Rahul, 10 May 2013All nokia asha platform are very very and very bad ....display colour only upto 256k ...error error Noo! The previous Ashas run on Series 40 OS. But this new Asha 501 runs on a new OS, called Asha software platform. It's awesome, and a big improvement over S40.
Great battery life and capacitive touch! I worth for $$
But physical size could be smaller for 240 x 320 pixels display.
for example 80 x 60 a nice mini phone I would by for sure.
[deleted post]Just Java apps, but this time it is smarter. Nokia released an SDK for the new Asha.
all nokia asha handsets are bad to use ,how the people getting subsidys to use govt services like this these handsets are also launched in india to clean the tears of public only but these handsets not fullfill the dreams of public ..........
It is approximately priced INR 5400 in India. For this price you will get an android phone from top brands. Then why go for this crappy phone and with a crappy OS.
This phone's os is different from nokia's other asha phones. I love it. Will be a high selling.
I wonder Nokia has overcome the problem of wiered popups when both SIM Data and WiFi are active as it was in Asha 311 S40 platform.
If so, then good otherwise Nokia software programmers still need to test the smart functions of their phones properly.
Second problem with nokia was the earpiece of the phone catches dust very soon and blows out in less than 6 months of usage.. require replacement
I wonder if they are taking care of their basic hardware other than battery and case
