If you thought that the Nokia label was gone for good, you’d be wrong. Microsoft has just announced a new addition to their smartphone lineup in the Nokia 215, an extremely colourful entry-level smartphone that will retail, in the States at least, for the equivalent of about R360.

We’ve already mentioned just how bright these phones can be but they’re also packing a decent amount of tech for first-time smartphone users. The Nokia 215 uses a Series 30+ operating system as opposed to Windows Phone but that’s the cut-down specs talking.

The Nokia 215 has a 2.4-inch display, which is a 320 x 240 LCD screen. RAM… is just 8MB and you’ll be able to load up to 32GB of storage with a microSD card. The camera is just a 0.3MP affair and users will have a torch and MP3 playback to look forward to.

Although the specs are teeny, it boasts Facebook, Twitter, Bing and Opera Mini access, making this handset the perfect transition device from a feature phone to something a bit more smartphone-ish. It’s due to launch in Africa later this year, but we have yet to confirm whether SA is on that list. We certainly hope so, at this price.
