Nokia has launched an all new phone in for its Asha series of smartphones in India with Nokia Asha 301. With 3.5G internet speed at your disposal, this Asha phone comes in Easy Swap Dual SIM model. Available in five colors - cyan, yellow, magenta, black and white, the Nokia Asha 301 could be your new value-for-money phone for the Indian youth who want all the basic features at a decent price. Priced in India at Rs. 5349, the Nokia Asha 301 has the rugged look of all the old Nokia basic phones just with brilliant splash of fresh colors.

Sporting a 2.4-inch screen has the basic LCD Transmissive display on an elegantly designed front, this smartphone brings with it a 3.2 megapixel smart camera that allows people a choice of image capture, editing and sharing options, including: Panorama - for wide-angle shots, including group photos and landscapes. Sequential shots - capture five frames in a row with just one click. Self-portrait - Even without a front-facing camera, the built-in voice prompt guides the user to ensure they are in the frame before taking the shot. To make your life easier, there's an in-built 5-in-1 camera app that lets users choose and apply one of five camera effects to an image.


Coming with a traditional alphanumeric keyboard based on the Asha 40 platform, the Asha 301 phone features a 1200 mAh battery that promises 6 hours 3G talktime and 20 hours of 2G standby time. For connectivity, users can tend to USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 3.0 and for storage needs there's a 64 MB of RAM and a microSD card slot for increasing the internal storage capacity by up to 32 GB. With dimensions measuring up to 115 x 40 x 12.5 millimeters, phone is ultra light weight at 100.5 grams, perfectly suited for your jeans pocket.

Mr. Viral Oza, Directior Marketing,Nokia India said "Nokia has been bringing smart innovation on mobile devices to newer price points, feeding the vast appetite for smarter internet experience for consumers who are young, urban, hyper-social and want the smartest features at affordable prices. The Nokia 301 is a power packed feature rich phone with 3.5G internet experience and smart camera. Being the first feature phone that can take panoramic pictures, there’s a lot more that you can do with its camera with 5 in one camera app, panorama mode, sequential shots and a clever little self-portrait mode that audibly prepares you for your next glamorous picture." We are looking forward to more additions in the Asha series of phones to the Indian market. Keep a watch.
@Ashraf HZ • 03 Jul, 2013 Hi Ankita, can you also quote prices in USD? easier for me to gauge cost range 😛

Are Asha phones easy to hack for project development?
@Kaustubh Katdare • 03 Jul, 2013 Rs. 5349 would be about roughly about $90. The phone's cheap!
@AbhinavS • 04 Jul, 2013 No matter how cheap the phone is, Nokia have lost all the "Asha"(Hope) of competing with the Rivals. People are craving for Micromax and here they come with Canvas again. 😁
@Sarathkumar Chandrasekaran • 04 Jul, 2013 Yes I agree with AbhinavS.
Nokia is reworking on its strategy and targeting middle class once again.But micromax musiq and canvas are on a rapid phase in sale and nokia cant stand still.
my review is simple-Nokia lost its competition because of its display size.Just 2.4 inch for 5349rs is irritating.Though it may be loaded with variety of features , users find it difficult in browsing with 2.4 inch screen.
likes:sequential shot,self portrait.
