Although Nokia‘s main focus these days were dedicated to the Windows Phone smartphones, they still gave time to the budget conscious market by introducing three new additions to the Nokia Asha family. Through the success of the first batch, they came up with – Nokia Asha 305, Nokia 306, and Nokia 311. All three handsets will be touch phones unlike their predecessors which used the physical QWERTY keyboard.

The Nokia 305 and 306’s specifications and features are somewhat identical to each other. They both boast a 3-inch WQVGA Touch Screen Display, GPRS/EDGE mobile data connectivity, and a 2 megapixel rear camera. The only difference among the two is that Nokia Asha 306 will be having Wi-Fi connectivity and the Nokia Asha 305 will carry on the EASY Swap Dual SIM technology (similar to the Nokia Asha 200) which enables the user to easily swap two SIM cards in just a few clicks.

As the name suggest, the Nokia Asha 311 will be the superior among the three devices. It will flaunt a 3-inch scratch resistant capacitive glass screen display, a 1GHz processor, 3.5G connectivity, and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

They will all ship with 15 levels of the Angry Birds game pre-loaded in. Additionally, all three phones will be getting the privilege to download 40 EA games for users to enjoy. Isn’t that sweet?

  • For all the years, Nokia really impress me because of their durability. Nokia doesn’t stop in innovating their products. I like this Nokia Asha 305, because it is a dual sim phone and I know, it’s durable like any other Nokia phones…

  • This is not a smartphone ryt? what would be the use of 1GHz?…

    • For marketing, I guess? Well, I think it will speed up the phone too since old s40 phones have some issues with lag too especially when they get filled up.

    just bought my Asha 306 a while ago at sm.. good estimate on the price! 4.1k bili ko. It’s nice kaso black lang ang available nilang stock – okay naman pero naiinis lang ako kasi while surfing bigla nyang sasabihin na memory full.. anyway, does anyone know where i can get themes for it? A lot of the sites i’ve googled so far seemed to offer bogus stuff.. >_<

    • Thanks for sharing! Maybe you can check Nokia’s Ovi Store.
