Nokia Asha 210 Goes Official: $72 QWERTY Phone With Facebook/WhatsApp Button
You’ve probably heard of the Nokia teaser from a few days ago, that show a bit of a QWERTY keyboard. Now Nokia solved the mystery and unveiled a new Asha series handset, the Nokia Asha 210. This handset will be available in a dual SIM and single SIM version and it will be priced at $72.
The device packs a 2.4 inch LCD display with a QVGA resolution (320 x 240 pixels) and a 4 row QWERTY keyboard. Nokia Asha 210 is meant for the younger public, as shown by the colourful case you can see in the pics. Nokia Asha 210 is actually the first phone to feature a dedicate WhatsApp button, an answer to the recent Facebook Phone release HTC First, probably.
The Asha 210 has WiFi connectivity and a dedicated WiFi On/OFF button, but there’s no 3G or 4G available, in case you’re wondering. The device has dual band GPRS/EDGE and also microUSB and Bluetooth. It has a 2 megapixel camera at the back, but there’s no front camera. Also, the internal memory is 64 MB and there’s a microSD card slot for extra storage. The device will be available from this quarter, in yellow, black, cyan, magenta or white. This is a Series 40 handset, that will be available with a Facebook button in Europe and Latin America and with the WhatsApp button in Asia Pacific and Middle East/Africa.
