Nokia Asha 210 looks much like a white QWERTY BlackBerry. The specifications of the phone reflects the phone’s target market. Equipped with a 2.4 inch 240 x 320 resolution screen with a S40 UI, the phone will definitely be Nokia’s flagship if it was launched 8 years ago. It also has a 2-megapixel rear camera and 64MB of internal phone memory. However, storage is expandable with a microSD card. Its battery capacity is rated at 1200mAh.
Asha 210 will be a great backup phone because of its standby time, a an important feature which has long be forgotten ever since smartphones came into play. The single SIM version of Asha 210 is said to have a standby time of 46 days while the dual SIM to be at 24 days. This phone should be NSmen’s best friend in camp if it was brought into our local market. What’s better? It will only costs around 100SGD.
Nokia Asha 210’s keyboard layout is the same as previous QWERTY phones from Nokia. The classic navigation pad, call answering and denying button and 2 selection buttons gives previous Nokia fans a nostalgic feeling, reminding us of the days when Nokia phones were known to be the best in the world. Additionally on the Asha 210, there is a dedicated WhatsApp button and a Camera button, making it the first phone ever to have a direct hardware shortcut to WhatsApp messaging. Some people even call this a WhatsApp feature phone. The QWERTY keypad also provides shortcut buttons to WLAN/Bluetooth activation etc.
Nokia Asha 210 should not be considered a smartphone but there are still many great applications for this device. This social-oriented feature phone is also built in with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and many other applications.
We believe that Asha 210 will be sold soon in developing markets. This legendary phone will definitely suit those who needs basic phone features and long battery life.
