Nokia Launches The Asha 305 And Asha 311 Touchscreen Phones In India

Back in July, Nokia announced two new budget smartphones in its popular Asha family. The Nokia Asha 305 features a 3 inch touchscreen display along with the Easy Swap dual SIM technology. On the other hand, Nokia Asha 311 is the company’s cheapest touchscreen phone with 1 GHz processor. Both the handsets run on the Symbian S40 Operating System. These devices are pre-loaded with 15 levels of Angry Birds as well as the Nokia Browser 2.0, which uses Nokia’s cloud technology to reduce data consumption by up to 90%.

Mr. Viral Oza, Director Marketing, Nokia India, said,
“The Nokia Asha family has received tremendous consumer response. With a variety of form factors across price points and innovations such as Nokia Browser, Nokia Maps and DRM free Nokia Music, Nokia Asha family has triggered data consumption habits in first time data users. With the launch of Nokia Asha Touch range, we are strengthening our range of ‘mobile internet’ devices that offer these exciting experiences to the consumers.”
