Microsoft Still Not Giving Up On Featurephones, Outs Nokia 230


A brand-new feature phone from Microsoft

Microsoft has unexpectedly released their newest phone – no it’s not a Lumia, it’s the Nokia 230, possibly the swankiest featurephone you’ll ever see. The phone is equipped with an aluminum back that adds an extra layer of class to an otherwise unremarkable device. The 230 sports a 2.8-inch, QVGA display with 240 x 320 resolution, as well as 16MB of RAM.

There’s no internal storage to speak of, and the phone relies on microSD cards – up to 32GB – for storage. The Series 30+ keeps everything running, and both front and back cameras have 2-megapixel sensors and flash.
