Nokia used to be the number one and now can only produce low end phone. Common Nokia step up and fight against others
If you are looking for a cheap touch phone then Xperia Miro is £99 in the UK. Gsmarena did not factor in this price in their Miro review.
I work at cells shop, i try this phone before cuple a week ago... i really don't like it... its slow, laag and fat =] nope nope nope and price are too big too.. sry nokia..
Tried this in-store a couple of weeks ago and have to say, was put off immediately by the response of that screen. Sorry Nokia, the price is right for an entry level smartphone but the specifications are too basic for most consumers at this level.
The blaze of glory for phones like these is long gone. Few years ago, when Android was some bizarre exotic and Symbian phones were expensive luxury, feature touchscreen "dumb"phones had a really big market share, because for a reasonable price you get a cool gadget. But today with lots and lots of fully capable budget droids like HTC Explorer, SE Xperia Mini, Sony Tipo, etc the whole Asha line is... well, pathetic.

seems like these phone were error, and they get corrected with the 309 and 308.
the resistve screen on N900 is really good, but with the ones on those phones, it get difficult to chat with.

What are the criteria that meaninfully separate them from all acknowledged smartphone platforms? If you do the "math", there in fact is no such criteria. The definition of a smartphone has become almost completely arbitrary, so saying that the Ashas are not smartphones is actually based on their pedigree (Series 40) rather than any functionality or lack thereof that all so called "real" smartphones have but the Ashas don't.
JOhnny the king, 21 Oct 2012The best phone ever for the low budget, sure beat the galaxy y like hell~Are you kidding ? This is clearly the worst phone made by Nokia , especially when the competition is so intense , what with budget droids becoming increasingly affordable. Not to mention that they are truly smartphones and not "pretending-to-be-smartphones".
Nokia should sell 1Ghz phones with 512MB RAM and Symbian software for this price if it wants to be profitable at-least in feature-phone race. Not to mention VGA video recording at 30FPS and a 3.2MP autofocus camera.
Don't tell me its not possible. To make it possible , that will be called innovation. And that is what Nokia should do.
Nokia goes mad, lives in the past, my Sony mini had more power, specs and lower price almost one and half year ago
Nokia should put Symbian in this phone instead of S40.
Symbian will perform better since it's capable of performing multitasking.
The best phone ever for the low budget, sure beat the galaxy y like hell~
Worst phone in its price category.Android phones with a lot better specification can be bought in this price range
I would happily pay more just not to have that resistive touchscreen. If someone gifted me a resistive screen phone i would gift it to someone else.
"The Nokia Asha 306 has something that makes
the (supposedly dumb) S40 UI look much smarter
than the likes of iOS and Windows Phone (even
stock Android out of the box). That's right, we are
talking about a full-featured file browser."
