Microsoft’s recent announcement about layoffs and streamlining Nokia had put into question about Microsoft’s plans with Nokia and upcoming smartphones or feature phones. There was news during the same period of time that Microsoft was planning to kill all the Android devices of Nokia and halt all the Android efforts of the company.
Anyways, Microsoft has now launched a really low cost feature phone Nokia 130 which is priced at 19 Euros (approx. US $25 or Rs. 1500 in Indian currency). You might be thinking that such a low cost phone wont have many features but the device supports audio and video playback.
Not only this, the Nokia 130 is supported by Microsoft’s cloud services which means users will be able to use Microsoft services like Bing search, Outlook.com and OneDrive online storage. The phone will launch soon in many countries like China, India, Egypt, Indonesia, Kenya, Pakistan, Vietnam, Philippines and Nigeria.
