Since when is a FM radio essential? And who is gonna learn English on their budget phone? Why is it so hard for manufacturer to resist bloating their products? Put those resources into improving the speaker and microphone instead so that you can use the phone as a good... phone.

On the other hand: at least they didn't put a 1.3MP camera in there! Yay.

you'd be surprised to hear that many major U.S. cell phones do not include an fm radio, and nokia is one of the few to include them. Why pay $600 for an overpriced iphone when it doesn't even offer ubiquitous radio music, at a cost of zero dollars extra in monthly subscriptions compared to the tens of dollars spent towards internet, which is still a luxury in every country where it's not guaranteed subsidy for basic 1.5mbps like Finland...

That Nokia 105 reminds me of the Dual Sim Nokia X1 I bought a couple of while ago. 3 weeks battery life and active dual networks is everything I need from a PHONE not a toy.

Nice, my father will appreciate that, since smartphones are very hard for him.

I could keep it in mind as well if I go for a second number as I plan.

I have my Galaxy S1 to play and a nokia 105 for... well you know making calls, will be great.
