There are three things I like about Nokia Asha 300 --
1. It's a Touch and Type phone; Flaunting both an alpha-numeric keypad and a resistive touchscreen.
2. It's one of the most affordable 3G-enabled phones out there.
3. It comes with our favorite game, Angry Birds, pre-installed.
Nokia Asha 300 gives users fast and easy 3G access to the internet and thousands of apps in the Nokia Store. This Series 40 handset also has a 5 megapixel camera for taking clear photos in well-lit conditions, which can then be easily organized and edited straight from the Nokia gallery before being uploaded to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Music lovers can enjoy the Nokia Asha 300's music player and built-in FM radio. Likewise, thanks to the phone's MicroSD card slot which supports up to 32GB, you can take all your favorite videos, music and multimedia apps wherever you go.
"Our latest smart feature phone, the Nokia Asha 300, is one of Nokia’s lowest cost 3G phones," said Dharmesh Goshalia, the new General Manager and Head of Sales of Nokia Philippines. "This again shows our commitment to bringing great experiences to people with different needs –from consumers to business users."
Nokia Asha 300 features the new Nokia Browser for Series 40, which promises to provide an advanced browsing experience that makes entertainment and information easy to enjoy and discover. Aside from delivering faster and more affordable internet access due to its ability to compress and reduce over-the-air data, the browser has been specifically developed to offer locally relevant content and features.
