Shame, I was going to buy this phone as a secondary mobile. But it's even more basic than I had hoped.
Maybe Nokia will get round to releasing a proper successor to the 6700 classic? I'd buy that in an instant.
In Asha300 Nokia has given 1GHZ Processor, Resistive touch, 5MP camera, USB OTG, 3.5G @ 80Euros. Fine. Surprising Nokia has not considered x3-02 plus capacitive screen + Better battery with Current x3-02 Price levels
This phone selling at $100 in my country, for that price this is "Gems" I don't agree that it doesn't fit today standard, someone out there might just need a simple & reliable phone this is where Nokia shine.
What's the point of having all sought of state of the art technology phone with bad call quality & less than a day battery life ? Android below $300 are absolute craps.
of course there is no multi tasking, cause there is nothing really to do woth this phone.
Just have to comment on the "elements borrowed from more popular platforms". Bit awkward choice of words considering there are about 1.5 billion S40 devices out there. S40 could very well be the most popular platform.
wtf, 23 Jan 20121Ghz processor , 128 ram , no multitasking!? my old low range lg has multitasking! there is 5533 n 5530 handsets which have best multitasking on planet with s60v5 os. Price is also same as asha.
hmm..."t-mobile move" has bigger capacitive screen, graph accelerator, all android stuff, all connectivity like wifi 3g gps bt ...FOR THE SAME PRICE, gj nokia
“Oops, I dropped my phone, is the floor OK?”
LOL at the reference to the Indestructible Nokia 3310 meme! :D
AnonD-9052, 24 Jan 2012who needs multitasking when this kind of mobiles are for old people or children??Or for those who find that they can get the simple tasks done faster on a featurephone.
One of the great things about S40 is, when I've got the menus set up right, I can access just about anything in a few clicks.
I'm not sure I like the idea of S40 with touch though..
Good stuff. If it had wi-fi it would be perfect. All that a man with a life really needs. I bet I could type on it faster than most people with those silly touch screens.

Would've been nice to have the accelerometer and capacitive screen in this one - seems a bit ridiculous having a 1GHz processor without them. Eh well, at this price range...
