But that doe... morethat's right, that's the issue about FoxConn, just because they are not allowed to do smartphones, they stuck their noses on these very low-end feature phones, which is literally confusing a lot of clowns hating Nokia without enough nfo on what is happening with HMD and FoxConn

Yes this is a Foxcon Nokia. And yes they are only allowed to make feature phones. But that doesn't excuse the fact that you can make a pretty damn good touch screen feature phone these day. Let's hope Hmd get it right first time.
Anonymous, 14 Dec 2016They are not allowed to use 3G too? Face it, "Nokia" is a joke. It was a joke when it really ... morewell, they are not a joke as you do, you have 2 Nokias that are working with the free-world right now if you understood what I said, the phone is lacking a lot of features so why bother put a 3G capability on it? psh typical warrior

FoxConn Nokia are in-charge of these types of phones so it means it will be MADE IN CHANA, not smartphones, it is not HMD or Nokia-Finland's problem if their partner on the other end is not producing better feature phones
This phone is the first small piece of a puzzle that Hmd/Nokia will continue to create for the next 10 years.Nokia 150 is part of something new!
Nokia 130 costs 23$(1.8''screen-no camera)
and Nokia 105(1.4''screen-no camera)costs 21$.
Both have smaller screen size than Nokia 150 which is preferable because with 26$ you have 2.4''screen and camera...So the price is reasonable.
To be honest i think that the best offer came from Nokia/Microsoft and i mean the Nokia 216.
With 216 you can download games.Morever it has 2 cameras.It costs 39$.
Nokia is the king of feature phones and variety is a very good thing.
There were only slight changes with Microsoft/Nokia between all feature phones...
We are curious to see the strategy of Hmd/Nokia.Are there gonna be any surprices?
Will we see a cheap qwerty feature phone or something else?
This is the beginning of a new journey and everyone want the new smartphones to be revealed at February.
Have patience and always remember that Nokia means quality...
Aaaaaaand...Nokia is still making phones with physical keyboards and a screen resolution 240p.
Good phone for listening to music, call and not leading a smartfone outside with a lack of battery charge
They're making huge money by releasing same type handsets?? Boring..

Nokia 150 isn't priced 35$ as you write but it is priced 26$.
216 Nokia MS recently launched much better memory, 2 flashes, colour Mint. All exclusive to 216. 150 is minus features, still priced 35$. Go for 216 much better with microsd card up to 256gb.

China assembles nokia phone so that people can have the ability to buy it. If it is from other country many may not have the ability to buy such phone. So wheather it is china or finland doesnt matter.

They were only a king when there were no smartphones and even then they were just the Apple of phones - people liked they for no good reason and they always gave the leafor the money. Motorola, Ericsson and Sony, Alcatel - they were all ahead of them. Just not in market share.
This phone's battery will really last longer because of the absence of a browser. Better than the Nokia 105. I'll surely buy one for myself as a secondary phone.
