Microsoft has taken the wraps off its latest feature phone aimed at developing markets, the Nokia 230.

Microsoft has just launched the Nokia Lumia 230, a feature phone that includes a front-facing camera for selfies. The device will be aimed at developing markets and probably won’t hit our shores for a while if ever. The phone still bears the classic Nokia moniker, which Microsoft uses to differentiate it’s developing line from the more fully-featured Lumia handsets. Featuring a 2.8-inch QVGA (240×320) display, it runs on the Mediatek Series 30+ OS. Internal memory is a tiny 16MB, although a MicroSD card slot is provided for those who need the extra space. It features a sandblasted aluminium backplate, with the rest of the device a sturdy polycarbonate. Both the front and rear cameras are 2 megapixels, a stand out addition for such a cheap handset. The battery is also an impressive 1200mAh, which should help it last a quoted 27 days on standby.
