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.

All their current low end phones look good. Some even better than the high end ones.

Looks good. I think Nokia should also come up with cheap Windows 7.8 based phones priced below the Lumia 520.

That does sound like a good idea but you don't want Nokia to have their Windows Phone/Lumia brand intervening with the Asha line up, that could cause a decrease in sales in the Asha lineup. But hey? Isn't the Lumia 520 pretty affordable anyway?

I think nokia have to do something to fill the gap between lumias and Ashas, I suggest a new series that have multitasking and led flash to the camera

Hmmm, quite. Even through all of Nokia's troubles and the "takeover" of high-end markets/phones it's amazing Nokia have kept to their roots.

Stupid Nokia. Why would someone in the world of smartphones will like DUMBPHONES? Nokia should more concentrate on smartphone market, launch a successor of Lumia 920 with 1080P, Quad Core and capture the smartphone market, that it once owned

I guess it's doesn't have wifi. It would be a good competitor to a low end blackberry if it did.

Ooops, I just checked the Nokia site, It does have wifi. I might get one as a back up phone, especially at that price.

I was disappointed when it wasn't a landscape keyboard slider like the Nokia N97 and E7.
