Few months ago Nokia launched its new Asha series smartphones that really did well in the market. Now they have expanded the Asha Series with launch of new Asha Touchscreen phones, Asha 311, Asha 305 and Asha 306. Similar to earlier Asha series, these new releases are also based on Symbian S40 operating system. But the best part of these devices is that they are the first ever Low-Cost budget Touch Screen smartphones. Nokia Mobile’s EVP Mr. Mary McDowell also said the similar thing “By introducing the Asha Touch phones to the market, we're accelerating our commitment to connect the next billion consumers”.
Such low costs smartphones are doing pretty good in today’s emerging market were consumer demand is increasing for the budget devices. As per the stats, a reports says that last year 105 million low-cost budget touchscreen smartphones were sold all around the world. I guess Nokia has planned to attract more and more customers with the same strategy with the launch of Asha 311,305 and 306, as Mary McDowell said above. He also added “These phones deliver on what young, urban people value most -- a great-looking device; and an intuitive and affordable experience for connecting to the internet, to their friends, and to a world of entertainment, web apps and content”.
Just like previous few handsets, Nokia is going to bundle 40 free video games of EA sports including NFS, Tetris, FiFa 12 and many more. Out of these three handsets, Asha 311 will also feature the most played game on Smartphone last year, Angry Bird. Apart from games, Asha Touch series also comes with built-in Nokia Browser 2.0 with Finns' cloud technology that saves your data upto 90 %. This allows you to load sites up to 3 times faster. Out of all these three phones, you get one more bonus with Asha 305 where along with the cool touchscreen you also get access to Dual Sims. Get all details about Nokia Asha Touch Series
