As a mobile developper J2Me/LWUIT w3c/HTML5 I have to say that I'm really impressed by the new AshaOS design.
It's looking like meego (does the fastlane thingy display my social updates?) and finally nokia realised that with 4 icons per row the screen seems less tiny (ie: Oh look the screen is so tight that it can only contain 3 icons...). For the one who complains about no toolkit available try the published SDK or LWUIT and more you will be amazed by pauseapp on call on S40 -> nothing to do
this phone has to good service to tellicomunicationn i trust nokia it will be provide to good sirvices
does this phone supports software like nokia s60? Does it supports watsapp?
Successor of this pls.

Naim, 14 May 2013When will nokia asha produce a symbian phone ?Nokia will never produce Symbian phone again. Ashas are one type of "the new Symbian" or in this case - "MeeGo".
gauresh, 14 May 2013its not a smartphone .its dont have multitasking.its only java phone.It has multitasking...
Finally! A phone for normal people! Long battery life, pocket friendly and nice design, pretty and clean UI, cheep and it still has a reasonable sized screen and reasonable camera. Wifi (should be enough, it is for most iPad owners) and 2G for email headlines, statusupdate or tweet, just enough to not miss really important stuff while on the go! Superb!!!

.naik, 12 May 2013is the Asha OS platform update is available for asha 311?....Dude even i'm praying to god...but i don't think its possible...cuz current platform is made based on 4:3 accept ration n 240x320 res....i dont know display colours matter or not....all other specs seems okay..and mainly nokia won't be stupid enough to release an update very soon even if it is possible....upcoming models sale may be affected...so dont expect..an update soon...
No Android is okay (sometimes good), but no 3G means RUBBISH!
Also, T9 keyboard is a MUST to develop the Asha!
