Nokia has brought out three new models for the new [easyazon-link asin=”B007AKLBM4″ locale=”us”]Asha Touch[/easyazon-link] line of mobile devices. These are the Nokia Asha 305, Nokia Asha 306 and Nokia Asha 311 handsets. They join the rest of the Asha Touch line which was unveiled in October 2011. Ten Asha phones are currently available in 130 markets.
Featuring a new touch-based user interface, the three models are Nokia’s solution to the demand for easy-to-use devices that carry smartphone-like features such as access to social networks and Wi-Fi connectivity, but do not carry the expensive price tag of high end devices.
The Nokia Asha 311 features a 3-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 320 x 240, 256 MB built-in memory, 1 GHz processor, Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities. It is available in pink, brown, blue, and black. The Nokia Asha 305, for its part, has an Easy Swap Dual SIM feature that helps users save on data costs, 3-inch capacitive touchscreen, and 2G GPRS to give instant Internet access. It has 64 MB internal memory, a 2 megapixel camera, and is available in dark gray, red, silver, and blue. Lastly, the Nokia Asha 306 is a inexpensive phone that offers Wi-Fi connectivity and 2G GPRS. Also available in silver, blue, red, and dark gray, this model does not carry the dual SIM feature.
All three models have the new Nokia Browser 2.0, a feature which helps cut down data consumption by as much as 90% by working with Nokia’s cloud technology. This innovation works by enabling web sites and apps to load faster on the phones. The handsets also come installed with Nokia Browser’s Download Manager which help users to save content off the Internet.
In the face of the ever-increasing number of new models unveiled daily by competing brands such as Apple, Samsung, and RIM, Nokia’s new inexpensive phones aim to pull up Nokia’s profit and market shares. Previously, the Finland-based company was hailed as king of the phone industry for fourteen years.
