The numbering can get sane people confused when put together like that, but the series name should be enough to tell anyone if they want to go looking for the Nokia Asha 302, Asha 202 and Asha 203 in the first place. The way the Finnish manufacturer puts it, the potential user will most probably be ‘an urban teenager in the likes of Indonesia, India, China, Brazil or Mexico.’
But we already got the idea when the older Asha members were unveiled in October 2011. The first of the new entrants, the Asha 302 has a QWERTY keypad and a 2.4-inch, 320 x 240p screen. It mainly keeps easy connectivity in mind with one-click access to mails, social networking and chats. This Series 40 phone also embeds a 3.2MP camera with 4x digital zoom, stereo FM radio and up to 32GB microSD card support.
It will launch in hues of dark grey, mid blue, golden light, plum red and white. Next in line is the Asha 203 which sports a 2.4-inch display yet again, though the keypad on this one is of the regular type normally associated with feature phones. It’s been equipped with a 2MP camera and a slot that can take a microSD card of up to 32GB. Grey, white and red are the color options in which this Nokia handset will make an appearance.
Lastly, the Asha 202 is designed to be an Easy Swap dual SIM device with a 2.4-inch touchscreen and a standard keypad. The first mentioned function lets users switch SIM cards without powering off the gadget. It can accommodate a microSD card of up to 32GB and embeds a 2MP snapper. The available shades on this one will range from red to black to white to silver.
No official word has been put out on the Asha 302, Asha 202 and Asha 203 release date and price details as yet. The last two phones will arrive with an Exclusive Games Gift from EA each. This means 40 game downloads from the Nokia Store.
