Nokia a anuntat, miercuri, lansarea celui mai nou telefon din seria Asha. Modelul 210 costa numai 72 de dolari (250 lei), iar la acest pret propune un profil ergonomic ce aminteste de HTC Cha-Cha, un ecran de 2,4 inch, o tastatura qwerty si posibilitatea de a face convorbiri de pe doua numere simultan.
Nokia Asha 210 are un ecran LCD cu rezolutie QVGA (320 x 240 pixels) si o tastatura ergonimica full QWERTY. La cum arata, telefonul pare ideal pentru cei care nu se descurca cu telefoanele touch-screen.
Telefonul vine cu conectivitate Wi-Fi/ GPRS/EDGE, microUSB si Bluetooth. Interesant este ca Nokia Asha 210 este primul telefon cu un buton dedicat pentru WhatsApp, care le da astfel posibilitatea utilizatorilor sa trimita mult mai usor mesaje in cunoscuta retea de socializare.
Avand in vedere ca avem de-a face cu un telefon ieftin, camera este una de numai 2 MP, iar capacitatea de stocare a telefonului este limitata la 64 MB. Bineinteles, cu un card microSD, se poate ajunge pana la 32 GB.
Varianta dual-SIM ofera, in plus fata de versiunea de baza, suport pentru Easy Swap, astfel ca veti putea comuta de pe o linie telefonica pe cealalta fara probleme.
Nokia Asha 210 va fi lansat in mai multe culori, la pretul de 72 de dolari. O prezentare detaliata a telefonului o puteti vedea in clipul video de mai jos.

Nokia introduces the Nokia Asha 210, the most social Asha yet
A fast and responsive QWERTY phone with the world’s first WhatsApp button
Espoo, Finland – Nokia today unveiled the latest device in its Asha family, designed to offer consumers more social experiences at an affordable price. The Nokia Asha 210, available in Single- or Easy Swap Dual-SIM variants, features a distinctly Nokia design and smart imaging that sets it apart from the crowd. It supports Wi-Fi to help people enjoy more of the Internet for less and is the world’s first phone to have a dedicated WhatsApp button.
Your social life at your fingertips
The Nokia Asha 210 has a QWERTY keyboard and a dedicated WhatsApp
button for fast access to instant messaging. To celebrate the Nokia and WhatsApp partnership, WhatsApp is offering their service for free on all Nokia Asha 210 devices with the WhatsApp button for their lifespan. Combined with Facebook, Twitter and support for popular email accounts such as Gmail, the Nokia Asha 210 is designed to ensure that people are never more than a few clicks away from their friends and family.
Capture and share great images every time
The Nokia Asha 210 comes with a 2MP camera that can be accessed through a dedicated hardkey even when the keypad is locked. The smart camera also offers a choice of image capture, editing and sharing options, including:
– Self-portrait – for perfectly centred self portraits, even without a front-facing camera. The built-in voice guides the user to ensure they are in the frame, before taking the shot.
– Fast editing of images directly from the camera app and easy sharing of images to social networks.
People can also share photos and other content quickly by using Nokia’s innovative Slam feature, which comes built-into the Nokia Asha 210. It works by enabling the transfer of content such as images or videos to another Bluetooth-enabled phone without the need to pair devices.
„The Nokia Asha 210 really stands out giving super-social consumers new ways to express their personalities through design, colour and innovations like the world’s first WhatsApp button,” explains Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia. „It has been designed to allow people to easily update their social networks, stay in touch with friends and share user created content.”
„We are focused on delivering the best WhatsApp experience to as many people as possible,” said Brian Acton, Co-Founder of WhatsApp Inc. „We are very excited about our partnership with Nokia Asha complementing our strategy of giving people around the world an easy experience when keeping in touch with their friends.”
The new device also takes full advantage of the Nokia Xpress Browser which uses Nokia’s cloud technology to reduce data consumption by up to 90 percent, helping people enjoy more affordable Internet access. The Nokia Asha 210 also features Nokia Nearby, a web app that lets people discover points of interest such as restaurants, shopping and ATM machines close to their location.
Other key features for Nokia Asha 210 include:
– Social phonebook integration with the ability to launch WhatsApp direct from contact cards in the Phonebook
– Preloaded YouTube launcher for direct video streaming
– Chat screen notifications that keep users up-to-date on new conversations
– Single-SIM and Dual-SIM models featuring Nokia’s exclusive EasySwap technology that enables consumers to change SIM cards without having to turn off the device
– WiFi On/Off control button
– Nokia’s renowned long battery life: up to 46 days with Single-SIM and up to 24 days with Dual-SIM
The Nokia Asha 210 is available in yellow, cyan, black, magenta, and white. The estimated retail price for the Nokia Asha 210 is around 72 USD and it is expected to start shipping in the second quarter of 2013.
