Nokia today announced their fifth dual SIM device in the last three months and their most affordable to date. The new Nokia 101 and Nokia 100 cell phones enable users to connect to two different networks to receive calls and messages.
The Nokia SIM manager allows users to select which SIM card to use to make a call or send a text message helping them manage costs and maintain network coverage without needing several phones. In addition, the SIM manager allows users to store the settings of up to five SIM cards on the phone, and to personalize them by assigning names and logos for each SIM setting.
Both cell phones look the same but the Nokia 101 adds an integrated MP3 player and microSD card slot (16GB max), allowing users to carry their entire music collection with them.
The Nokia 100 is perfect for people looking for durability and simplicity as well as affordability when making calls and sending text messages. The Nokia 100 is Nokia's most affordable color display phone, and people can enjoy its new attractive grid-based menu system with fun and easy-to-read icons. Furthermore, the Nokia 100 features an FM radio, enabling users to tune into their favorite music stations, whether on-the-go or at home.
Both the Nokia 101 and Nokia 100 offer Nokia Life Tools (selected markets) and Nokia Money (in India), providing instant access to locally-relevant information on healthcare, education, agriculture and entertainment.
