Not every new device rolled out from the Nokia shores is a Windows Phone. Nokia announced the launch of two new mobile devices today, the Nokia 110 and the Nokia 112. Though they do not fit into the ‘smartphone’ category but they are capable enough to think smartly, as Nokia states. These small mid-range devices are targeted for the urban audience and help tapping the immense potential as users interact over the web through social networks, games and more. Both the devices run on the Nokia OS (S40).
Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 Initial Impressions
Both, the Nokia 110 and Nokia 112 come with the Nokia Browser, which reduces data consumption up to 90%, saving time and data costs. Not to forget the free bundle of 40 games from EA which need to be downloaded from the Nokia Store (games like Tetris, Bejeweled, Need for Speed The Run, Monopoly Here & Now, and SimCity Deluxe). But that’s not all. Both the devices support a VGA camera (0.3 MP), a dual-SIM slot, FM Radio and a Micro-SD slot which supports up to 32GB of data. Nokia’s Easy Swap Technology allows for a fast switch of the dual SIM cards without the need to open the phone.
There is not much difference between the Nokia 112 and Nokia 110, except the design/structure and a few specifications. The Nokia 112 weighs at 86grams while the Nokia 110 weighs around 80grams. The former offers 14 hours of talktime and 35 days of standby time while the latter offers 10.5 hours of talktime and 26.5 days as standby time.
Available in Black, Magneta, Lime Green and Cyan colors, the Nokia 110 costs around €35 ($45) while the Nokia 112 will cost about €38 ($49) and will be available in Dark Grey, White, Red and Cyan avatars. The Nokia 110 is expected to ship in Q2 2012 while the Nokia 112 will be available from the third quarter.
