Nokia lifts lid on Asha 210, with dedicated WhatsApp key

Nokia aren’t just focusing on the Lumia range of Windows Phone handsets. They still produce slightly less smart-smartphones for the more budget conscious consumer. So today, the company has decided to lift the lid on its latest handset; the Asha 210.

  • 2.4-inch QVGA landscape LCD display
  • Up to 10MB free user memory; up to 32GB micro-SD card
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900,GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth v2.1 with EDR
  • 2MP rear camera @ 1600 x 1200 pixels
  • WhatsApp Button and Nokia Slam
  • Series 40 Asha UI
  • 111.5 x 60 x 11.8mm, 99.5g (including battery)
  • 46 days standby, 12 hours (2G) talk-time; Dual-SIM 23 days standby
  • 40 hours continuous music playback

Also included, is a voice controlled assistant for self portraits to compensate for the lack of front facing camera. There's also plenty of colors to choose from with the phone coming in yellow, cyan, black, magenta and white.

A dual-SIM edition of the phone will be available. Making use of Nokia’s unique Easy Swap technology, you can swap one of the SIMs, through a slot on the side, without having to power the phone off. The phone also remembers the settings for up to five different SIM cards.

With the budget conscious in mind, the Asha 210 will be available in the coming weeks, without any operator subsidies and local taxes, costing around $72.
