I Wil buy this piece if it costs around 6000rs.. 1 thing s40 never offered is multitasking. A must thing an user expects in his mobile.
Nokia never tried to make s40 rich in features. They jst moved wid changes not added anything extra to make it rich..
Next major things i expect from asha phones (not suddenly) r gps, tv out, nfc, bt 3, multitasking, even higher resolution screen, better camera experience & features, browser wid flash, more codec support.
Sure starters wil hav a smartphone experience in low end.. And competition for boring galaxy y like droids..
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2012yes this is not a smart phone. it has no OS.Damn is there anything digital without OS. Even your wrest watch has an OS. It has OS and is S40 series.
Nokia developer site says it has 16 bit display that means its 65k color display not 56k. Gsmarena correct the spec.
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2012All those people...who are saying that there are better androids in this price........ I wa... moreDude the point is Nokia is getting killed because of this. S40 on "A 1GHZ processor?" That's like putting the hulk on steroids and asking him to carry your stuff toy! No offense to nokia and you
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2012is this 56K colour only why?56K colour nice or no nicestandard only, if better take lumia 610 bcs display 1600k colour

You are chatting in Facebook and needs a phone no stored in the phone book.. you have to exit the chatting application and then only you can open some other thing. Also it is a OLD (Historic actually) OS. No application other than Java runs in it. Even I could not find a office file viewer for my S40 phone. Internal memory also is very less. It is 3 GB in Galaxy Pocket now a days. No multitasking means even a animation is not smooth, all complex application needs multiple threads to run. Well if you just call, sms listened to music and occasionally do some facebook then it is ok. Otherwise S40 is useless. I don't know why nokia is using this. They could atleast use S60 instead which is a multitasking OS.
anna, 11 Jun 2012can we read pdf files or some other data files on it..?I don't think it has any document viewer. S40 don't have.
Anonymous wt r u views about wave-y v/s galaxy-y? Hope u will not avoid answering it by saying that google it, or by not approving my post. "Just Google It" is d reply of fools only who dont know nothing.
I thought the latest S40 phones offered some sort of multitasking. Can anybody confirm?
there seems to be lot of guys commenting on the specs of this phone and even comparing the lagging of samsung mid tier phones because of multi tasking......
but no one has commented on the build quality....i agree that nokia 311 has got capacitive touch screen, gorilla glass.....but the build quality is very very poor...especially the glossy back cover....come on nokia you atleast put a matte finish cover....or metallic like nokia asha 303 and nokia 302 not like nokia asha 200
[deleted post]hey u r wrong............samsung galaxy is agood multi tasking phone, running on android 2.3.5 and it can upgradeable.........but nokia it is running on a old os named s40 , instead of having 1ghz processer it is hanging always..........and more over it is not a smart phone .........when u r paying rs 6400 for nokia ...u r not getting that kind of facelity.....but when u pay this to samsung u r getting a ocean of application......so from that we r concluding that nokia cheated consumer......and u r wrong.
[deleted post]But why,because of non-multitasking???It's better not to multitask than multitasking w/ phone that is perfectly lagging like SGY.
About apps and games,Java is okay since Java is open source and many App Store are providing games for java like umnet,getjar etc. for free.
