It's cute, comes in vibrant and youthful colors, has Easy Swap Dual SIM Dual Standby support, flaunts a familiar and easy-to-navigate user interface, has standby time of up to a whopping 25 days, and features a dedicated Facebook button!

But the best part: Nokia Asha 205 only costs Php 2,690!

If you like texting and updating your FB status, you'll fall in love with this phone's tactile full QWERTY keyboard and Facebook button, which allows you to quickly post updates to your Timeline and check out your friends' messages on the news feed.

And to top all of that, Nokia Asha 205 - hitting store shelves in the Philippines today - has a new and innovative Nokia feature called 'Slam' that lets users send content to other Bluetooth-enabled devices without having to go through the process of pairing. This is particularly useful for sending content like images, videos, and contacts to another smartphone.

Given its ultra-low Php 2,690 price tag and all the cool stuff Nokia Asha 205 already has, it's truly hard to ask for more from this handset. Clearly, it's just another amazing release from the brand we've all grown to love through the years -- so don't forget to check it out!

I think this handset is totally ideal for young and entry level users as well as for those who already own a full-fledged full-touchscreen smartphone and are looking for a secondary handset for staying connected on more than one network and for quick texting using a physical full QWERTY keyboard.
