BARCELONA, Spain--You can't say that Nokia didn't come to Mobile World Congress with something for everyone. Even before it introduced the Windows Phone 7-powered Lumia 610 and the 808 PureView super camera phone, the company unveiled its new Asha series. Designed for budget-minded consumers and emerging markets, the three Asha series handsets, may look simple, but they offer a few surprises.
On the outside, the 202 has a simple candy bar design that looks like it was plucked from the '90s. Beneath the 2.4-inch display are the calling controls and an alphanumeric keypad. The display is a touch screen, though it felt the slightest bit clunky.
