Leak: Nokia Asha 205 (With Dedicated Facebook Button) & 206?

@NokiaPureView just tweeted us images of the two supposed Asha devices launching today.

First up we have the Asha 205, which is a QWERTY Asha phone. As you can see in the image above, it has a Facebook button. (I wonder if this is the Nokia Facebook phone rumoured a few months back :p). Apparently it has “colourful covers and comes preloaded [with] 40 games.” Expected price point is supposed to be IDR 599.000.

Secondly is the already leaked Nokia Asha 206, that we showed off last week. The Asha 206 will be a Dual-SIM device. It also is supposedly coming “preloaded [with] 40 games, voice instructions for self-portrait(?)”. Similar to the Asha 205, it will be priced at IDR 600.000.

Edit (Ali): I was about to post this but Michael beat me to it, anyways we previously saw an HTC phone with a dedicated facebook button, but that didn’t work out too well for them (the phone was a flop). The real differentiating factor for the 205 would be if it has actual Facebook integration (which would go great with the S40′s data compression) or if it’s just  ahot key to the FaceBook app; either way this is a great way to bring Facebook capable/dedicated phones to the masses who can’t afford a smartphone.
