Nokia's affordable new dual SIM phone will hit the Middle East market towards the end of the year.

The Nokia C2, priced at an estimated EUR 45 (AED 197), keeps both SIM cards active so calls and messages can come to either number while the phone is switched on. It supports micro-SD cards of up to 32GB and features an MP3 player, FM radio with radio recording, a VGA camera and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Nokia C2 was announced by the firm as a new addition to their Cseries line of mobile phones at an event in Kenya last week.

"By simply holding down a key, people are able to switch between SIM cards. This enables them to take advantage of reduced call rates, flexibility when traveling from one country to another, or helps with sharing a phone within a family and still use their own SIM," said Alex Lambeek, vice president at Nokia. "This is a great added convenience feature considering the low price of the phone."

Other models introduced in the Cseries line include the dual SIM colour screen Nokia C1-00 phone, and the single SIM colour screen phones C1-01 and C1-02. The three range in price from EUR 30 to EUR 39 but the C2, which is the only model slated for a Gulf release, costs EUR 45.

At the same event, Nokia also unveiled their Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit, marketed as an alternative and environmentally friendly charging solution for people with limited access to electricity. It consists of a charger, a small electrical generator and a special holder to secure the phone to the bike. Once installed, the generator can use wheel motion to charge the handset.

The company however added that the bike charger would not be released in the Middle East.
