Nokia Asha Touch 309: New touchscreen phone debuts
The Nokia Asha Touch 309 and 308 have just been unveiled this morning. They’re not high end Windows Phones like Nokia’s lustworthy Lumia line, but instead slick little touchscreen critters with internet skills for a rock bottom price. Come meet them right here.
The Nokia Asha Touch 309 is a three-inch 400×240 resolution touchscreen phone with a nippy 800MHz processor, Wi-Fi and a two megapixel camera. It’s packing one SIM-card slot, while the 308 packs a second one for another phone line.
Both the Nokia Asha Touch 309 and Nokia Asha Touch 308 run S40, Nokia’s low power operating system it’s been using for a decade now – but don’t call them dumbphones. Both can connect you to smartphone using mates with instant message, get you need to go with Nokia Maps, and come preloaded with 40 top EA games to keep your thumbs occupied. There’s also a new version of Nokia’s XpressBrowser on board which even plays YouTube videos.
The Nokia Asha Touch 309 and 308 are set to go on sale later this year for around $99 – just £61. Would you go for this or a cheap Android smartphone? Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments below.
