the 108 colorful cases to match your personal style. Additional features include an FM radio, MP3 player, microSD slot for storing up to 32GB of music or photos, and a built in LED flashlight. And for those who are feeling nostalgic, the old school Snake game we all grew up loving is present as well.


A dual SIM and single SIM version of the 108 is expected to ship during the fourth quarter of this year and will be initially available in black, red, and white, with cyan and yellow following shortly thereafter. No information was released on which carriers might feature the phone in their lineups, but we can expect at least a few of them to offer the phone as a free option to those who do not want an expensive smartphone.
