Nokia Asha 210 is a nice looking phone with a dedicated WhatsApp button, the first of its kind. It features a physical QWERTY keyboard and comes in single-SIM and dual-SIM variants. As would be expected on a phone with a dedicated WhatsApp button, Nokia Asha 210 comes with WhatsApp messaging app pre-installed and free for the lifespan of the phone.
The WhatsApp Phone
With WhatsApp’s growing profile with over 200 million active users worldwide and virtually replacing SMS for some users, it was only a matter of time before we see phones with tighter WhatsApp integration. Nokia Asha 210 is the first phone to feature a dedicated WhatsApp button, giving users one click access to chat, upload, like, comment, and share with friends.
WhatsApp will offer its services on the Nokia Asha 210 free for the lifetime of the device.
Despite coming with a dedicated WhatsApp button, the Nokia Asha 210 is not all about WhatsApp. It also comes with Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube apps pre-installed and supports email accounts, making it a brilliant phone for keeping connected out of the box.
Dual-SIM or Single-SIM
Nokia Asha 210 will be available in two variants; a single SIM variant and a dual-SIM variant that comes with Easy-Swap, a technology that enables you swap your secondary SIM without switching-off the phone. Both variants offer similar performance, except that the single-SIM variants offer almost twice as much battery time as their dual-SIM twin.
Note that both variants may not be available in all markets (countries or regions). For example, the dual-SIM variant will probably be available in Nigeria.
Display & Camera
Nokia Asha 210 has a 2.4-inch display with 320 x 240 pixels resolution. It comes with a modest 2.0 megapixels camera with a dedicated camera button. The camera comes with a self-portrait feature that uses voice guidance to assist you take perfect self portraits. Nokia Asha 210 also comes with an image editor.
