Nokia had announced the Asha 210 smartphone back in April and till now there is no sight of that device. The Mobile Indian did report about Nokia Asha 210 getting listed for Rs 3,999 last month but the device is still unavailable. Now a popular online retailer – Flipkart has listed the Nokia Asha 210 smartphone for Rs 4,499.
The Nokia Asha 210 arrives with a 2.4-inch LCD display with native 320×240 pixel resolution. It features a Qwerty keyboard with a dedicated button for WhatsApp. The app has also been integrated with the Phonebook inside the phone to launch WhatsApp directly from there. However, the image of the device listed at Flipkart shows dedicated Facebook button. There is a large spacebar key which also acts as the button to turn the WiFi – on or off.
Nokia Asha 210 has 32 MB RAM and has a memory card slot to accommodate up to 32 GB micro SD card. At the rear is a 2 megapixel camera but without a flash. There is a dedicated camera button at the side. Appearing 11.8 mm thick, the Nokia Asha 210 runs the Asha OS and the dual-SIM model of the same will feature EasySwap technology – it enables swapping SIMs without turning off the device.
The new price did surprise us as during launch it was quoted as Rs 3,900. But now since the value of Indian Rupee has fallen against the Dollar, the Indian price of the same device is expected to be around Rs 4,499.
The price is still good for the Asha 210 packs 1200 mAh battery that promises 46 days standby time for single SIM model and 24 days talk time for dual-SIM model.
