Probably the writer means dumb as to make simpler and less intellectually challenging. But he or she would have chosen a better word though.

They actually are dumb phones, since Nokia doesn't call them smartphones :D (pun intended)
Feature phones are getting smarter every year, so "dumb phone" is not an accurate term to use and form comments in this thread it offend many people - not me :-) - so maybe it's time to look for another name for these phones, S40 seris phone from Nokia are smart enough now, maybe (low end smart phone)? or semi-smartphone? i don't know, what i am sure it's not dumb anymore.
looks like nokia is recycling their phone like c5 > c5 5mp and c3-01 > c3-01 1ghz now c3 > nokia 200 but they've changed the keypad
I think phone companies should go back to year 2006-2008 phones like k810, k850, n73, n82 and n95 has the best camera and good specs while the se walkman series has the best sound quality were manufactured. now they are just producing crappy touch/qwerty phones with a yellowish dual led flash. If they remake those phone with a cheaper price and updated specs people will surely buy it.
GSMArena call it a 'dumb phone' not because it's dumb, but because it's not a smartphone, it's an entry level phone, thus it called as 'dumb phone'
