Very impressive for Nokia. They realize that not all people can afford color-display smartphones. It can be seen Nokia has a wide perspective, since it is not always about high technology. Feeling nostalgic about the old times...

And not everyone in the world wants, needs, deserves, or all of the above, a smartphone. This is a really good cheap phone. If you wanna blow your money else where go ahead. But some companies cover a spectrum, not your wants and needs only. Get a life

if they cant buy fod, i highly doubt they can afford power bills either, so how is a mobile phone going to be beneficial for them?

Oh wait, it sais it has 27days battery life on standby mode, well that gives them a month of looking at the phone atleast..

for $32 euros you can buy this..

AND it comes with a TV built in! i'd love to see how much Nokia or Samsung or Apple would charge for a device you can watch TV on... and don't forget $32 is what we the westerners get charged in reality, that price is a lot lower....

are they not a better option, pay a little extra and get something 10x more powerful and more fun to play with?.... i'm sure an extra 10 euros will get you a lot more for your buck...

with all these high-end superphones in my pockets (galaxy note and iphone 4s), after iv seen this nokia 103, it kept me thinking on going back to older times like 10 yrs ago while i was using a nokia 6210, i might just take with me a nokia 103 instead of an iphone 4s or a galaxy note... just a thought

I don't really know who Nokia's target market is with this phone, 'cause everyother person in Nigeria is either with a BB or a 'droid. Maybe the really, really, awesomely ancient grannies. #JustSaying.

well i think this is good phone. a budget handset just what the people need. great price. and good quality from as standard. it will have good battery as always.

like to see a budget windows phone. say £100 mark. would be nice.
