Nokia has just revealed its 108 and 108 Dual SIM budget handsets that redefine the word budget. This camera phone is aimed at people in emerging markets who don't need 3G but could make use of a camera and amazing battery life.

The Nokia 108 might be cheap but it can still manage a lot, considering it costs less than a slab of dead cow in many restaurants: $29 (£18).

The camera is a basic VGA snapper whose photos can be viewed on the 1.8-inch colour screen and shared using Nokia's Slam sharing service. It also packs in Bluetooth for those posers with a headset who don't want to take this thing out of their pocket in public. Plus you get an FM radio, MP3 player and microSD support (up to 32GB). But we love the battery with 31 days on a charge on the 108 and 25 days on the 108 Dual SIM version.

The handsets come in white, black, cyan, yellow and red and will be available towards the back end of this year. But don't expect it to come to the UK as executive vice-president Timo Toikkanen points out this is aimed at, "those for whom mobile phone ownership was previously out of reach".

ee.co.uk - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
