Mobile World Congress is happening this week, and we're slowly getting a better picture of what Google's new "Android Go" initiative will look like. Android Go is a special configuration of Android 8.1 (with a selection of special "Go" apps) that targets low-end devices with 1GB of RAM or less.

MWC has seen a ton of manufacturers sign up for the program and announce phones shipping with the Go config, so it's time for a hardware roundup.

We often tend to get tunnel vision and focus on expensive flagships, so here's a roundup of upcoming 100 dollar Android Go phones. These are neat little phones for a decent price.

The Nokia 1 is perfect

That Nokia 1 is obviously the spiritual successor to the Windows Phone based Nokia 520/521, probably the best sub-$100 phone Nokia has ever put out. Same price point, same general design, removable battery, SD card slot, and interchangeable backs. It's the perfect phone for a no frills, "get the job done" communications device.

Damn, I really miss Windows Phone.
