Announced at MWC 2013, Nokia 105 presents itself with a price of just 15€ and a marathon 842 hour standby time. Running the company's ancient Symbian Series 30 operating system, the Nokia 105 measures in at 14.3mm thick and a mere 70g in weight with the compact device featuring just a 1.4-inch 128 x 128p LCD display. The storage specs are also old-school: 384kB of RAM and 8MB of flash memory. Some extra niceties are a splash and dustproof keyboard, flashlight and FM radio.
"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity
is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth.
