Nokia announced a new member of its Asha family of affordable phone – Asha 310. What makes this device unique is the fact that it’s the company’s first phone that offers both Dual-SIM and Wi-Fi together. To make for an even better proposition, one of the SIM cards supports hot-swapping, meaning you’ll be able to insert a new card without turning off the phone. Plus, with the included SIM manager, you can assign unique profiles for up to five SIM cards and define which SIM card will be used for calling, texting or for using Internet data.
In addition, the Nokia Asha 310 also comes with a 3-inch WQVGA screen, Bluetooth 3.0, 2-megapixel camera, EDGE data (plus Wi-Fi), microSD memory card slot (with 2 or 4 GB card coming inside the box), and the battery that will keep the phone running for up to 17 hours in talk or 25 days in standby mode.
When it comes to pre-loaded software, there’s a web browser, email client, social networking apps (Facebook, Twitter and eBuddy), plus many other apps you can download from the Nokia Store, including 40 EA games which are offered for free.
The Nokia Asha 310 will be available later this quarter in black, white and gold in Asia, India, the Middle East, Africa and Brazil. Without local taxes or any operator subsidies, it will cost around $102.
