First Look: Nokia announces bright and budget-friendly Asha 210

1:24 /

Though it's not coming to the U.S., the Nokia Asha 210 is equipped with a 2-megapixel camera, a 2.4-inch screen, and comes in several bright colors. It will launch in Q2 in Europe, Latin America, and parts of Asia.

-Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET, and today, we're gonna take a quick look at the Nokia Asha 210. This 2.4-inch handset is a feature phone with 2G and Wi-Fi capabilities. It runs on a 1.11 ampere-hour that gives you a reported talk-time of about 12 hours. On the back, there's a 2-megapixel camera that's capable of 4X zoom and you could remove the backplate here to access the microSD card slot that's expandable up to 32GB. It comes in five colors including yellow, cyan, and magenta, and as you can see, it has a four-row QWERTY keyboard. Now, Nokia has partnered with several companies when it comes to the Asha 210. One of which is WhatsApp, the mobile messaging application. Here on the left, you could see a dedicated button to launch WhatsApp. Different countries will get different launch keys. WhatsApp will be featured in India, Africa, and parts of Asia and the Middle East. China will get Weibo, another mobile messaging app, and Europe and Latin America will have a Facebook hard key. Additional features include 64MB of internal memory, bluetooth, and both dual and single SIM capabilities. Now, unfortunately, the Asha 210 won't come to the US, but as I previously mentioned, it will launch in other countries in Q10 for about 72 US dollars. Again, I'm Lynn and this has been the Asha 210 from Nokia.
