At first glance you are probably thinking, “Why exactly are you showing us a boring looking old school cellphone?” Although many of us want the latest and greatest devices in our pocket, some simply want a phone to do what a phone was originally intended to do, make calls. The new Nokia 130 & 130 Dual Sim phones from Microsoft and Nokia, come loaded with Series 30+ software and feature a 1.8-inch color screen, old school nine-button keypad, built-in FM Radio, and a microSD slot for up to 32GB of storage.
The reason we are sharing this with all of you is because both 130 models have a standby time of up to 36 days. Yes, days. That means these would make great emergency or camping phones to stuff into your pack and forget about it until needed. The built-in FM Radio means you can access emergency radio towers nearby for local weather alerts as well. The dual SIM card slot lets you use the phone with two separate numbers. So, let’s say you’re going on an adventure but don’t need your larger smartphone. You can move your SIM card into the 130 along with a cheaper phone plan for emergencies only and now you have both with you on your travels. There is also a handy LED light on the back.
At only $25, it makes it even more enticing. Learn more about the new phones at Nokia.
