Hot on the heels of the new Symbian Belle phones are two Nokia phones that yet again redefine affordability. Meet the Nokia 100 and Nokia 101 - both are S30 phones targeting developing markets and have color screens and long lasting batteries on offer.
The Nokia 101 is slated to cost just €25 ($35) but packs quite a bit of features - it's a dual-SIM phone (900/1800MHz), with a 1.8" 128x160 pixels display, microSD card slot (for cards up to 16GB), MP3 player, 3.5mm audio jack, FM radio and a powerful 103-phon loudspeaker.
The Nokia 101 also packs a flashlight and an 800mAh battery that's good for up to 6 hours 40 minutes of talk time, 25 days of standby and 26 hours of music playback (with headset at 50% loudness).

The Nokia 100 is cheaper still at €20 ($30) and is a single-SIM device that is stripped of everything but the essentials. It has an FM radio and the same color screen as the 101. It's battery lasts even longer - up to 7 hours of talk time and 35 days of standby. It has a flashlight too and comes in a wide variety of colors.
Here's a promo video for the Nokia 100:
Both the Nokia 100 and 101 support multiple phonebooks to facilitate sharing the phone between several people and pack Nokia's Live Tools, which are designed to help people in developing countries.
The Nokia 101 will come out this quarter, while the Nokia 100 is coming in the final quarter of this year.
