The Nokia Asha 210 is a social networking smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard and a dedicated WhatsApp button.
Yesterday, we reported that Nokia were going to unveil a new QWERTY phone today. The device in question has now been unveiled and is a social networking phone called the Nokia Asha 210.
The Asha range is a more affordable alternative to Nokia's premium Lumia range . The Asha range tend to cater for the younger market and run on Nokia's Series 40 platform , rather than Windows Phone 8.
The Nokia Asha 210 is an affordable mobile with the standout hardware feature being the inclusion of a full QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard sits below a 2.4 inch display (320×240 pixels) that supports up to 65.000 colours.
When it comes to connectivity you get support for both Bluetooth and WiFi. Bluetooth connectivity is enhanced by the inclusion of "Nokia Slam" which enables you to transfer files without having to pair devices.
The Asha 210 comes with a 2 mega-pixel camera and supports microSD cards (up to 32GB) . Nokia's mobile weighs under 100g and has dimensions of 111.5 x 60 x 11.8 mm , while it'll be available in both single-SIM and dual-SIM versions.
The QWERTY keyboard instantly transforms the Asha 210 into a great social networking mobile. However, things get even better because social networking is at the very core of Nokia's new smartphone.
The Asha 210 comes pre-loaded with Nokia's "WhatsApp" button which gives you instant access to the cross-platform instant messaging service. Furthermore, it also comes pre-loaded with Facebook and Twitter applications.
The 2 mega-pixel camera has some excellent features including a "Self-Portrait" mode which helps make sure you get your full face on your profile pictures. You can also edit photos inside the camera application , so they are totally ready to go live on your Facebook profile.
The Nokia Asha 210 will land in the second quarter of 2013 and will be available in yellow, cyan, black, magenta and white. We expect the mobile to be priced around £50 when it lands in the UK.
