Summary: The Nokia Asha is available for a street price of Rs.7,000; although you can find it for a bit cheaper, if you look online. This is just a ridiculously high price for this phone, all the more, when you can get some very good Android handsets at this price range. The Samsung Galaxy Y , Spice Mi-350n and even the Samsung Wave Y (which is based on Bada 2.0) are all much better alternatives to the Asha 300.
Summary: A phone that gives you access to basic mail on the go, a bit of web browsing and social networking, the Nokia Asha 300 at Rs. 7,409 offers some nice features such as 3G connectivity, a 1GHz processor and a strong build. The biggest downer however is the absence of Wi-Fi and a cumbersome resistive touchscreen experience.
Pros: 1GHz processor, Good looks and build quality, 3G connectivity, Good battery life
Cons: No Wi-Fi, No multitasking, Resistive touchscreen
Summary: Nokia launched three new feature phones at Nokia World - the dual SIM Asha 200, Asha 303 with a full Qwerty keyboard and touchscreen and the Nokia Asha 300, which sits between the two other devices.
