If you thought feature phones were a dying industry, think again. Of the 396 million feature phone units that were sold during the course of last year, Nokia's brand was on 35 million of them.
Just before it officially sells its feature phone division, Microsoft has today unveiled the Nokia 216, a new feature handset aimed at buyers with the most modest budgets in emerging markets.
After rumors started swirling a few days ago, it now looks like things are becoming official and that Microsoft will indeed sell its feature phone business, and the licensed Nokia name to Foxconn.
Microsoft has announced the Nokia 222, an ultra-low-cost handset with web connectivity, rear camera, microSD card slot, services such as Skype and Facebook, and up to 29 days of battery life, for $37.
Feature phones need some lovin' too; Facebook has announced that they have now recorded over 100 million users accessing the social network using their Facebook for Every Phone app.
In a new television advert shared on Facebook, Nokia has unveiled its Asha 501 handset. The 501, which looks a bit like a Lumia handset, is intended for the developing mobile market across the world.
