Nokia announced Asha 501

Nokia today officially unveiled their new Asha series - Asha 501. The design is inspired by Lumia and picked red as signature colour.

Asha 501 sports a 3" QVGA capacity touchscreen at 133 ppi pixel density, it also support 2 fingers multitouch. The phone also has a 3.2 MP camera at the back and it is fixed focus. The back is removable to access the microSIM, the pre-installed 4GB microSD card (up to 32GB supported) and the battery.

The new Asha 501 features two home screens - one is Fastlane, the other one is the app drawer. Fastlane promises to show your present and your past. Present includes currently running apps (yes, multitasking, hell froze over), while Past shows messages and other notifications you’ve received.

The Nokia Asha 501 focuses on 2G connectivity as large parts of emerging markets still rely on the slow mobile Internet. There are two apps to help with that - the Xpress browser compresses traffic and Xpress Now that recommends content based location, preferences and trending topics. Also, a partnership with Facebook and Airtel ensures people can access the social network for free, even without a data plan (this will be for a limited time only).

The new Nokia Asha OS will be a very social platform with Facebook, Foursquare, Linkedin, Twitter, Youtube and more available out of box. It has 1,200 mAh battery and available for dual-SIM too.



Nokia asha 501 looks nice and features also good, Asha 501 packs 3-inch TFT LCD touchscreen display supporting native resolution of 320x240 pixels. But it's not a 3G phone.


Hi, as it is just an entry-level phone, and it Nokia just target for low price markets, so some features will not available in Asha 501.
