Nokia Asha 210 – Nokia is definately not going up with the general trend of launching a large screen touchscreen phone whics is being followed by other leading brand. We were not expecting any sort of qwerty phones seeing the brands like samsung and other which are busy making just touchscreen phone. however Nokia did something which will make those useres happy who hate touchscreen phones and were feeling left out due to no new option avaiable in the market.
Nokia just now unveiled Nokia Asha 210 – its latest addition to the Asha family. This qwerty phones is available in both single and dual sim versions. Since it’s a qwerty phone this phone will definately be a good chioce for those who are habituated to instant messaging and as a cherry on the top this device has launched by Nokia in partnership with WhatsApp.
Nokia Asha 210 offers free lifetime subscription of WhatsApp along with a dedicated WhatsApp key. A very good offer by Nokia. This phones runs on S40 symbian version. Nokia Asha 210 comes preloaded with YouTube, Twitter and Facebook and has a 2MP camera with dedicated camera key. The phone’s battery is said to lasts for up to 46 days (single-SIM version), and up to 24 days (dual-SIM version). This backup is definately not possible on a touchscreen smartphone[Img Credits]
Nokia Asha 210 single SIM version
Nokia Asha has got a 2.4″ LCD screen of QVGA resolution (320 x 240 pixels) with a QWERTY keyboard as mentioned. Nokia Asha 210 is the first one to have a dedicated WhatsApp button. On the connectivity part, this gadget comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and a dedicated button for switching on/off the hardware. However this device lacks 3G features which is the only point which can make buyer drop it from their wishlist. Internal memory of thsi device is also limited to just 64 MB which is just too low to be noticed. Though it can be expanded upto 32 GB via micro SD card.

Nokia Asha 210 dual SIM version
Other than the features of single sim, this device has got an additional feature of one more sim which is hot swappable. That means you don’t need to turn off the device, and pull off the battery to take out the sim. It can be inserted and taken off in running condition from the slot located externally.
This device is expected to have a price tag of 3500-3900. This though has many interesting thing like WhatsApp integration and others but lack of 3G and video calling and even just 64 MB of internal memory will definately not work for the targeted audience in present scenario.
