Feature phones are still active in the market. They serve a very high purpose - of keeping all blue-collar people active 24/7. You'll find many a mastermind simultaneously wielding a smartphone and a feature phone, the latter tucked and veiled inside like a dagger for when the former runs out of juice.
The new Nokia 216 rocks a dual SIM in a durable polycarbonate shell. We haven't tried playing rugby with it yet, but we do remember the Nokias of yore.
The 216 supports a memory card of up to 32GB and comes with front and back VGA cameras. The rear camera also has a LED flash.
The Nokia 216 Dual SIM lets you download apps and games from the Opera Mobile Store and also offers one free Gameloft game every month, for a year… (We still want to play rugby with it).
It has all the basic ingredients of a regular phone, like music and video player, Bluetooth audio support and… any guesses? FM radio! Been a while since we saw one of those.
The Nokia 216 Dual SIM will be available in India from October 24 for ₹2,495.
