Nokia Asha 200 and 201 - hands on walk through on video

OMR has attended Nokia's annual event in London, where a number of new handsets were launched - including the low costing Nokia Asha 200 with dual SIM capabilities and the single SIM version, with music functions.

The Nokia Asha 200 can contain two SIM cards at once, which is ideal for use when travelling as the phone can receive and make calls on both cards. They can also be added whilst the phone is up and running, where 5 SIM cards' details can be remembered.

Nokia's web browser on the Asha 200 and 201 offers access to social networking sites, along with providing web compression to save on data allowances - in much the same way as the Opera browser operates on other mobiles.

The video below notes the features of the two devices, with the home screen contacts; data usage on the phones; on-board games; qwerty keyboard for bigger fingers, with auto-complete; push email capabilities and musical aspects of the 201.
