Nokia Asha 205 is the first phone from the Finnish company with dedicated Facebook button

Nokia unveiled a new member of its Asha family of affordable feature phones – Asha 205. What makes this phone special is the fact that it’s the first Nokia device with a dedicated Facebook button, allowing folks to quickly fire-up the popular social network and keep up with their buddies while on the go.

And there’s more – the Nokia Asha 205 also comes with a new sharing technology called “Slam” using which it’s much easier to beam files from one phone to the other whether the other phone is “Slam-enabled” or not. Slam quickly detects the nearest Bluetooth device and offers that device the file; the other person can then accept and download the picture instantly, without any need to pair the two phones.

As for the pre-installed apps, aside from Facebook and other social networking/chat apps like Twitter and eBuddy, there’s also Nokia Nearby (even though the phone doesn’t have GPS), Nokia Life (or Nokia Life+), as well as EA’s gift pack of 40 free premium games.

The Nokia Asha 205 will be offered in cyan, magenta and orange, with stylish two-tone mixes from Q4 2012. Without any operator subsidies or local taxes, it will cost around $62. A dual-SIM version of the device will be available, as well.
