Gallery: The cute little Nokia Asha 230 – most affordable Asha touch!

| February 24, 2014 | 7 Replies

At around around 45 EUR/ 59 USD, the Nokia Asha 230 is Nokia’s most affordable Asha touch handset. What’s more is that it is shipping immediately. 2.8″ QVGA sounds impossibly small for me but I’ve got huge 1520-hugging-hands. It actually looks pretty cute, like a little baby smartphone. Perfect secondary phone.

Yesterday there was a post about an odd looking Nokia Asha 501. Must have been a mix up right?

Here’s a Nokia Asha 503 review from PhoneArena. Whilst they like some things like design, battery life, some UI aspects and the camera, they find that it’s now overpriced and dated. Were this available in the USA, for that comparable 100USD price, you could get the 520 or two 520s if you can still find […]
