Mary McDowell came on stage and got busy right away announcing three new Nokia Asha phones - the Asha 202, Asha 203 and Asha 302. The Asha 302 is a QWERTY messenger, while the Asha 203 is identical to the Asha 202, but with an extra SIM slot.
The Nokia Asha 302 features extensive communication skills. It features Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp integration, but also - get this! - Microsoft Exchange email. That's a first for a Nokia feature phone.
The 302 runs on a 1GHz processor and has 14.4Mbps HSDPA which, McDowell pointed out, is faster than a lot of low-end Androids.
The Nokia Asha 302 is shipping now for €95 ($130).
The lower-end Ashas feature 2.4" touchscreens and come with the Nokia Browser. Both have 2MP cameras. There's also Bluetooth, microSD card slot for cards up to 32GB and FM radio.
The Asha 203 has a second SIM slot and will remember personalized settings for up to five SIM cards, so several people can easily share a single phone.
Those two come with a huge pack of EA games, no less than 40. You can download those off the Nokia Market for free during the first 60 days. That's equivalent to €75 of added value.
That's more than the price of the phones themselves, they'll go for about €60 ($80). Launch is set for the next few weeks.
