The Asha 308 is a dual SIM Nokia phone while Asha 309 is a single SIM Nokia phone. Both the devices are Nokia’s most affordable capacitive touchscreen devices to date.
The Asha 308 and Asha 309 are 2G-enabled devices featuring a 3.0” WQVGA capacitive display, multiple home screens, stereo radio, loud speakers and up to 32GB microSD card support. The Asha 309 is the single SIM variant with WiFi, while the Nokia Asha 308 is a dual SIM device featuring Nokia’s industry-leading Easy Swap technology.
The phones also come with the free gift of 40 premium EA games, social features such as standalone Facebook and Twitter clients, the Nokia Messaging Service, and video streaming through the browser from sites like YouTube – a first within the Asha Touch range.
The company also introduced two extensions to its Xpress Browser Internet platform, the only cloud based web browser to support web apps. Both services work with Asha Touch smartphones. In addition to these services, Nokia introduced a new web-based tool that makes it even easier to build new applications.
