The Nokia 100 is a discontinued basic 2G feature phone released by Nokia on 25 August 2011. The mobile phone was aimed at emerging markets and budget-conscious consumers, and could be bought carrier-unlocked for a relatively low price (€20 or U.S. $30 at launch).[1][2]

It should not be confused with the original Nokia 100 from 1993, which was a consumer version of the 1992 Nokia 101.[3]

The phone had a color display, an integrated flashlight, an FM radio,[1] and automatic voice alarm.[4] It was released in blue, pink, black, and red colours.[1]

The device runs on the Series 30 software platform, supports up to five separate address books, and is able to store personalisation data for up to five separate SIM cards.[1] The phone also comes with the Solitaire game.[4]

In emerging markets, the phone came with Nokia Life Tools, and with Nokia Money in India.[1]

Nokia 100 is available in a number of languages depending on which territory it is marketed for. Models sold in South Asia support at least twelve languages: English, Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Bengali, Telugu, Punjabi, Kannada, Malayalam, Assamese and Odia. Models sold in the United Kingdom support four languages: English, French, German and Italian.
