Facebook and Nokia Partner On New Nokia Asha 205 Phone


Nokia today announced the introduction of a built-in Facebook button available on the new Nokia Asha 205 mobile phone. The company also unveiled the Asha 206 model.

The dedicated Facebook button has been designed for people who want one-click access to popular Facebook features, including messaging chatting, sharing photos and status updates. Facebook, Twitter and eBuddy apps are preinstalled.

The Asha 205 has also a QWERTY keypad for easy typing of messages. There's also the EA gift pack of 40 free games to download and keep forever.

The phone also sees the debut of a new sharing technology from Nokia called 'Slam'. Let's say you take a picture, choose 'Send' and then 'Slam' from the list. This 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.

The Nokia Asha 205 also features the latest version of the Nokia Xpress Browser is preinstalled and while it doesn?t have GPS, it can make use of cell-tower co-ordinates to present a local map and identify nearby points of interest like cafes or landmarks. The app shares the massive database of places used in Nokia Maps.

Nokia is also offering a Dual-SIM variant of the Nokia Asha 205, which comes with Nokia's Easy Swap technology. This means that you can change one of the SIM cards through a slot on the side, without even switching the phone off. The phone remembers the settings for up to five SIM cards.

The Nokia Asha 205 will be available from Q4 2012. Without any operator subsidies or local taxes, it will cost around $62 USD.

Nokia also announced a second phone today, the Nokia 206. It comes with a traditional keypad and a 2.4-inch screen. Like the Nokia Asha 205, it comes in single and dual-SIM varieties.

As with the Nokia Asha 205, owners of the Nokia 206 can take advantage of the new Nokia Slam technology for sharing items on their phone. The Asha 206 also comes with the Nokia Xpress Browser installed, and allows users to share instantly to Facebook, as well as email. WhatsApp ( in the single SIM version) and eBuddy are preinstalled, and there's a gift pack of ten entertainment titles to download.

The Asha 206 is also equipped with an 1.3-megapixel resolution camera, which can automatically resize pictures to around 700KB. This is great for a Facebook posting.



The Nokia 206 will be available from Q4 2013. Without operator subsidies or local taxes, it will cost around $62 USD.
