Nokia Asha 200 - a full QWERTY dual SIM phone

By
Pink Nokia Asha 200

Nokia has just launched the Nokia Asha 200 on Philippine. This QWERTY and dual SIM phone comes with 7 attractive colors (Graphite, Green, Blue, Aqua, Pearl White, Light Pink, Pink, Orange).  It has 2.4" screen (with 320x240 pixels, non touchscreen :( ) , Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and EDR (no 3g & Wifi :( ) , 2mp Camera, and other standards on feature phones.

This phone may not be the most feature packed phone but it will surely maximize the way you use your "phone" (because its not a smartphone so dont expect too much) using traditional call and text with its Dual SIM capabilities (lets you use 1 phone with 2 sim cards) and a large 1430 mah battery that will keep it running for a very long time. It will be priced very aggressively so stay tuned for the price range as we gather information about it :P
