Display of Nokia Asha 210 :

The Nokia Asha 210 has a 2.4  inch QVGA display with a modest resolution of 320×240. Expecting HD at such a price point would be a stretch. But still the clarity of the screen is amazing. The UI elements and menu icons are swish. Navigating wouldn’t be much of a problem unless you are a touch screen fanatic.

OS , Hardware , Camera of Nokia Asha 210 :

The Nokia Asha 210 comes with Series 40 Symbian OS with Asha UI . Social networks are very deeply integrated into the device with Facebook and twitter access right away from the home screen. The UI takes hints of inspiration from Windows family and modifies it a bit further. The Asha 210 comes loaded with Nokia’s cloud based data compression enabled Xpress browser, and loads of pre-installed freebies. And a premium games subscription pack of 15 games. It also has support for web apps and YouTube streaming is supported.

The Asha 210 has a chip which is somewhere under 1 GHz. Though we strongly feel it can hold its own against the budget androids.

The rear shooter is 2megapixel, and there’s no front camera. Although the megapixel count is less. But from our general experience we know that Nokia’s cameras are  very clear. It comes with Self-portrait and options are there to share photos on social networks from within the Camera app.
The phone comes in two variants Single sim and Dual sim. It has 64 MB of flash storage. It can be expanded up to 32 GB using Micro SD card.

The best thing about the bundled Whatsapp service is that it will be lifetime subscription i.e. no extra yearly renewal charges. Pay once and use for a lifetime. 😀

Whatsapp has a monthly user base of 200 million active people. This much number of users in itself is staggering. And if even a fragment of new or existing users decide to shift to Nokia then it’s a win-win situation for both the companies.

“On a market by market basis we will have either Whatsapp or Facebook,” said Neil Broadley, marketing director for Nokia’s mobile phones division.

According to Broadley, there may also exist a possibility for a different phone catering to Chinese user base. Because China doesn’t have that deep Whatsapp or Facebook Usage. Rather their focus is on homegrown social networks. Which in itself is a commendable strategy.

The phone’s space bar wi-fi toggle is also another exciting feature.
