Nokia Announces Budget Smartphone Nokia Asha 210

Tech giant Nokia on Wednesday unveiled a new addition to its Asha family, Asha 210. According to Nokia, the phone has been designed to offer consumers more social experiences. Asha 210 will launch in Q2 in parts of Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia for about $72 (before tax and subsidies) with single- and dual-SIM models available.


Yes, it’s not a new Windows Phone, or the rumored Lumia 928, and neither is it the Asha 501 touchscreen phone (as we speculated it may be). The Asha 210 has a QWERTY keyboard. But this is no ordinary Asha phone, as not only is the design closer to one we expect to see wrapped around one of Nokia’s Lumia phones, but it’s the first phone to come with a dedicated WhatsApp button. What new features do we get from this newly announced phone? Read on.

Outlook and Features

Nokia Asha 210 is compact and has a sleek, minimalistic aesthetic that’s similar to the Lumia. Save for the top of the phone (which houses a 3.5mm AV jack and Micro-USB port for charging), and a door on the left edge for the optional second SIM slot, its edges remain largely unblemished. It has a polycarbonate construction and a thin, severely bricklike shape. I especially welcome its smooth, almost chalky feel as well.

The Asha 210 measures 4.39 inches tall, 2.36 inches wide, and 0.46 inch thick. At 3.43 ounces, it’s lightweight and fits well in the hand. It comes in four other colors besides yellow: white, cyan, magenta, and black. The front includes a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, with a 320×240-pixel resolution. So, while it won’t display crisp HD video, text and menu icons still looked clear and easy to read when I handled it. Below the display are two selection keys, two buttons to make and end a call, a center navigation key, a shortcut camera button on the right, and a hot key on the left that will launch a certain social networking service

Asha 210 comes with a 2MP camera (resolution 600x1200p) which has features like editing and sharing options, says Nokia, according the listing on the company’s website.

Nokia says the single-SIM Asha 210 will keep going for an astonishing 46 days before needing a recharge. The Asha 210 is set to go on sale before the end of June, will come in several bright colors.
