News Review: Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK), Research In Motion Limited (NASDAQ:RIMM )

The countdown has begun. In less than 2 months, Research In Motion Limited (USA)(NASDAQ:RIMM ) will unveil the first BlackBerry 10 devices. And we now have the list of accessories for the new phone. In addition to the stylish leather swivel holster, there is the multimedia dock, and  hard shell and flip cover cases in a number of colors, like red, grey, black and white. Neither images nor price list is available as of now. All that we know now is that the Canadian company will officially launch the phone on January 30th, 2013.

Meanwhile Finnish phone maker Nokia Corporation (ADR)(NYSE:NOK) has quietly released a new phone. And while there has been no press release (which is quite strange), the product can be seen on the company’s website.

Well, the new phone is the Nokia 114, a low-end phone with the ability to hold two different SIM cards at one time. This phone does not have a similar single SIM counterpart and while it does resemble the Nokia 109, it has a distinct look of its own.

The 114 has a 1.8-inch 128×160 pixels display, 1080mAh battery, VGA camera with video recording capability, Bluetooth 2.1, and a standard set of Nokia feature phone apps like calendar, alarm, calculator etc.

Although it is now available only on Nokia’s India website, it will surely be soon offered in other emerging markets also.
