if Nokia will continue to be like this then they're finished!! low end phones are their bread and butter now, so they need to give something very competitive on that market, and Symbian is really the best choice ( and also meltemi if it really exist) coz Android ( and even the upcoming firefox)will slowly and surely eat their bread and butter!!
This phone belongs to Asha 400 series between Asha 300 series and Lumia 500 series. :)
nokia have a way of impressing its customers.i know this will have all of asha 311 and more and as soon as its out, i will get one.

S40 or Asha Touch, on the other hand, stays a good distance from WP.
I can make out two different phones from those pictures. One has the dual-shot plastic, 5MP camera with flash, and capacitive back button, while the other has the single-layer plastic, unlabeled camera and physical back button. The dual-shot plastic is gorgeous and the new back key makes me hope that S40 touch got revamped again, this time with more power to compete with low-end droids.
Hope it isn't crippled with S40. Such a useless OS! Can't even delete unwanted mobile settings like on S60.
Fiq, 25 Feb 2013The UI on the promo pic looks like Symbian.i do wish that this will run on symbian instead of the shitty S40!!!
i mean symbian isnt a demanding OS for its hardware (see 808 pureview's CPU and RAM) it can run decently on a 10 year old single core(ARM11) with a mere 512 RAM, it can match some top-ier android with dual/quad core and 1/2GB RAM!!!
what's the point of S40? its really a shitty rip-off of the meego OS! not even a real smartphone OS!
so im begging nokia to continue symbian!! put symbian on low end instead of S40!! coz your ashas are now their bread and butter!! so if cheap android and some new comer firefox OS will be aggressive in low end as well, nokia will be finished!!!
come on nokia! listen to people who care about your status!!
WOw.! Nokia fanboys are so excited!
Just wait till we get the full info about this phone. Im sure we'll all get disappointed again.
Neat! Nokia are coming up with cool ideas! Hope they up the specs just a little and asha will be way to go
Good design for Asha mobile best than before
but, specification is important too
I Love this fucking design!
give this with WindowsBlue and camera tricks from Nokia808 merged with those from Lumia920 and i'll jump even if i have two years and a half Carrier lockdown monthly fee on!
Different from other Asha series smartphones. Simply attractive and beautiful design. Better features from it's family and easily affordable. Whats more. Nothing.. LOL
