Most social ever: Nokia Asha 205 officially announced.

As expected from the earlier posts (2), here’s the official launch of the Nokia Asha 205. Check out that facebook button.

As mentioned earlier, it features something called “Slam” sharing.

The Nokia Asha 205 sees the debut of a brand new sharing technology from Nokia called ‘Slam’. What is it? Let’s say you take a picture, choose ‘Send’ and then ‘Slam’ from the list. This quickly detects the nearest Bluetooth-enabled device and offers that device the file.


The other person can accept and download the picture instantly, without any need to pair the two devices, as you have to with regular Bluetooth sharing. The owner of the other device doesn’t even need to have a Nokia phone or Slam installed. You can also share using all the normal options like social networks and email.
