Nokia 301: The 65 euro mobile phone with the "smart'' camera (hands-on video @MWC 2013)

Nokia presented another low price device during the MWC 2013. Although it may not cost 15 euros-like Nokia 105- but 65 euros, which is the suggested price by Nokia, it can be however a wise choice for many users. It features the classic candy bar design, a 2.4 inch screen, a "smart'' camera and 3.5G.


The smart camera offers many options for capturing, editing and sharing photos, like Panorama for wide-angle captures, group photos and landscapes, sequential photo capturing, self portrait for great centered photos even without a front camera etc. It also provides voice directions to users, guiding them to take the best possible 5 photos from which the users can chose the one they like the most.


Photos sharing is easy and fun and can be achieved directly from the phone's gallery to the social networks. Users can also share their photos and other files by using Slam, which is pre - installed. Slam can transfer photos contacts etc. through Bluetooth without having to pair the phones.



The Nokia 301 supports 3.5G internet and has a long life battery, features that makes it suitable for business use but also personal use. Thanks to Nokia Xpress Internet, surfing the internet becomes 90% more efficient. Users can also stream directly from Youtube and install popular apps like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and eBuddy while there's also a lite version of Mail for Exchange offering easy e-mail checking and calendar synchronization while on move. HD voice technology provides crystal clear calls even if you are in noisy environments.


The Nokia 301 comes with one or two SIM slots. EasySwap Dual SIM function allows SIM changing without having to turn off the device.


The stand by time with one SIM is calculated to 39 days and with two SIMs 34 days, with 20 hours calling time.


The device is available in many colors for all tastes (cyan, yellow, black and white) while it will be available for sale in the second quarter of 2013 to more than 120 countries. Its suggested price is 65 euros (no taxes conluded).
