A while back we heard that Microsoft was cancelling all non-Lumia products in the Nokia line-up in order to be able to better focus on their Windows Phone devices. However it seems that doesn’t apply to the fan-favorite basic device from Nokia, such as the Nokia 130 announced today.
The Nokia 130 is a basic feature phone (S30), boasting the music and video playback options on the go, the phone also has a dedicated LED for use as a flashlight, radio connectivity and the usual insane standby battery life (up to 36 days).
It’s nice to see that Microsoft are continuing to create lower end phones for the developing market, or phones for people who simply just want a phone that makes call (*gasp*), although the Asha and Nokia X lines are over, it’s nice to see that the first Nokia’s that we all grew to love are still alive and kicking.

Microsoft have not announced a release date for the Nokia 130, but is expected to be available “soon” and should be available for purchase in most of Asia and Africa.
