More low-cost Asha phones from Nokia. Out in Q4, the Asha 308 and 309 will both come in Sim-free at under $100, Nokia said today.
The two touchscreen handsets are pitched at emerging-market punters seeking mobile internet access and who might otherwise be tempted by a cheap Android smartphone. Nokia is lining up its Lumia series of Windows Phone handsets against the Google-running competition.
Both Ashas have a 3in, 400 x 240 display, Micro SD for storage and a 2MP camera on the back.
The 308 has space for two Sims, the 309 for one. They run Nokia's own OS -
Symbian Series 40, in other words. ®
