Microsoft has started selling the Nokia 230 Dual SIM feature phone in India with a price tag of Rs. 3,869. The phone was originally announced in November as the company’s first selfie-centric feature phone with a 2-megapixel front camera sensor and an LED flash.
The official Microsoft online store in the country has listed the Nokia 230 Dual SIM in Silver and Dark Silver color options. The phone also comes in a single SIM variant but that variant is yet to be launched in India.
The Nokia 230 Dual SIM features a 2.8-inch display that has 320 x 240 pixels (QVGA) resolution. The phone has a 2-megapixel rear camera sensor with a fixed focus lens and an LED flash and a 2-megapixel frontal camera sensor. Further, it sports a polycarbonate build with a sand-blasted aluminium back cover and 10.9mm thickness.
Microsoft has provided Gameloft integration to let you download one free game every month for a year. Also, the phone comes preloaded with Opera Mini browser as well as Microsoft apps such as MSN Weather and Bing Search. It runs on Series 30+ operating system.
The phone has built-in 16MB storage that can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. For connectivity, there is Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi and GPRS. It packs a 1,200mAh battery that is claimed to deliver up to 23 hours of talk time or 22 days of standby time on a single charge.
Microsoft online store is offering cash on delivery option and four-day free shipment. You can also make a call to the store to place an order for the new handset.

Although the Nokia 230 has a selfie camera to persuade some buyers, it does not have many features or even a decent app support to lead the market of affordable mobile devices. Moreover, it is targeted at the customers who are not exactly looking for a smartphone but a handset just to make and receive voice calls and to capture some selfies.
