Nokia Asha 308 launched in India for Rs 5,685
Nokia has quietly launched the Asha 308 in India and it is now available from its online store for Rs 5,865. The Asha 308 is the latest addition in its full-touch Series 40 feature phones that has already become a huge success for the company with the launch of the Asha 305 and Asha 306 earlier. In the last quarter alone Nokia shipped 6.5 million units of these Asha phones.
On the specs front, the Asha 308 brings a 3-inch capacitive display, dual-SIM, a 2-megapixel camera, microSD card slot and pre-installed Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp clients. Like the Asha 305, it does not have Wi-Fi connectivity, which is available in Asha 309 that is essentially an upgraded variant of the Asha 306. Nokia is also bundling free 40 EA games, like it did with the earlier two phones.
On the core specs front, the Asha 308 might seem similar to the Asha 305 but there are some key differences. The Asha 308 has double the internal memory (20MB), RAM (64MB) and ROM (128MB) than the Asha 305. It also has a capacitive display while the Asha 305 had a resistive display. Another new feature is the ability to record FM radio, which was not available on the Asha 305.
