If you think all handsets in production have gone Smartphone, they haven’t. Nokia is releasing one more handset in their Asha series, Asha 205. Launching alongside Asha 205 is Nokia 206, one of Nokia’s handsets with a numpad feature. The two mobile phones share most of their features.
Asha 205 and Nokia 206 come with Nokia’s all new quick-sharing media via Bluetooth called Nokia Slam. So far, the Slam is the most noteworthy feature of A205 and N206. Nokia Slam transfers data quickly and easily based on proximity and without need for pairing devices. All that’s required is for the sending device to send the file through a Slam request, and the receiving device to accept the transfer. The Slam feature is also compatible with Android phones, and probably with the Lumia Series if Nokia could get Windows 8 to cooperate with the endeavor.
Asha 205 and Nokia 206 are both powered with Series 40 and preloaded with social networking apps including Facebook, Twitter and eBuddy messenger. They also have easy-swap Dual SIM features.The hardware for both phones is light but sturdy and solid as with other Nokia devices.
Nokia’s latest cellular phones are aimed at emerging markets and are priced rightly so at $62 exclusive of taxes. They are great options for social network users who are looking for durable and affordable phones. These would also be perfect for students and other users who do not have budget or need for highly expensive smartphone units.
