Nokia 305, 306, 311 leak out, might bring overhauled Series 40 or Meltemi
Nokia has seen its sales take a deep plunge in the smartphone segment, but when it comes to feature phones it also needs a boost in its lineup, and that’s what the newly leaked Nokia 305, 306 and 311 might do. Nokia is allegedly gearing up for an event tomorrow in Pakistan where the three new handset will get officially announced. The phones are said to feature an all-touch interface based on Series 40, but with some very interesting additions.

People who have seen the platform say there will be a lot borrowed from MeeGo, with three home screen, a drop down notification shade and no separate menu button. One of the three home panels instead will host the app drawer, another will allow quick access to contacts and websites and the third one takes care of media like the music player, radio, and phone. Could this be Meltemi? We don’t know yet, but all clues point to either this or a big refresh of Series 40.

As to the models themselves, the Nokia 305 and 306 look like very similar, possibly differing only in dual-SIM card support. The Nokia 311 seems to be the higher end model among them, with a more capable camera. Here’s what the rumor mill says about the models:
  • Nokia 305 dual-SIM, 2MP
  • Nokia 306 single-SIM, 2MP
  • Nokia 311 WCDMA/WIFI, 3G, 3.2MP, multitouch display, 1,000mAh battery

The specs don’t look hugely encouraging, but don’t forget that the devices are affordable, not aiming sky-high for technical innovation. Check out the pictures below, and stay tuned - tomorrow we might have the final details.

We won't cover it live, but will keep you posted about everything that happens there. Exciting stuff, if S40 indeed borrows from MeeGo!

Dude no body wants to go to that terrorist country to cover that event live. I wonder what nokia is doing in Pakistan when they could easily arrange the event in India or China or Europe.

I solely created an account to reply to you sir
FIRSTLY WE ARE NOT A TERRORIST COUNTRY MIND IT!
we have lost 30000+ lives fighting against terrorism

As far as what Nokia is doing in Pakistan??
is well simply Pakistan is essentially a huge telecom market
A population of around 177.1 million
and cellular subscription of about 107 million
I'd say that it is a major market considering the ratio
oh might I add at the Nokia event when the first windows phone were announced Nokia Specifically mentioned Pakistan in the plan
Pakistanis collectively sent over 151 billion text messages during the year 2009.
Nokia has cited Pakistan to be producing the third highest SMS traffic in the world in 2010 and I'm guessing you are from USA oh well even if you are not Samsung will launch the S3 in Pakistan in June that means with the global launch

Try to be respectful to others even when you might not know anything about them :)

Yes real mature guys up vote a guy who offends someone and down vote the guy who by almost by all means was still not disrespectful to that person

oh when I said you must be from the USA and the S3 bit I was implying the fact S3 will come to the USA after june.
