 Nokia Asha 310 Available now
12th February 2013

In the past, some Nokia Asha phones such as the 308 and 309 have been dual-SIM, and some have had WiFi. It seemed that you could have either one or the other, presumably due to space constraints and cost. Of course, it's nice to have the best of both worlds, and that's where the Nokia Asha 310 comes in.

The Asha 310 comes with a 3.0" 240 x 400 pixel capacitive touchscreen display, a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, Bluetooth and a microSD slot with a 4GB card in the standard sales package (or just 2GB in Brazil, we don't know why). You can hot-swap SIM cards without turning off the phone. There's also a stereo wired headset in the box, which is nice when you consider that the Asha 310 is slated to sell for $102 (or €76) before tax and subsidy.

 Nokia Asha 310 Cellular data support is limited to 900/1800 MHz GPRS and EDGE only, but the Nokia Xpress browser is designed to make mobile browsing a lot quicker, and for anything else there is WiFi.. if you really want 3G then the Asha 311 has that, but is single-SIM only. The Asha 310 comes with a 1110 mAh battery which is quoted as giving up to 17 hours talktime and 25 days standby, and the whole package measures 110 x 54 x 13mm and weighs 104 grams.

Nokia are trying to promote the Asha line as smartphones, but they're really only advanced feature phones. There are 40 free EA games to download plus many more from the Nokia Store, the Asha 310 will interact with social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube plus eBuddy instant messaging. Gaming is supported by an accelerometer, and the loud 106 phon speaker on the back means that you will be packing a party in your pants if you want to.

These touchscreen Ashas are usually attractive devices, and the Asha 310 is no exception.. it certainly looks more expensive than it actually is. Nokia say that it should be available from Q1 2013 in Black, White and Golden Light colour schemes. The target markets are Asia, India, the Middle East, Africa and Brazil although it is possible that specialist retailers may be able to import it into other markets.
