Nokia Announces New Asha Devices

Nokia finally revealed what it brings for us at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. The Finnish mobile manufacturer Nokia announced three new Asha devices – including the Asha 202, 203 and 302. Furthermore, the company also announced that it is bringing its Lumia 900 in Canada and Europe.

In fact, Asha units are ‘Series 40’ devices, meaning that these are low-end smartphones as well as smartphone/featurephone mixes for the rising markets. The Asha 202 and 203 belongs to latter category. Although, these are primarily the same phone, the only difference is an easy SIM-swap support in Asha 203.

Asha handsets feature a numeric keypad and a 2.4-inch display. All these devices launch with Nokia Life, a host of apps and features focused on education, healthcare, agriculture and finance.

Furthermore, the two devices will launch with a gift package of 40 famous Electronics Arts games. The devices will be expected to go on sale within next 6 weeks, with pricing start at 60 euros.

As far as Asha 302 is concerned, it is designed to target the high-end customers. The device will come preloaded with Push email, Twitter and Facebook. It features a GHz processor that makes it “faster than many low-end Androids.” The device also features support for 3.5G data speeds.

Moreover, the device also comes with support for Microsoft’s Mail for Exchange that makes it much more appealing to business users. The device is immediately available for sale at a price of 95 euros.

In addition to this, the company has also announced that its Lumia 900 which is already on sale in US will soon be hitting Canada with Rogers in April. The device will come to Europe somewhere in second quarter with a price tag of 480 euros.
