Nokia Asha 210 smartphone launches

The phone was teased yesterday and true to its word, Nokia has announced the Asha 210.

Not the kind of phone to worry the top of the range, this is what Nokia describe as a 'social' phone, with a price that's very easy on the wallet. Although that does mean features to match. Yes, you get a QWERTY keyboard for easy messaging and the option of single or dual-SIM, as well as a dedicated WhatsApp button to access the cross-platform messaging app, plus easy access for Facebook and Twitter and support for popular email accounts such as Gmail.

But a 2-megapixel camera isn't exactly 2013, even with self-portrait and fast editing modes, nor is a 2.4-inch QVGA screen and 64MB of storage. But on the flipside, there is a microSD slot to boost storage to 32GB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a long battery life - up to 46 days with single-SIM and up to 24 days with dual-SIM.

The Nokia Asha 210 is available in yellow, cyan, black, magenta, and white, expected to sell in the US for $72. No UK price as yet, but shipping over is in the second quarter of 2013. Which is anytime now.
