Today Nokia introduced the Nokia 108 and the Nokia 108 Dual SIM, two ultra-affordable camera phones designed to give people purchasing their first-ever camera phone the opportunity to capture, share and play.
Compared to the already available Nokia 105, the Nokia 108 brings new features including a VGA camera, at a low price point of just USD $29. Considering the low cost of the Nokia 108, it's also ideal for people who require an additional phone, either as a backup, or just as a companion in a situation when you don't want to use a smartphone.

With the inclusion of Nokia's Slam technology, you can share those photos and videos, as well as other content between devices using Bluetooth. Slam is compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled phones, including Android and Windows Phone 8.
In terms of battery life, you can expect to see a standby time of up to 31 days for the single SIM version and up to 25 days? standby for the dual SIM variant. Both have a talk time of up to 13.8 hours. Additionally, for music fans, the Nokia 108 has a music playback time of 40.8 hours.
