Nokia also announce brimful of Asha phones
As well as the headline grabbing Lumia 800, Nokia also announced a handful of other phones at Nokia World 2011.
While the Lumia 800 looks like it might be the only phone at Nokia World to make it to the UK, Nokia also announced a new range of phones for emerging markets called Asha, a second Windows Phone smartphone and a new colour for the N9.
The Asha range run on the Symbian S40 operating system and are aimed at connecting the ‘next billion’ people to the internet in countries in Asia, South America and Africa.
The range is made up of four phones, the Asha 200, 201, 300 and 303 and bring a limited smartphone experience for a low price.
Nokia also announced that the popular smartphone game Angry Birds will now be available for mobiles running the Symbian S40 operating system.
The second Windows Phone smartphone to be made by Nokia will be the Lumia 710. This is an affordable version of the Lumia 800 and features less memory, a lower spec camera and replaceable covers – but otherwise has similar specs to the 800.
It has the same size screen – although the case of the phone is a bit bulkier – and the same 1.4GHz processor, but costs only €270 to the 800′s €420.
Unfortunately the Lumia 710 doesn’t seem to be coming to the UK – which is a shame as it looks like a bargain – but we can always hope that Nokia changes its mind.
Finally, Nokia also quietly revealed that it is releasing a white version of the Nokia N9 – although as even the other versions of the phone haven’t made it to the UK we’ve got little hope for this one to make it to our shores. However, as it uses the same casing as the Lumia 800 this could mean we might just be seeing a white version of that phone popping up some time in the future.
