Ever since Microsoft acquired Nokia, people started speculating that Nokia would stop creating feature phones and concentrate on its smartphone line up but Nokia has since then put an end to those rumours but churning out new handsets every other month. Today, Nokia brought out two new ones, the Nokia 225 and Nokia 225 Dual SIM. Both of these feature phones are loaded with distinct Nokia characteristics. Both have a mono-block form factor and the keypad is protected by a dust and splash proof keymat. The display is tad bigger at 2.8” inches which would suffice for the occasional video viewing. The LCD transmissive display has a QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) resolution and a pixel density figure of 142 ppi.

Since the Nokia 225 is most likely to be bought as a secondary phone in developed markets, it features a mini-SIM slot which would help users to pop in the same SIM as they use in their smartphones and continue their conversation when their primary phone runs out of juice. These phones come with connectivity options like micro-USB and Bluetooth 3.0 with SLAM. The 2MP rear sensor is able to shoot decent photos for your social networks but don’t think uploading videos shot by the Nokia 225 as they are AVI M-JPEG ones shot in QVGA resolution at 15fps. While Nokia fails to mention the amount of internal memory on the Nokia 225 it does however highlight the microSD slot that is capable of handling cards of up to 32GB which should be enough for your on-the-go music collection. Since the phone is 2G internet enabled device Nokia has preloaded apps such as Nokia Xpress Browser, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo! Messenger and Bing Search. S30 Gaming titles such as Block Breaker 3, Asphalt 6, Assassins Creed 3, The Avengers and Real Football 2012 have been thrown in for free. Both the Nokia 225 and its dual-SIM counterpart are powered by a 1200mAh battery and while the single SIM version lasts for 36 days on a single charge its sibling manages to stay awake for 27 days.

Prices of these phones start at EUR 39 (3240 INR) and they shall be available in red, yellow, green, black and white colour variants in the second quarter of 2014 across select markets. You can know more about these feature phones by visiting their product pages and skimming through their launch announcement on the Nokia Conversations blog.

@Dhananjay Harkare • 10 Apr, 2014 With iBall, Lava etc customers can get Android phones at somewhat Rs.3300. It's interesting to see that Nokia is still not done with feature phones.
@Netradeep Dhonde • 11 Apr, 2014 There are still many Nokia fans out there who like it the old way.
