Helping more and more people around the world get online and stay connected, Microsoft introduces the Nokia 215 and Nokia 215 Dual-SIM.

With a price tag of just $29 before taxes and subsidies, Nokia 215 is our most affordable Internet-ready entry-level phone yet, perfectly suited for first-time mobile phone buyers or as a secondary phone for just about anyone.

I think I'm going to buy one of these, just to see how it holds up. It has most of the services I use on my phone, so I'm wondering if I can take the downgrade while enjoying the crazy awesome battery life.

I was thinking specifically of southern African languages, many of which have simpler orthographies and diacritics that are mostly supported by the standard set. There are plenty of these with tens of millions of speakers between them - Zulu, Xhosa, Tswana, Swazi, Bemba, etc. Languages like Lingala and Kikuyu are obviously going to need better script support than S30 provides. Anyway, this discussion is getting a bit pointless now, so you can have the last word if you want.
