Nokia launched today five new models of low-end phones in order to strengthen its position in emerging countries.
The largest maker of mobile phones is dominant in many emerging markets with share of 60-70%, but is followed closely by rivals such as ZTE trying to improve their position in the low-end market.
New Nokia models are available in price range between 20 and 54 euros excluding taxes and fees to operators.
“The long battery life is vital for people in areas where access to electricity is limited. So some of the phones offer standby time for as long as 22 days.
Nokia said it will open its new service called Life Tools, which provides information on agriculture and education through mobile phones in Indonesia since December 2009.
