Video: Nokia Asha 311 (full touch S40 capacitive) unboxing and hands on (Vietnamese)

These videos were uploaded a couple of days ago but seem to have been buried in stupid unlock-nokia spam videos that youtube refuses to remove as mass advertising because they suck.


Anyway, minirant over, back to the video. This is a video unboxing the nicer of the full touch S40 experiences, the Nokia Asha 311. The 311 looks better, better innards, has capacitive screen to really take advantage of the swiping gestures but will set you back a little bit more than the 305/306.

Just by being capacitive, all the featherlight interactions make more sense. Pinch zooming, brush swiping, scrolling – all effortless and responsive, as opposed to the dog-like resistive which needs effort and disrupts the fluid touch experience.

    Elop doesn’t want this to be a success*, the end goal is for this to fail so he can squeeze WP down here too, embrace Android (which will be a mediocre success at best), or abandon the sector altogether & focus only on the higher levels, & :. continue to fail & then go bankrupt or be bought.

    *there’s no way it can be longer term, he knows that, Meltemi would’ve ensured a much better chance at competing, S40 will lose eventually.

      Yes, Elop and the board are determined to fail. It’s a great goal.

      Try a better reason like ramping up the meltemj ecosystem wasn’t working
