Nokia Asha 310 with dual SIM is another model of the Finnish manufacturer, standard for aesthetics presented by nokia 305, 306, 308 and 309. For the first time Nokia combined in a single model two cards support and WiFi.
The manufacturer in the press release called Asha 310 a smartphone model, which seems to be quite excessive, because the fact that the phone works with Nokia OS system, Series 40 interface and WiFi rather does not make it a smartphone. The assessment, however, is left to future users, because the semantic scope of the word smartphone, can be stretched and as you can see on these phones.
It is known that Nokia Asha 310 is a device with a capacitive touch screen and multitouch (although Nokia does not specify the number of points). It is known that among the local interfaces there are wired USB and wireless Bluetooth and WiFi, without n standard. The phone supports two SIM cards, though we don’t know in what mode. Information of switching cards suggests that they are not active at the same time. On the other hand, 2 icons on the screen suggest simultaneous work.
The second card can be inserted at any time through the Easy Swap Dual SIM - the socket is accessible from the outside without opening the casing. Asha 310 may be, of course, connected to the Wi-Fi hot-spots, but does not serve as one of them. It will offer the IM application and e-mail.
Its compact camera has a 2-megapixel matrix, fixed focus and the ability to record video at a resolution of 176x144 pixels. There is 64 MB RAM and the nominal size of the ROM is 128 MB. The set comes with a 2 or 4GB memory card included depending on sales region. There is no 3G network support, no GPS.
Nokia Asha 310 will be available in black, white and gold, in Asia, India, the Middle East, Africa and Brazil starting Q1 2013. Suggested pricing is 102 USD before taxes and subsidies.
