Nokia outs budget phone pair

Two-Sim simple handset

High performance access to file storage

Nokia has unwrapped a couple of budget phones this morning, pitching the 110 and 112 as internet devices despite their - by modern standards - tiny 1.8in, 128 x 160 screens.

The two dual-band handsets can take two Sims, mind, handy for mixing business and pleasure.

There's a variant of the 110, called the 111, which has but one Sim slot. However, it's a quad-bander, so it'd be my choice out of the three for a cheap voice phone. Or would be if I hadn't just bought a Nokia C1-02 to replace my now-abandoned smartphone.

Other specs include a 0.3Mp camera, FM radio and a Micro SD slot for storage - cards of up to 32GB capacity are supported.

The 112 is fractionally bigger and heavier than the 110, but there's not a lot in it. The 112's advantages over the 110? A slightly bigger battery - for 14 hours' talk time to the 110's 10.5 hours - and the inclusion of eBuddy instant messaging software.

The 110 and 111 will retail for around €35 (£28), while the 112 will cost €38 (£30). It'll be out in Q3; the 110 and 111 will be out later this quarter. ®
