Nokia Asha 210, The Most Stylish And Socially Adept Entry Level Phone Yet

Whatapp button (worlds first), Facebook and Twitter clients, Gmail, YahooMail and Nokia Mail support, these were just a few of the social network connectivity features of the Nokia Asha 210 that Nokia announced today dubbing it as the ultimate social network entry level phone to date, designed to offer consumers the most social experience at an affordable price.

The latest device in the Asha family is the by product of the Nokia and WhatsApp partnership dedicated to give users a free, fast and convenient access to instant messaging. WhatsApp is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows users to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Symbian giving users a wider audience. In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages.

The phone sports a Single or Easy Swap Dual-SIM capability, QWERTY keypad, Wi-Fi support, 2MP camera, Nokia Browser, Nokia Nearby and Nokia Slam wrap in a stylish and playful design.

With the phone's 2MP camera are some editing and sharing options, including:

- Self-portrait - for perfectly centered self portraits, even without a front-facing camera. The built-in voice guides the user to ensure they are in the frame, before taking the shot.
- Fast editing of images directly from the camera app and easy sharing of images to social networks.

Noki Slam enables the transfer of content such as images or videos to another Bluetooth-enabled phone without the need to pair devices. Nokia Xpress Browser on the other hand uses Nokia's cloud technology that reduces data consumption by up to 90 percent, helping people enjoy more affordable Internet access. Nokia Nearby is a web app that lets people discover points of interest such as restaurants, shopping and ATM machines close to their location.

Other key features for Nokia Asha 210 include:
- Social phonebook integration with the ability to launch WhatsApp direct from contact cards in the Phonebook
- Preloaded YouTube launcher for direct video streaming
- Chat screen notifications that keep users up-to-date on new conversations
- Nokia's renowned long battery life: up to 46 days with Single-SIM and up to 24 days with Dual-SIM

The Nokia Asha 210 is available in yellow, cyan, black, magenta, and white with an estimated retail price of $72 USD (PhP3,000) before taxes and subsidies and it is expected to start shipping in the second quarter of 2013.
