Far from the media frenzy at CES in Las Vegas, Microsoft has presented the Nokia 215 and 215 Dual-SIM, two very affordable 2G phones intended primarily for emerging markets.

Since they are only able to connect to the internet at low 2G speeds, the two devices come pre-installed with a range of adapted programs, including the Opera Mini browser and the Bing search engine, as well as Facebook, Messenger and Twitter.

The Nokia 215 has a battery life of around 29 days in standby mode (21 days for the Dual-SIM version), 50 hours of audio play or 20 hours of calling.

The Nokia 215 and 215 Dual-SIM will be available in certain markets in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa starting in Q1 2015 for the equivalent of $29 plus tax. This makes the new phones the most affordable in the Redmond-based company's line-up. Interestingly, Microsoft chose to maintain the Nokia brand name with these entry-level devices. Meanwhile, its Windows Phone terminals have shed the Nokia label and are now sold under the Microsoft Lumia banner.
