Nokia announces Asha 310 with dual-sim, Wi-Fi
Mobile phone maker Nokia expanded its line of low-end smartphones on Tuesday with the Asha 310. This new phone features a 3-inch touchscreen and comes with dual-sim capability and Wi-Fi access and is aimed to bolster the manufacturer's market share in developing markets.

The Finnish company said that the new Asha 310 will come with 20MB of internal storage and support 32GB microSD cards. Nokia has included a 2MP rear camera in the phone and the company claims that it offers talk-time of 17 hours. The Finnish manufacturer is offering 40 free EA games with the phone and has included apps like Xpress Browser, Nokia Maps, Facebook, Twitter and eBuddy. The device also features Nokia's Easy Swap technology to switch between sim cards.

Nokia has been losing market share to Samsung and Apple in the high-end smartphone market and is also struggling at the low end against growing competition from Chinese manufacturers. Nokia plans for the phone to be in stores in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Brazil this quarter at a price of $102.

Key specs:

  • Display: 3-inch touchscreen with 400x240p resolution; 
  • Memory: 20MB internal storage, expandable up to 32GB via microSD card; 
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, 2G, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP; and 
  • Camera: 2MP rear camera
