Second look at image on Nokia site suggests a QWERTY equipped Asha model will be announced on Wednesday

0. phoneArena 22 Apr 2013, 08:33 posted on

After looking more closely at an image on Nokia's own site that we showed you this morning, it would seem to indicate that the Finnish based handset manufacturer is going to be taking the wraps off of a QWERTY equipped phone; Nokia is making an announcement at 7am GMT on Wednesday morning which seem to indicate that whatever device is being unveiled, it will be for Europe and Asia...

Maybe.........but a Lumia with QWERTY keyboard doesn't match at all, in my opinion. :)

Ashas' already have QWERTY keyboards :

That said... the typeset on the keys of the 205 look like the pictures.

So sure its an improved Asha 205.

REALLY REALLY wish it comes as a WP though..

Of course I know the Ashas already have QWERTY keyboards!

Can't you see the 'BINGO' word? It means that I'm right, Nokia is making a new QWERTY equipped Nokia Asha!

That arrow is very "Windows Phone-like", could it be a tablet?

OK if Nokia is abandoning Symbian, but they are still making the Asha platform.. what is Asha running on..? If not WP ?

Ashas are feature phones, not smartphones. They run Nokia's Series 40 software.

If it weren't for SwiftKey, this might make me switch if it is a landscape slider.
