Hands-on video with Nokia's back-to-basics 301
-Hello, I'm Luke Westaway for CNET, here at Mobile World Congress.
We're checking out Nokia's 301.
So, as you probably sussed as soon as you clapped eyes on it, the 301 is not your normal fancy smartphone.
Instead, it's a very, very basic mobile.
But that's no bad thing because it's very cheap.
Indeed, Nokia tells me that their phone is going to cost not too much more than â?¬65.
a 2.4-inch display.
That's not a touchscreen so you'll be relying on these physical keys down here.
It's got a 3.2 mega pixel camera at the back.
It's got this brightly colored Nokia style.
Looks a bit like the Lumia phones design-wise and it comes in a range of other colors, pink and blue; black and white are also included.
Because it's not doing very much 'cause it's quite basic, you should get decent battery life and the phone also feels quite sturdy.
So, hopefully it will be able to withstand the drop onto the floor.
Nokia is very proud of the browser on this phone
and that's because it compresses data down using Nokia's cloud server.
So, because you're using less data, that should save you some money.
The 301 is coming out between April and June.
It looks like quite a neat little device, very basic.
So, if you're looking for something uncomplicated, this might be it.
There are loads of really cheap Android smartphones out there now as well though.
So, when this comes out, it might be worth doing a bit of shopping around.
I'm Luke Westaway for CNET and this is Nokia's 301.
