Nokia today announced the launch of two budget mobile phones in India. The Nokia 101 is a dual SIM music phone while Nokia 100 has slot for a SIM card.
With its dual SIM capability, the phone makes it convenient for consumers to access calls and texts over two different networks. Additionally, consumers can stay entertained with the integrated MP3 player, FM radio, a 103 phon loudspeaker and carry their entire music collection in the 16 GB expandable memory.
The Nokia SIM manager allows users to select which SIM card to use to make a call or send a text message while helping them manage costs and maintain network coverage without needing several phones. In addition, the SIM manager allows users to store settings of up to five SIM cards on the phone, and to personalise them by assigning names and logos for each SIM setting.
