Screen Shot 2013-02-12 at 08.12.45NokConv has just announced the Nokia Asha 310 with easy Swap Dual SIM and WiFi. This is said to be Dual SIM on steroids.

The Nokia Asha 310 has Dual SIM on steroids. Nokia’s Easy Swap Dual SIM technology is designed to make swapping between different SIM cards as easy as possible, in order to get better tariffs or to switch between SIMs for personal or work use. Your main SIM card sits behind the battery, as normal. But the slot for the second SIM on the side of the phone allows you to switch the second SIM easily, without needing to switch off the phone. With the SIM manager you can assign unique profiles for up to five SIM cards and define which SIM card you want to use for calling, sending text messages or for using Internet data.

  • System: GSM/EDGE  900/1800
  • Dimensions: 109.9 x 54 x 13mm

    This one is what I’ve been waiting for. Dual sim with wifi. Make a 3g version for faster internet.

    a pity dual SIM cant support whatapp

  • Looks like Nokia guys saw this concept I put together earlier (and sent to mynokiablog too.)

    Well at least I now can get Wifi and Dual sim in one set that I like the look of very very much. And I think I can go for this one now. In a month I will be needing a low-cost set to take out. Pitty for the video part though but it will do for now.

    While there certainly is demand for a product like this, this must still count as one of the least exciting Nokia product announcements in recent history. This is basically 308 with WiFi; all well and good, but very predictable.

    This makes me wonder, though, if any new Asha phones will be announced at MWC. The Nokia 307 is still available, but some say it was canceled. 301 is available as well, but we will see if it will be filled or not. The Asha 311 is likely to remain the feature phone flagship for now.

    • My cousin bought 305 last week and I had to check on a few things of new S40. It wasn’t very bad to be honest, the its price. We both were wishing if that thing has Wifi too.

      And I myself been comparing 305 with 303 and 309 I think. I am looking for a dual sim set with wifi but in really really low rate. Earlier two of 310 type was divided, 1 model has wifi and other had dual sim and I was hoping if I could get both in one, this is where 303 fits, and even more perfectly for its keyboard and vertical touch-screen.

      Now with 310 I can think to pick either 303 or 310. I will have to have longer time with 303 too to make up my mind.

    I don’t get the idea. I have 2 sim cards in mobile and don’t need to swap them? Sim A for work, sim B for private life. Why I would to swap any of them? And even when I change one of numbers this is very, very seldom. The most seldom operation of all with the phone.

    What is important: dual sim, dual standby, dual active. I need them both active all the time, no any switching between manually. All functions related to SIM are duplicated to both.

    And one more thing: there is no “main” sim, both are equal in fact.

    Nokia keep on making half baked products. I want a 311 with dual SIM ( that’s a 310 + 3G + Gorilla Glass).
