Nokia 110 and Nokia 112. Are They Low-End Smartphones?

Last month Nokia released their two handsets Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 from Pakistan for the first time. It was a global launch from Pakistan of any mobile manufacturer, and I believe Nokia broke the ice by realizing the huge potential and market of Nokia in Pakistan. Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 are the two low-end dual SIM phones but with quite a lot of features .

These two low-price handsets have some amazing features. The main focus of Nokia with these handsets where to provide Internet enabled mobile devices in everyone’s reach. Price of Nokia 110 is €35 and the price of Nokia 110 is €38. The launch was amazing and very entertaining.

Nokia claims that these handsets are equipped with the fastest browser to give best Internet experience to the users. One of the key features is that the handsets consume very low data connectivity (GPRS Usage) because of the well encrypted browser available in Nokia 110 and Nokia 112. The Facebook and Twitter apps are also available preloaded into the mobile phone and are easily accessible from the home screen.

After looking at these both handsets the first thought that comes to my mind is that Nokia is going to get into competition with the Chinese mobile phones which are getting popular. Most of these Chinese mobile phones have dual SIM connectivity and provide little features for Internet access (GPRS). By releasing these type of low-end mobile phones Nokia is going to get back it’s lost market and in return those low-end users who only used to make calls and SMS from their mobile phones will start using Internet. I would really consider these type of Nokia basic phones as low-end smartphones which enable the users to have most of the daily usage features. Like all the other companies, Nokia is also making tightly integrated mobile phones for Facebook and Twitter. Without any doubt, Nokia 110 and Nokia 113 are the best Nokia dual SIM mobile phones.
