Nokia Asha 301 sets foot in India, up for sale at Rs 5,140

The Nokia Asha 301 is the latest feature phone from the Finland-based manufacturer to have been introduced in India. This device plays successor to a hoard of handsets from the series and just like a number of other Nokia gadgets, comes splashed in vibrant shades such as black, white, cyan, yellow and fuchsia.

Crammed in a candy bar form factor, it is apt for those who prefer the alphanumeric keypad over the QWERTY one. And considering that the OEM has carved two SIM card slots in the phone’s chassis, users can keep their personal and professional lives separate. Although it is a basic device, the Nokia Asha 301 offers access to the internet and also tags along the push mail feature.
