Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Nokia expanded its Asha range of budget S40 smartphones today with the 305, 306 and 311, the first three models in the series to feature touchscreen interfaces.

The Nokia Asha 311 features a 1GHz processor with a 3in scratch-resistant capacitive touchscreen. There is also a 3.2Mp camera and various pre-installed apps such as Nokia Maps, WhatsApp and Angry Birds.

The Nokia Asha 305 comes with dual-Sim capabilities and a 3in resistive touchscreen, while its sister, the Asha 306, drops the multi-Sim in favour of Wi-Fi. Both feature 2Mp cameras and Bluetooth capabilities.

All three devices run the Asha Touch UI – a swipe-enabled version of S40 – and come with the Nokia Browser 2.0, as well as the option to download 40 EA games for free.
