Nokia 114 launched; first-ever device supporting Urdu and 11 other languages
Nokia has just launched its new feature phone – the Nokia 114 for a price of Rs. 2,579. This new player amongst Nokia feature phone range is a successor to the much renowned Nokia 100 and seems the same kind of value-for-money device. In a twist to the tale, Nokia amongst other languages has added support for Urdu which is a first among phones.
“Given the regional diversity of our country, ability to communicate in the regional language has come across as a key expectation amongst our consumers. We were the first mobile company to support content and user interface in 11 Indian languages in India. Introducing Urdu keymat in Nokia 114 is another such initiative to reach out to our consumer across the country.” Says, Mr. P.Balaji, Managing Director, Nokia India.
After the Nokia-Microsoft deal, we had lost hopes regarding device launches, but it seems that some of the stuff is going on as before. The Nokia 114 besides Urdu supports also comes with cloud-accelerated Nokia Xpress browser, which they claim will cut down consumers’ data usage by 90% by compressing content in the cloud. The Nokia 114 is a dual-SIM phone with easy Swap technology which allows the phone to remember as many as 5 SIM cards.
It looks just like Nokia feature phones from around a decade ago and we would recommend it for people who love to go old school.
