Feature phones are getting smarter and smarter with every fresh release.
Take the youthful Nokia 110, for instance. This very affordable candybar phone comes not just with Dual SIM Dual Standby capability but also with social networking apps made specifically for it and even mobile games that used to be found only in full-blown smartphones. Believe it.
Social media is the hottest trend these days and I think it's great that even the most affordable phones - or at least those from Nokia - can now run applications allowing users to stay connected with their online contacts anywhere they go.
Nokia 110 has its own Facebook for Nokia app that you can use to browse status updates and to post your own! With fast mobile network connection, you can even upload photos taken using the VGA camera!
The phone doesn't support Wi-Fi but you can always subscribe to affordable prepaid mobile data promos like PowerSurf from Globe and Always On from Smart to update Facebook, browse the net using the fast Nokia Browser 2.0, and to post tweets on Twitter.
Unlike Dual SIM phones by other brands, Nokia 110 comes with Nokia's patented Easy Swap port, which lets users change or remove the second SIM without turning off the phone or removing the back cover!
And like what I mentioned earlier, the handset ships with pre-installed games pack from EA, which include some of its biggest hits like Need for Speed, and Bejeweled!
Other key features include FM Radio, MP3 Player, microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB, and 1020 mAh Li-ion battery that delivers up to 10 hours of talk time and a month of standby.
Nokia 110 is now available in the Philippines via all authorized Nokia retailers across the archipelago. The official suggested retail price of the handset is only Php 2,190 and it comes in four vibrant colors, namely, Cyan, Black, Lime Green, and Magenta.
