Nokia has just launched Nokia 500, their latest Symbian-powered smartphone yesterday and I’m convinced that Nokia 500 is more or less perfect for those looking for a basic, affordable smartphone and still very much skeptical about buying Android or the iPhone.
There are many reasons why some folks are skeptical about Android and the iPhone. Most of them are not interested in expensive smartphones that require users to download and plug in paid third party apps to extend their functionalities. Most prefer to go out and buy a simple, affordable smartphone that allows them to access the social networks, help them find their way around with GPS and let them have some fun with funky music or crazy YouTube videos.

Well, if you’re that kind of person, you can now put Nokia 500 in your shopping list because Nokia’s latest smartphone is made perfect for such people. Nokia 500 has good looks, runs on a 1GHz processor, has a 5-megapixel camera, a 3.2” nHD capacitive touchscreen (supports pinch zoom!) and it is powered by Symbian Anna. It is quite powerful for an entry level touchscreen smartphone and Nokia believes their new smartphone will have an affordable price tag of €150. Nice! :)
