Interestingly, the Asha 210 was originally supposed to be the first phone with a dedicated WhatsApp key, but it appears that Nokia has launched the phone with a Facebook button instead. Of course, Nokia always had two versions of the Asha 210, one with a WhatsApp key and the other with the Facebook key, but the roll-out was dependent on the popularity of the services in individual markets, and India was supposed to get the WhatsApp version. But it appears like Nokia has opted for the Facebook variant. Also Read - Nokia C20 Plus arrives in India, Nokia C30 and Nokia C01 Plus announced too
