AnonD-13154, 26 Oct 2011??? I'm sorry, didnt get what you meant. '' all my phones are dumb phones ''asha is realluy a hope fr nokia to regain its market which is now ruled by other companies specially Samsung giving a tough time along with a china sort of companies.
this phone looks very cool i wll dfnetly waiting fr launch of this phone very sleeky and styilsh.And very suitable fr a indian consumer qwerty keypad looks very gorgeous...............
GSMArena you almost gave me a heart attack. You wrote "Both devices will also have up to 32GB on-board storage" for the Asha 2001 and 200. You know where you went wrong right!
* "Asha" is a Hindi word which means "Hope"
I think Nokia has only 2 Ashaye (Hopes) now to regain the lost market shares which are
1. Windows Phones and
2. Nokia Asha series phones
that' s why they announced these at their big event and rightly they should hope because they have declared to support symbian os till 2016 and Mr. Elop seems to be not interested in Meego.
* By the way bigger manufacturers are using Hindi word:
Samsung used word "Guru" means "teacher"
Motorola used the word "Yuva" means "Young".
Moto yuva phones sold good.
And now Nokia uses "Asha".
Samsung guru series phones are the best selling series in india. I think it's nokia's reply to samsung for the low budget phones.
Asha hai (hope so) Nokia's gets success with these phones and windows phones.
* It's good to see Motorola is coming back with RAZR and I think it will sell well.
* Gsmarena please don't use the word "dumb phones" even though your intentions might not be to insult non smartphones but it shows arrogance not only toward's the non smart phones but also towards it's users. And use words according to dictionary for better communication.

Or if its not an eye problem, they will refer you to places reserved for people like you u know,
Clear your head.
I think everyone come to this forum understand the difference between dumb and smart phone. They argue just because they want to practise their English wkwkwk.....

Finally 3G VoIP in S40 phone, ASha 303. But why Asha 300 is lacking it ?
I repeat my comment, please pay attention:
GSMArena did not call these phones dumb. 'Dumbphones' is generally accepted as the name for non-smartphones today, and is not meant as an insult. 'Feature phones' can also be used, it has the same meaning as 'Dumbphone'.
It is also used in other parts of the IT world. 'Dumb Terminal' for example, is to describe a traditional computer which does not process data locally or on an internal CPU.
I find it ironic that it is those who are loudest in condemning the usage here, are the ones who did not do their homework, and did not bother to read first before insulting, hence, in my books, very dumb.
dumb meaning non smartphone. datz rather straight forward isn't it?
why gsmarena use a word dumb phones nokia? i never encounter gsmarena use this word to other phone company. how bout the build quality of SE, what word you use? scrap phones. please dont use that word. dumb is not for machine, is for people who created such a nonsense lines... please...
onion skin, 26 Oct 2011what i'm trying to say is that if you were a phone then you must be a smartphone with all the ... moreBut all my phones are dumb phones.
My cedar performs multitasking, vga playback, open-os, changeable camera, speaker drivers, unlimited java and heap size and even .srt subtitle with videos. So I consider it as the smartest of the dumb phones.
Besides my x2 can operate smoothly without any magic numbers in clockspeed. And these dumbest of dumb got no additional functionality than my x2.
Then whats so special in these?
This is 'nirasha' (dissapointment) and not 'asha' (hope or wish).
This asha series is like having a 5litre sports car engine, but limited to 50 bhp.
