Nokia Asha 501 Price in India - 3-inch Touch Budget Smartphone

11 April 2013 0

Nokia has launched the new Nokia Asha 501 entry level 3-inch touchscreen phone loaded with Nokia's own Nokia Asha software platform v1.0 (first phone with the new OS) . Targeted at the young people , it is  available in various vibrant colors of Red , Yellow , Green , Black , White , and Cyan . Probably this is one of the step Nokia is taking to counter the highly growing Android smartphones market . Android OS is one of the key reason behind Nokia's sharp share decline in mobile phone's market (other then Nokia's poor decisions like tie-up with Microsoft for Windows Phone OS and launching highly priced smartphones in comparison to Android smartphones ) .

Along with the refreshing body colors the new Nokia Asha 501 comes with optional Red color headphones (check the accessories below) to make a style statement . It comes with a Fastlane feature , inspired by the swipe motion gestures Nokia N9, which makes it faster and easier to access frequent performed tasks by showing up to 50 of your most recent activities . There is no in-built GPS module but you can still use the Cellular network positioning technology via GPRS/EDGE .
