If being cheap is among the main features you look for in a phone, here’s something for you. Furthermore, if you’re scared of a proper smartphone, but don’t want your next phone to be completely dumb, take a look at this.
The Nokia Asha 300 is now available in the UK, in SIM-free and unlocked form. This comes many months after its original announcement in October of 2011. Since then, we’ve seen it go on sale in India in December, which is logical since this device is geared mainly towards ‘emerging markets’.
Regardless, if you’re in the UK and would like one, you can head to Unlocked Mobiles right now and add it to your cart. It’s priced at £84.98, VAT included.
For that amount of cash you’ll get a 2.4-inch 240×320 resistive touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, a 5 MP camera, 128 MB of RAM, 140 MB of built-in storage space expandable via microSD cards, 10.2 Mbps HSDPA, 2 Mbps HSUPA, Bluetooth, and a 1,110 mAh battery. Do note the absence of Wi-Fi and GPS, if those things interest you. The Nokia Asha 300 runs S40, Nokia’s ‘feature phone’ OS.
