Press shot of mystery dual SIM Nokia device could be the Nokia Asha 504

Press shot of mystery dual SIM Nokia device could be the Nokia Asha 504
A leaked press shot, tweeted out by evleaks, reveals that a new dual SIM Nokia handset is on the way. "What is this thing?," tweets evleaks, and it does appear to be a Nokia Asha model, perhaps the 504. The top bezel is a little different than previous Asha 5xx handsets, and the screen, estimated to be 3.2 inches to 3.5 inches, reveals that Bing is the default search engine on the device.

Besides the top bezel, the design of the home button and the buttons on the side are different. And no, this does not appear to be the Nokia Normandy at all. As soon as we have any idea what we are dealing with here, we'll let you know. In the meantime, feel free to speculate and leave your thoughts in the box below!

Same, lumias and lumias. Nothing dramatic. Plus NOKIA is staying as NOKIA, its a huge brand which is recognised as a good mobile phone manufacturer. MS isnt famous for that so I am sure they will keep the name and pop out the lumias. Like Lenovo is planing to keep motorola branding etc.

I'm guessing 920 successor. 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 and so on. Air gestures are rumoured, but GS4 had them, and they worked, but as we see, nobody really needed them.

I'd probably get a Lumia 3 years from now, when they have more apps to offer.

Flipboard - announced, coming soon YouTube - Metrotube and a plethora of other options do the job better than the official apps on Android and iOS. Photoshop and Pixlromatic - Nokia Creative Studio is better (personal opinion). Not really a must have app for most. Press, Tasker, PowerAMP & Sleep as Android - never really heard of them before. You probably bought them up to troll. Pocket - Pouch is much better looking and fully featured client. Swiftkey - not required since the stock WP keyboard is one of the best around, something that cannot be said for Android. Real Racing 3 - not available in the store, but Asphalt 8 is much better (personal opinion). Anything else SleepingOz? :]

Its a done deal. Read some news. Plus it would have been an issue only if it was being a threat to national security which it isnt.

No, be sure.

IMO, MS needs to formulate a tuned down version of WP8 and load all Asha devices with it.. Those devices would be able to run a lot of apps in the store.. This would increase WP market share considerably..

WP8 is tuned down by nature, it runs on a single core and 512mb ram which most of new low end phones have now days. The only issue is some games or apps require in rare cases 1gb of ram.

No, they could give Asha devices a version with features left out like Kids corner, and Local scout.. These are smartphone features, and some require more advanced services.. It's not all about the hardware...

whats the point...ashas have a good OS...it encourages other OSes to thrive and besides Nokia shouldn't bow down the Microsoft at every occasion!

MS will be making Asha devices from now on.. They are a software company.. They should have their software and services on their products.. This is not unheard of..

Asha is good os. I guess nobody want wp in asha devices, because Asha have more features than wp. And Asha is easy to use than wp and have better ui.

I disagree.

I'm with Rodney. Windows Phone has more features than Series 40, which is still Java-based. Yeah, Nokia tried to paint Asha's as smartphones, but they just aren't.

You can do a lot more with the NT kernel than you you can with Asha's foundation.. It just makes complete sense.. .............. Some of these guys need to set their emotions, and hatred, aside and admit what makes sense...

WP Modern UI is the best looking UI, this asha UI looks like an ugly version of WP modern UI, also WP is often cited for it's simplicity, I suggest you actually use a WP before making such assumptions, Lumia 920 owner here.

Tell me one thing that an Asha does better than a Lumia, barring battery life.

seems like asha os but improved one

Given Nokia's pricing on their Asha line, I don't see any point of buying one. You could get a decent Android phone for what they're asking for.

Because a lot of times smartphones require a data plan.. And in emerging markets this isn't always available... It's gonna be a long time before feature phones are completely gone... A long time..
