The end of black and white

The Nokia 105 rightly got a lot of attention last week: a €15 phone with a 35 day stand-by battery life. This will improve tens of millions of peoples' lives.


Almost unnoticed in the press release, though was another milestone: Nokia says it has made its last phone with a black & white screen.

One of these plus a small 3G tablet or phablet might be a good combination for some people. After all, 12.5 hours talk time is longer than the standby time for some smartphones.
