Nokia Asha 300

 Nokia Asha 300 Available now
30th October 2011

The Nokia Asha 300 is a revision of last year's C3 Touch and Type handset, adding very little in the way of features, but cutting a great big amount off the price tag.

In these days of touchscreen phones, the Asha 300 may seem like something of a relic. But rather unusually, it does combine a small touchscreen with a numeric keypad, so it can be used either like a traditional "dumb" phone with through the keymat, or by using the simple touchscreen interface.

By "simple", we mean that this is an old-style resistive panel that is also quite small at 2.4" in size with 240 x 320 pixels in resolution. On the back is a 5 megapixel camera capable of VGA resolution video capture. There's a media player, FM radio, microSD slot and quad-band 3.5G support but no WiFi.

This is a Series 40 feature phone rather than a smartphone, but you can still download Java applications and the Asha 300 comes with a preinstalled version of Angry Birds Lite plus a web browser and social networking tools.

This is a very lightweight device, weighing just 85 grams and measuring 112 x 50 x 13mm. The 1100 mAh battery is quoted as giving up to 4.3 hours talktime on 3G and 24 days standby time.

Costing just €85 before tax and subsidy, the Nokia Asha 300 will be available in several colours depending on market and should start shipping before the end of the year.
