  • Nokia Asha 230

    The Nokia Asha 230 is a budget smartphone due to hit the market in March, setting you back only $60. 

    The aggressively-priced smartphone sports a 2.8-inch, 320x240 pixel screen, 1.3 megapixel camera and 4GB storage. Nothing fancy, certainly, but it works as a sturdy, basic smartphone for those on a low budget. In some markets, Nokia plans to release a dual-SIM version.

    You can pick up this gadget in green, yellow, red, cyan, white and black.
