these phones should be using Symbian instead of S40, S30, S20, S10, or whatever they call it.
i dispise Nokia for killing Symbian.
smithx, 02 Jul 2013In your dreamTheyre right and youre wrong. It does all those things and there are many apps out there. I have one. Do you, troll?
Its a surprise this company is still in business , this is last decade junk . Who will buy this ??
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2013it's worse than last years vodafone smart 2,it has no apps and costs the same,it's trash specs... moreYes, it does have apps, it does multi-task and the Asha os doesn't need multi-core processors or a huge amount of memory to run.
If Asha was on a Samsung S4 or Apple iphone it would run circles around both Android and ios.
Doubt it? Do you think that either Android or ios stripped to the bone would even run on this phone? No way.
Nokia asha 501 is multitasking? Can i open 2 or more apps on this at the same time? Plz tell me....
hi, can anyone confirm if i can use asha 501 with nokia suite? i do all my messaging via pc, i have an old nokia phone (6300) and it works seamlessly with pc suite, i hope this one does too.
thanks a lot!
it's worse than last years vodafone smart 2,it has no apps and costs the same,it's trash specs follow their meaningless european refinement
lolza, 28 Jun 2013fast ? this peice of junk asha is fast ? as for cheap off contract : vodafone smart 3 is 90-10... moreYou have no idea what you're talking about. None of the phones you mentioned were fast. This phone with 64mb runs circles around them. But then Nokia was always good with getting the most performance from the hardware. Something Android and WP could learn from.
lolza, 28 Jun 2013fast ? this peice of junk asha is fast ? as for cheap off contract : vodafone smart 3 is 90-10... moreYou guys are clueless. Have you tried the phone yet? I have and it runs circles around your 2011 gingerbread phone. Period. Tried 2 Of the Orange gingerbread phones in this price range. Like has been said, they lag and even picking up a phone call was slow on those phones.
Alcatel!?!, get real. Rebranded Chinese phones with gingerbread that were worse than the Orange phones.
I hope nokia willing to release an asha with at least 3,5" screen. The OS looks refreshingly new (for those who never own an N9), and fastlane is a nice idea for a touch OS.
Browsing on a 3" screen must be horrible since i had an htc explorer bfore with its 3,2" and browsing is pain in the @ss there
I regret buying this phone. It's having a difficulty connecting to the web however stable the network is.
this phone is not about killer looks its about sober looks....teenagers will pickup a handful of this device also college students....within a month its price will be reduced bcoz samsung has got its galaxy star at a price below 5k rupees....ill buy one if web browsing and music experience are good
Horrid little phone! Looks almost like galaxy y that fell into a bowl of custard!
comeon guyz be specific once for all. its just a budget phone to do day to day normal tasks.
what more do u expect in 90 bucks??? good camera?? screen??
its just good n cute for its price. and the interface looks pretty good enough..!!
dont compare it with other wp and android smartphones...its just awesome for its kind..!!
and about apps, Nokia isnt that stupid to launch a phone without modern apps like whatsapp, hike, etc etc..!!
so guyz plz be specific and appreciate Nokia's work..!!
guys please, this is a Java phone, with .jar size limit up to 5MB.
so please don't compare with low-end Android phones that can install app up to 50MB size, even if those are in the same price range.
just look at here: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Devices/Device_specifications/Asha_501/
you can see yourself what Java API asha 501 support there.
it support mobile 3D graphics (.m3g), but in simplest form, so don't expect sophisticated 3D like in android or wp platform.
