The two touchscreen handsets are pitched at emerging-market punters seeking mobile internet access and who might otherwise be tempted by a cheap Android smartphone. Nokia is lining up its Lumia series of Windows Phone handsets against the Google-running competition.

Both Ashas have a 3in, 400 x 240 display, Micro SD for storage and a 2MP camera on the back.

The 308 has space for two Sims, the 309 for one. They run Nokia's own OS - Symbian Series 40, in other words. ®
