Earlier this week I showed you Nokia’s teaser, showing us just a small portion of a device that appeared to be a QWERTY style keyboard and a screen. With little to no information we naturally assumed it would be a new mobile device. I was not really surprised when I read the press release from Nokia this morning.
Nokia Asha 210 is available in 5 fantastic colors Black, Cyan, Magenta, White, and Yellow! With an estimated MSRP of $72 USD.
Nokia tells us that their new Asha 210 is their “Most social Asha yet”. This might be true, considering it has the world’s first WhatsApp button. WhatsApp is an app designed for social butterflies to contact all of their friends, either individually or in a group, and send as many images, video and audio messages as your heart might desire. There are a few other apps out there that allow you to do the same for free, WhatsApp is $1 USD per year of use.
WiFi, the only way to have a phone that allows you to get on the internet, allowing you to get faster than network speeds, and not limited or slowing down your internet capabilities if you use over the designated amount.
Nokia tells us that we can take great images with the 2 megapixel camera, giving you dedicated hardkey for quick and easy use! It also has built-in voice guides so you wont need to stand in-front of the bathroom mirror to take your self-portraits! You can also edit images quickly for uploading that important photo to your social media pages. Don’t forget Nokia’s SLAM feature, using Bluetooth it will allowing you to share images, contacts, and more to other phones without the need to pair devices!

– Social phonebook integration with the ability to launch WhatsApp direct from contact cards in the Phonebook
