Nokia will continue to sell Asha phones, an affordable brand of feature phones. Despite of reported decline in sales of the Asha line-up will be releasing new feature phones in the coming days and that’s according to the Nokia CEO Stephen Elop himself.
The market has been steadily switching from feature phones to affordable Android smartphones and honestly I don’t think releasing new feature phones would help increase sales.
Nokia has recently announced the Nokia Asha 210, a budget phone with a full Qwerty keyboard. The phone has a dedicated What’s App button or a Facebook button on some markets. It also comes with integrated FIacebook and Twitter app. The Asha 210 has a big, beautiful keyboard which is well spaced and gives excellent typing experience. The phone has a 2.4-inch QVGA display with 320 x 240 pixels. The phone also boasts a 2-megapixel rear camera.
The Nokia Asha 210 is available in yellow, black, white, magenta and cyan colors. It will be available Q2, 2013.
