I can't understand why Nokia can't put multitasking feature in S40. My 2 year old SE Cedar(feature phone) can do multitasking very well. It can run more than 5 apps simultaneously without any lag.Just 1 tip for Nokia: enable S40 with multitasking and merge it with Qt for more apps. Although it might be possibe with Meltemi. But the trojan flop killed it. A Windows dog.
At least now, I didn't find any reason to put a 1Ghz processor in a feature phone without multitasking. Hope in future Nokia should utilize this hardware, by making a perfect S40. Although the new touch UI looks awesome. Just the software need little more feature.
when will it be available in the Philippines?!
As long as the cat catches mice, I don’t bother about its colour. As long as a phone performs its functions, I wouldn’t bother about its OS.
It should make calls, send messages, check mail, take decent photos and videos, do social networking, do reasonably fast and dependable internet, play music and radio, and have a good battery backup. All this are claimed to be done by this one. The UI is pleasant as well. So look no further, grab a piece when available.
At least I will.
When it will be in market.....,?
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2012Very low colors on screen is main concern & low ram. It should be dual sim.
low color screen means excellent battery life...what more do you need then???
It beats Windows phone with USB OTG support. It beats iOS with mp3 support. It beats Android in term of native WAP support. but it is just a S40. LOL.
It looks like NOKIA got paid to deliver the most
useless phones in 2011-2012 in order to get bankrupt!!
This phone is a joke!
~3.0 Screen for internet browsing?!
~No physical keyboard with the screen size 3.0?! (it's already hard to type on touch only 4.0 and 5.0 phones!)
~Text messaging is useless with such small screan and no physical keyboard!

Well, haters gonna hate. most 95% of those who commented here never use nokia anyway.
Want a smartphone? Then don't even bother to comment at this phone, saying it got no os, the os is old, no multi tasking, comparing it with samsung galaxy y or whatever. different people have different taste. different wants and needs.
If you don't like it, then don't flame it.
I think yes it supported video calling its a 3G phone.
Nokia,Please think about screen colors of Asha 311,It's like pulling us to old era. Increase price but don't offer degraded phone marring good experience.It could have been better if it had more RAM.
Why Nokia you are taking us to old age? By just offering 56k colors to adjust with your other handsets and keeping price low,you making customer to starve for good mobile experience. Slightly increase budget of phones but produce good experience giving phones.You already got too late in launching good phones,that's why samsung became No.1.
