More of a heads up but due out in the next few months!
If 2014 was the year of the gadget bargain, then 2015 looks like the year that affordable handsets get supercharged. Microsoft has just unveiled the Nokia 215, a wallet-friendly handset with an absolutely mammoth battery life.
The 215 costs just $29 (£18.99), yet manages an astonishing 29 days on standby. That's for the single SIM version. The dual SIM variant lasts a still very respectable 21 days before needing a recharge. Which will be a godsend if you're travelling and only need a phone in case of emergencies.
It also offers full web access using the Opera Mini browser, Bing search, MSN Weather, Twitter and Facebook. Instant notifications mean you're always in the loop, while it also packs all the standard features you'd expect from a budget blower: a built-in torchlight, 20 hours talk time, MP3 playback, FM radio and a VGA camera.
Microsoft doesn't have a UK price or launch date yet, but it has said it will launch in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia in the first three months of this year. Keep your eyes peeled, as we'll let you know the latest info as soon as we hear it.
Obviously these are not first choice mobiles for most but definitely worth buying just for a spare emergency phone! I know I'll be buying one :)http://gadgetshow.channel5.com/news/nokia-215-%C2%A320-phone-lasts-month-single-charge
