Designed for young consumers who are always on the go yet ever eager to stay connected, the cute Nokia Asha 305 is a truly entertaining device that delivers great browsing experience, quick access to social networking sites, and fun free games. Paired with fast mobile data connection, the handset allows the user to be a true road warrior who's always in tune with what's happening online and in touch with friends and loved ones via his or her social media accounts.

Thanks to its new Asha Touch swipe-friendly user interface and the Nokia Browser 2.0 - which uses cloud technology to reduce data usage by up to 90% and in effect, makes web pages load faster, lowers mobile data charges, and improves the handset's battery life - Nokia Asha 305 is truly capable of providing a smartphone-like experience on its vibrant 3-inch touchscreen display.

But as if all that is not enough, Nokia even gave the phone an extra-feature that users who subscribe to more than one network provider will surely find attractive.

Having Dual SIM Dual Standby functionality, Nokia Asha 305 features the company's very own Easy Swap technology which allows SIM cards to be - well - swapped without having to turn off the phone and open its back cover. If you remember, Nokia C2-00 from 2011 is the first phone to have this feature and we even posted a video on Youtube showing Miss Nikka Abes of Nokia Philippines giving a short demo on how to use the Easy Swap port.

But here's the coolest part (for avid mobile gamers, at least), on top of all that, Nokia Asha 305 comes with an exclusive, free EA (Electronic Arts) Games Package, which includes 40 of its best-selling titles like Need for Speed, The Sims, Tetris, Bejeweled, and Fifa 2012! And should you want more games and apps like Guitar Hero, Burn the Rope, WhatsApp, and Foursquare - among many others, you can always visit the Nokia Store application.

Seriously, for Php 3,890, what more can you ask for?!
