Kolkata, Feb 12 (IBNS) Nokia, a global leader in mobile communications, on Tuesday announced the launch of Nokia Asha 310, a new Dual SIM smartphone with Wi-Fi support.
The combination of Dual SIM plus Wi-Fi in the same device, a first for Nokia smartphones, gives consumers the best of both worlds by offering the flexibility to enjoy more mobile experiences while managing their costs.
The Nokia Asha 310 also comes packed with great apps and games that are the hallmark of the Nokia Asha range.
With Nokia's built-in Easy Swap Dual SIM technology, consumers can use the external slot on the Nokia Asha 310 to insert a secondary SIM card, while keeping their principal SIM card in place behind the battery.
The addition of Wi-Fi in the Nokia Asha 310 gives users a fast and easy way to enjoy more online, including streaming videos from YouTube or downloading the 40 free EA Games from Nokia Store.
"The Nokia Asha 310 further strengthens Nokia's portfolio of Asha devices. Nokia's Asha range now comprises 15 models which succeed in bringing smartphone features like Wi-Fi, video streaming, social, fast mobile browsing, apps and games at competitive price points," said Neil Shah, senior analyst, Strategy Analytics.
"The Nokia Asha 310 is the first-ever Nokia smartphone to offer both Easy Swap Dual SIM and Wi-Fi in the same device. It gives consumers the best of both worlds, allowing them to separate work and play, or speak with friends on other mobile networks more affordably," said Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia.
"The addition of Wi-Fi support gives users the freedom to enjoy much more of the Internet compared to competitive devices at this price point."
The newest addition to the Asha Touch family of smartphones, the Nokia Asha 310 features a 3" scratch-proof, capacitive touchscreen that complements the sophisticated design. It features a 2 megapixel camera and comes with a 4GB* memory card included, with support for a further 32GB of external memory.
