I read before (on a comment) that "it is impossible to download apps using the WiFi", i.e., you can only install apps using the 2G connection.
Is this true?
(This seems a bit weird/fishy... nevertheless, I would like to be sure about this point.)
just had a demo of 501 yesterday at a mobile store. ....quite a
but the red version is too bright while black is very common so a bit confused to decide. ...but the question is does WHATSAPP is supported on the phone or not....that's my biggest deciding factor about this phone. . so if anybody knows then please comment here.
Those nokia Asha phones in the future must be upgraded a little bit more , they must have been equiped with a better camera and a front camera + 3g network +more power with a more powerfull RAM and CPU not very powerful but enough for apps..
Kiran, 08 Jul 2013After a long search in the market and online i couldnt find CYAN.i had to go with black as RED... moreCongratulations and welcome to the Nokia Asha 501 Club bro and I am happy to know that you are enjoying the phone.
Even I wanted cyan or green color but both are not yet available in the market so all I was left with was black, red and yellow.
Black and red are common so I went in with yellow and you won`t believe it is really a head turner. Almost 9 out of 10 people who saw me using the phone asked me what is this phone....ha ha ha. IMO yellow looks a bit funky.
Anyways, nokia will be launching the other color back covers for this as well. Then I will buy it. Although I found some available on ebay as well selling for 499 rs.
After a long search in the market and online i couldnt find CYAN.i had to go with black as RED looks more pinkish and girlish.now talking about the phone,this is just a basic phone with some necessary apps like FB,Twitter and few more.Dont expect too much from this phone.this phone cannot replace any andriod or windows phone.since the ui is simple and phone is smooth,dont treat this as smart phone.its only a feature phone.i was actually looking for such fone and thanks nokia for such cute phone.have to mention about its weight.absolutely light.u wont know even if some one picks ur pocket.please do ask me any thing about this phone.
RUFY, 08 Jul 2013Hello friends, I'm expecting my Nokia Asha 501 to be deliverd today by Flipkart....truly excited..Hey Congrats, just let me know if whatsapp working in this phone or not?
MobilePowerUser, 08 Jul 2013Nokia made the right decision by going with Windows Phone. WP8 has the best user experience on... moreNOKIA'S market share has dipped from 70% to 20% in the international arena. what else proof do you need to believe that nokia has made some disastrous decisions.
moreover, There are reports that Stephen Elope, CEO, nokia will be ousted from the post of CEO if sales of nokia does not improve in 3rd quarter and nokia is considering to produce ANDROID phones from next year to survive n regain its market share.
Had this decision been taken in the initial stage, Nokia would still have been dominant mobile maker.
NOKIA will extinct if does not come out with some major changes in its policies n products !!
except design and battery backup this phone has nothing good to offer.
it can be a good secondary phone/backup phone, it can never replace a smartphone. Dont expect much from it. It is just a feature phone with new look.
i got it, used for 4 days, was not impressed with features n performance so exchanged it with LG OPTIMUS L4 II DUAL by adding little more money.
There are some good smartphones available in the market if u can add 2000 bucks more in your budget like LG OPTIMUS L3 II DUAL & HUAWEI ASCEND Y300.
