Full QWERTY Nokia Asha 210 arrives in color
The Nokia Asha 210 has just gone official and it is the QWERTY phone Nokia teased two days ago. Just as we thought, it is not a Windows Phone Lumia device, but instead is an affordable Asha phone standing out with colorful design, single and dual-SIM versions and a dedicated WhatsApp button.

The Asha 210 is clearly shooting for heavy texters, especially those who use WhatsApp as the service is integrated deep even in the contact book. It also has the Nokia Slam feature for sharing images and videos via Bluetooth without having to pair first.

"The Nokia Asha 210 really stands out giving super-social consumers new ways to express their personalities through design, colour and innovations like the world's first WhatsApp button," Nokia Mobile Phones executive VP Timo Toikkanen said. "It has been designed to allow people to easily update their social networks, stay in touch with friends and share user created content."

The device is also comes with Facebook and Twitter pre-loaded, as well as with the Nokia Express browser.

The Asha 210 features a 2.4-inch 240 x 320-pixels screen and runs on Series 40 Asha UI and comes with a 2-megapixel rear camera with a dedicated key. It has 64MB of internal storage that can be expanded to up to 32GB via a microSD card. The handset is powered by a 1200mAh battery that can last up to 46 days in the single-SIM phone and up to 24 days on the dual-SIM.

The Nokia Asha 210 will arrive in yellow, cyan, black, magenta, and white for an extremely affordable off-contract price of $72 and should hit stores in the second quarter of 2013.
