Nokia Asha 501 unveiled

May 22nd, 2013

The latest budget range phone Asha 501 by Nokia has been unveiled for the emerging markets such as Indian and Latin America. It sports a 3-inch touch screen and is available in numerous vibrant colors, all at a price of $99!

Anybody would guess, this phone wouldn’t appeal to people who have been using premium smartphones but it sure takes its looks from Nokia’s Lumia range of premium handsets. The phone is equipped with the Asha operating system and features a grid of application icons similar to iOS. Among the installed apps are some essentials such as Facebook and Twitter.
The Asha 501 uses a plastic casing, so it can actually be changed quite easily in case it’s damaged or you’re simply bored of it. (Girls would surely love to switch colors to match their outfit.)
The downside is that the phone uses only 2G networks and thus the users wouldn’t be able to access high speed internet. In other words, this phone is designed specifically for countries such as India where 2G networks have a larger user base.
Overall, this phone would a fine smartphone upgrade for someone who has been using basic phones. Another feature, as some would call it, is the sturdiness and strong build quality of the 501 which can most likely withstand a few mild falls quite easily.
The phone is likely to be launched in India in June 2013 while UK would get it in the 3rd quarter of 2013. Given the low features and lack of 3G and 4G network compatibility, the phone may not see a US launch.
For those of you who do plan to get your hands on one of these, try out the Nimbuzz application on the Asha 501 to stay connected on various social platforms. Source: http://reviews.cnet.com/cell-phones/nokia-asha-501/4505-6454_7-35757120.html

A while back Nokia announced their Windows 8 phone – Lumia 920. The device was announced at the manufacturer’s event in New York on 5th September, 2012. The Lumia 920 is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU (the same one that drives the current US supremos, the HTC One X and Galaxy S III).It also features a ‘better than HD’ 1,280 x 768 LCD display, PureView imaging (albeit with only 8 megapixels), NFC capabilities and a 2,000mAh battery with wireless charging. From the outside, it may appear as though not much has changed but with Windows 8 powering the very core of this device, there is a lot more to it.- (more…)
