The newly-announced Nokia 515 handset, which runs the company’s Series 40 software, emphasises why there’s still life in the more modest of mobile devices.

The sleek, one piece anodised aluminium device features an old-school alphanumeric keyboard and Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for those still adverse to touchscreen smartphone devices.

Thankfully, Series 40 isn’t completely devoid of smartphone-style apps. The Nokia 515 comes with YouTube and WhatsApp apps built in, while there’s also a Nokia Xpress web browser.

Nokia 515

The Nokia 515 measures 4.48 by 1.88 by 0.43 inches and weighs just 3.56 ounces. The only part that does not feel particularly high-end is the 320×240, 2.4-inch screen, which features a serviceable 166 pixels per inch. More exciting is the 5-megapixel rear camera, which boasts features such as voice-guided self-portraits and 100-degree panoramas. The phone also has advanced email and browser apps, as well as preloaded Facebook and Twitter apps.

Nokia 515 dual SIM handset is 3.5G compatible. As for memory, there is only 256MB of on-board space, but a microSD card slot is a welcomed addition.

Battery life is decent too, with Nokia quoting up to 10.4hrs (but half that if you’re using the 3G).
