Feb 22, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Nokia Corporation, a provider of telecommunications infrastructure hardware, software and services, has announced the introduction of the Nokia Asha 310, a new Dual SIM smartphone with Wi-Fi support.
With Nokia's built-in Easy Swap Dual SIM technology, consumers can use the external slot on the Nokia Asha 310 to insert a secondary SIM card, while keeping their principal SIM card in place behind the battery, the company said.
Nokia Easy Swap Dual SIM makes it possible to assign and store unique profiles for up to five SIM cards. Users can designate SIM cards for text, voice and data and switch between them at their convenience. The addition of Wi-Fi in the Nokia Asha 310 gives users an easy way to enjoy more online, including streaming videos from YouTube or downloading the 40 free EA Games from Nokia Store. The ability to connect to free Wi-Fi hotspots whether at home or on the go means users aren't constrained by their data plan, the company added.
The Nokia Asha 310 comes pre-loaded with Nokia Xpress Browser, which delivers support for web apps. Nokia Xpress Browser compresses Internet data by up to 90%.
Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia, said: The Nokia Asha 310 is the first-ever Nokia smartphone to offer both Easy Swap Dual SIM and Wi-Fi in the same device. It gives consumers the best of both worlds, allowing them to separate work and play, or speak with friends on other mobile networks more affordably. The addition of Wi-Fi support gives users the freedom to enjoy much more of the Internet compared to competitive devices at this price point."
Nokia Asha 310 features a 3" scratch-proof, capacitive touchscreen. It features a 2 megapixel camera and comes with a 4GB memory card included, with support for a further 32GB of external memory. The Nokia Asha 310 will be available to purchase in Asia, India, the Middle East, Africa and Brazil starting Q1 2013, the company concluded.
