Nokia 101

 Nokia 101 Available now
25th August 2011

A slightly more expensive and much more capable version of the Nokia 100, the Nokia 101 should cost just €25 before tax and subsidy. You wouldn't expect a lot for that sort of money, but the Nokia 101 packs a surprising amount in.

Although it looks almost identical to the 100 with a basic 1.8" 128 x 160 pixel TFT colour display on the front and no camera on the back, the 101 is actually a dual-SIM phone with an MP3 player, FM radio and a microSD slot. A stereo wired headset in included in the box, although you will need to supply your own microSD card.

The Nokia 101 has an integrated flashlight, it can store up to 500 phonebook entries in 5 SIM card profiles, it comes with a time and pre-paid tracker. There are some preloaded games, and the 101's simple Series 30 interface has been given a makeover to match Nokia's more expensive phones.

There's no data connectivity, camera or Bluetooth, but then you weren't really expecting that for this money, were you? What you get is dual-band 900 / 1800 GSM with both SIM cards active at once.

In India, China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal the Nokia 101 will ship with a large 1020 mAh battery which gives up to 32 days standby time, 8.5 hours talktime and 33 hours of music playback. For some reason the rest of the world gets a smaller 850 mAh battery which still provides a very respectable 25 days standby, 6.7 hours talktime and 26 hours music playback. The Nokia 101 weighs a shade under 70 grams and measures 110 x 46 x 15mm.

There are only two colours available, Coral Red and Phantom Black. Nokia say that the 101 should start shipping during Q3 2011.
