Your comment reminds me of my friend. Years ago, he loved to buy sony products. You know why? Because he thought they were reliable and durable. In fact, they earned their reputations because of that. In other words, unless otherwise he would not buy it, because among other competitive products, they are rather expensive!
He still loves sony products? May be. But, now he loves to buy samsong products. You know why? Because he thinks they are reliable, durable and most of all they are quite cheaper than those of sony.
May be, it's different.
But still, I must say this. "if nokia's confident is based on the success in the development countries or even euro, they are worng!" You know why? Becase of this formula.
Korean Is Superior = Samsong!
I hope I am wrong, because I hate android.
Although this baby phone is not a smartphone, it sucks a battery like a milk. A day? No way! Some people said, three times a day. Just like a meal. Do you think it is reliable!?
i dont think so....its a good value for money phone.
can youtube video be download from this phone ?
going to buy it , coz it's features are just perfect for regular guy like me !
The phone has got various functions for users bt if u r using the device for bussiness puyrposes then it would nt be a good option for u

Everyone wants (or desires) the Asha 302 to be different, especially because it is "competing" with other more popular phones. Reason? At this point in time the "popular phone" seems to be revolving around the following formula:
Touchscreen + Android = Smartphone
Now, my contention is that one could still have a simple, durable and reliable phone (like the Nokia C3 or Asha 302) WITHOUT the need for a touchscreen or Android OS for that matter. Heck, I would say, Nokia should continue with its KISS formula:
Keep + It + Simple = Success
Nokia has been renowned for its simple, durable phones in countries like India (much in the same way that Toyota earned its early reputation the world over for cheaper yet reliable cars).
Why, for instance, did the Nokia C3-00 win Best Feature Phone or Entry Level Phone at the GSMA Awards 2012 in Barcelona, when there were many competitive "touchscreen + android" smartphones within a similar budget? Clearly, the jury appreciated the C3 as a simple, durable and effective phone.
When I buy a phone, I would prefer any which day a reliable and durable phone with 15-20 essential features, rather than a delicate touchscreen phone with hundreds of features, but which drains the battery because of a power hungry OS.
Not to say that Android touchscreen phones are not great (I may even end up buying one in the future), but it is good to know that Nokia still believes in making the type of budget phones that earned its reputation: Simple and reliable. And the award winning Nokia C3 is a testimony to this reputation.
guy's, buying this phone is waste of money coz this phone does not have OS... It's price in India is around 6000inr.... Instead of this phone you can buy galaxy pocket or galaxy y... Both are touch screen phones with android OS and of same price AND other features are almost same....

Then, I realize that, hey!, may be, I am asking too much for "the phone company" just same as some people are asking too much for the budget phone like this one.
Then, I realize that, a company like Apple is not exactly the phone company like Nokia is. Apple is more like, "they are making the phones, but just same as their computers".
If CEO's confident is based on the legacy in the development countries, I shall say, hey!, I am not going to buy your prodcuts anymore until you give us something new!
But, once again, that's only me. If nokia lost one consumer today out of billions, they are not going to care anyway. That's exactly the international phone company is.
Thanks, Nokia. I hope we see you again! I promise I do take care of your baby phones like this one. Hahahahaha.
this feature phone is ok...
but Nokia can release successful qwerty smartphone E5 model with trackpad and 800 processor with name Asha 401 and dual sim version with Asha 402 for different markets without much change in design and even weight ... this smartphone would become instantaneous success when priced at same Rs. 8000 - 9000/- at this may 2012...

But, let's face the facts. I agree, this phone does offer the essential feature as the budget phone. I agree, no one expect a sport feture for a microwave machines.
But, I DO expect something new on this phone or even a microwave machines, unless they are $20 made-in-china products And I do believe, so as a crtics of nokia's asha 302.
(my friend said, his phone was quite new for him as it can offer him a basic features like a call and a text messaging despite of the fact that it costs only $20!)
If you already have C3, you probably notice, there is nothing very new except old fashioned business style like, changing CPU.
Perhaps you would say, or even I myself said before, "get a real! It is too much to ask for the budget phone like this one" But, I still admit as some people complain about this phone, there is still something missing on this very phone.
If nokia's CEO or even blackberry's CEO think, changing the OS would do the jobs for them just because they still have a lead on the development countries. I must say, they are wrong. And never ever beat the companies like apple or even samsong again. A OS shall be the new because it offers us something new! Not a OS itself.
That's what I am worried about as I've seen what nokia's doing for their own baby phones like this one right now. May be, I am the only one saying that. Thanks.
