Nokia has added a 15th device to the Asha range of devices that serve as an upgrade to the Series 40 feature phones. On first look you will notice it looks like a blend between the once famous Nokia N8 and Nokia C7 in design. The Asha 310 is special in that it’s the first of the Ashas to sport both Dual-SIM and WI-Fi in the same box.
The Nokia Dual SIM has a feature called Dual-SIM swap that allows you to hot swap a SIM card without the need to switch off the device. This also has ability to remember settings of upto 5 SIM cards (I wonder who has all those) so even if you don’t reboot, the SIM will pick networks and all other things like messages and call logs.
As usual, Asha continues to come with the “40 free EA games from Nokia store” package. Xpress browser allows you to compress data so you can use limited data especially if your MNO has that priced high. You know nowadays they came clear, “we don’t do unlimited internet”.
