Sometimes people are on tight budget but yet want to get a decent phone. While Nokia is paying serious attention to their marketing campaign regarding the latest Lumia devices, there is one more series of handsets by the Finland manufacturer that is not a center of attention in the last couple of months and the name of this segment is Asha. All Nokia phones within this family are considered to be budget phones as the most expensive will hardly exceed the sum of 80$ (off-contract). Of course, we can’t expect powerful hardware or innovative software but this doesn’t mean the devices are not doing well on the market.
As a matter of fact if we judge by the fact that more Asha phones are expected to be released on the horizon, we might say that this segment is actually pretty successful. According to a research most people looking for affordable device will look into Nokia’s Asha since it has everything a user might require from “cheap” phone.
Nokia’s CEO – Stephen Elop, announced that they are doing their best in order to keep up the good work with their portfolio renewing. It stores plans for innovation among Asha’s products, so there is a high chance for us to be pleasantly surprised by the new models from the gamma of Asha. Said in other words, we will see new models sooner than we expect. The latest device – Asha 210 was equipped with functional QWERTY keyboard and this makes us think that the next generation devices might even come full touch screen.
However, you should not pay serious attention to every rumor you find on internet. One thing is sure – within the next couple of weeks we will witness the entirely renewed Nokia Asha lineup. Let’s just hope that Nokia will not let us down because we have some really high expectations.
