SAM230396, 12 Jun 2013Hello NIKKANG, it is also expected that NOKIA ASHA 501 will realise in 90 countries including... moreHi SAM! :) Oh yeah? I can't wait for it. This phone is awesomazing! But hey, do you when? I mean, do you know exactly what week in June? Sorry, I ask a lot. =)))
I would like to have a better PDF app or support to read quite big file then it'll appeal to more people and more convenient.What you say mates?
friends.. This is the phone I am eagerly looking phone...
The reasons are:
1) of course the brand Nokia
2) the new Asha platform with nokia n9 interface
4)very important - the battery backup
5)near to smartphone experience
Eg. Fb, twitter, LinkedIn, mail, music, videos, wechat, whatsapp, line, gameloft even nokia here maps etc etc etc
You can expect ur smartphone to perform well especially battery... Here in nokia Asha 501 we can get 99% of smartphone experience with completely new interface and no lags in performance..
Look at android, even for 8k phone it lags a lot.. But here nokia Asha 501, just 5k..
I agree the screen resolution is low and display size is less then no 3g only 2g,no NFC support everything I agree.. But the major thing is no availability of 3g only..
Nokia express browser now uses cloud compression technology which compress the data upto 90% so that u can get utmost speed..
Finally u can get access for 40 games and airtel users can get unlimited access to Facebook for limited months..
What else u need

abhi, 12 Jun 2013ram is only 64 mb.what will speed of internet?please replyNOKIA ASHA 501 helps you surf the internet 'smarter' with an updated version of the Nokia Xpress Browser, which uses the cloud-compression technology to reduce data by up to 90%, making it both faster and cheaper to get online.
Now, you can understand that how fast is the internet surfing in Nokia Xpress Browser in NOKIA ASHA 501. And remember one thing that the speed of internet is depended on the sim which are you using and the network in that area.
Noble, 12 Jun 2013Yah,but we've to spend extra cost for change the back cover.Do we get headset with NOKIA ASHA 501 ?
I am asking this because NOKIA ASHA phones like 305, 308, 310 and 311 have free headset, though prices of NOKIA ASHA 305(Rs. 4400), 308(Rs. 5300) and 310(Rs. 5600) are less than NA 501(Rs. 5800).
Therefore, there is possibilities of getting headset with NA 501.
SAM230396, 12 Jun 2013Who wants all six covers and spend extra money for that. And by always changing the back cover... moreThey've made this easy to change cover,incase if anyone change mind after buying.Headphone model WH-208 all'll get red color,you get no choice for headphone color.
