Taking another step towards connecting the next billion consumers, Nokia today unveiled the Asha Touch family of mobile devices in India, introducing the full touch experience at new price points. The two new phone models – the Nokia Asha 305 and Nokia Asha 311 aim to expand the Asha smartphone family providing young, social consumers with a choice of phones to match their own lifestyle.
“The Nokia Asha 305 and Nokia Asha 311 will provide the Indian consumer with full touch capabilities at new price points and also deliver attractive and intuitive experience for connecting to the internet, to their friends, and to a world of entertainment, web apps and content” said D Shivakumar, Senior Vice President, IMEA, Nokia.
The beautifully crafted Nokia Asha 311 is a fast and fluid 3.5G capacitive touchscreen device, powered by a 1GHz processor to provide a great internet experience. The bright and edgy Nokia Asha 305 is a fun and affordable phone, featuring the exclusive Easy Swap dual SIM.
Consumers can easily stay connected with friends and family at the touch of a button as well as share files and links across their social networks. Furthermore, the Nokia Browser’s Download Manager feature helps consumers to manage external content easily, saving music, video or pictures on a memory card, while surfing the internet.
The Asha smartphone family is also getting positive support from developers and consumers. Nokia Store has just broken the 5 billion downloads landmark. From January to April, 42% of all content downloaded from Nokia Store was delivered to Asha and other Nokia devices based on the Java ecosystem. Just one year ago, that number was 10%. Also, there are 410 Nokia developers with apps which have achieved more than 1 million downloads. Indiagames and Pico Brothers just passed 100 million.
The Nokia Asha 311 also comes with 15 levels of Angry Birds pre-loaded onto the phone, perfect for making the most of the touchscreen and 1GHz processor.
