Nokia unveils 4 cheap basic phones

Nokia Oyj unveiled on Thursday four new cheap phone models, aiming to protect its dominant market share on emerging markets (Nokia controls more than 50 percent of phone sales in India and Africa).

The four new simple phone models will be priced, excluding possible operators’ subsidies and local taxes, from 30 euros ($36.9) to 45 euros ($55.4). In Indian rupees the prices will range from Rs 1729 to Rs 2593.

Two of the new phones, including the cheapest 30 euro model (Rs 1729), will enable usage of two different SIM cards (or dual SIM). --------
