The Nokia 301 comes in two configurations, a single and EasySwap dual SIM model. The single SIM boasts up to 39 days of standby time, while the dual SIM lasts up to 34 days on standby. It comes in five colors: cyan, yellow, magenta, black and white. The Nokia 301 starts at EUR 65 (about Php 3,500) and should arrive around Q2.

As the successor to the Nokia 1280, the Nokia 105 is a basic mobile phone, with FM radio, speaking clock, and flashlight. Featuring a 1.45-inch colored screen, the device has a dust- and splash-proof keypad with battery life lasting up to a month. The Nokia 105 is a simple device and comes in black and cyan for EUR 15 (about Php 800), a pretty cheap backup phone that should start rolling out in Q1.
