Video: Nokia Asha 300 touch and type hands on demo and Angry Birds! (filmed with N8)

Hi folks. As you may notice, the stuff we got from Nokia World is slowly trickling in today. This is our first video with the Asha 300 touch and type. Pretty much the very popular C3-01 with 1GHz, polish in the design and an additional messaging button. My sister loves her C3-01. Can’t get enough of the Opera browser.

Oh, you can also see Angry Birds demoed here. No more necessity to get a smartphone. Now the millions of S40 users can enjoy throwing poultry to kill some swines.

BTW this video is recorded by the N8. I am stunned not only by the brilliant picture quality, but also by the audio. Right there in person I thought none of this would come through as it was so noisy. The mic placements and the continuous autofocus when set to macro is perfect for events like this. No wonder @Chippy uses a N8 for his stuff.

    The new full page ads are quite obtrusive. Im free with banner ads but sometimes whenever I am brought to a new page to view ads, that a different story.

    More ads r cool but please no full page ads

    And there’s the rub. I’d love a phone so usable as the C3-01, and now the Nokia Asha 300. It’s so functional. But I want a camera phone as well with Carl Zeiss, and quality stereo speakers without buying any extra speaker accessories, and then a bigger screen becomes a mini tablet which I could use as a teaching aid……

    Audio on N8 is really fabulous! You can film on a rock concert and hear lyrics beautifully! Horrible thing is, that if you sing along it will hear on the video even though anybody else wouldn’t hear it :’D And that basically ruins the video, so better not to sing along :DD But even if you wouldn’t hear your own voice in noisy situations, N8 hears it :)

    Angry Birds is going to be a hit in India and Africa for sure! :D Good for Rovio and a selling point for Nokia Ashas. It looks that it works quite well on resistive screen on 203 and working better on 300 with capacitive screen. I’m so sure these three(four) Asha devices will sell very well :)
