Earlier this week we got our hands on the Nokia Asha 308; courtesy of Nokia Connects. The Nokia Asha 308 is one of Nokia’s new “Full Touch Asha’s” which have done the unthinkable, bringing decent touch screens to feature phones (or low-end smartphones). The Asha 308 comes with a CAPACITIVE (none of that resistive garbage) 3″ screen (1600 x 1200 pixels), a 2Mp camera, Dual Sim Support, Bluetooth 3.0 and a 25 Day standby lifetime (courtesy of a 1100 Ma Battery).
Surprisingly though the Asha 308 has no WiFi which means all your data consumption will have to go through one of the two sim cards, which could be an issue; but then again S40 is great at compressing data and keeping your bill reasonable. The 308 also comes with 40 preloaded Free EA games! and the usual awesome Nokia navigation for “gratis”.
Check out the unboxing video below: (I honestly don’t know what was wrong with me in the video-I swear I wasn’t drunk; but I wasn’t being too serious).
Stay tuned for a second video, this time showing off the Asha 308′s new Full touch UI that takes a load of inspiration from both Meego and Symbian.
