Dual SIM, Capacitive, Yet Affordable, The Nokia Asha 308 Full Specs

Of the two recently announced Nokia Asha devices, the Asha 308 captured my fancy, why... it has something to do with light, the Golden Light, one of its color variant. :) Not to take aside of course its brilliant specs and features but really, I got  huge attraction on something golden on a mobilephone like that of the Nokia E72 Topaz Brown before.

Anyways, the phone will  definitely bring great joy to people who cant afford expensive smartphones, the phone will only cost about $99 before tax and subsidies, thats about PhP4,500 in the local currency, but they can already experience somewhat identical features to that expensive ones with the phone being considered a full pledge smartphone itself by IDC.
