Specs and What to watch in Nokia Asha 205
Asha 205 integrates Facebook and a handful of internet based chat services. Asha 205 is really the first ever social qwerty phone that comes with a Facebook hotkey.
Added to that Asha 205 debuts a new featured christened “SLAM”. Using which you can exchange files and data in an unpaired state. Before you jump into the conclusion that it is copied from NFC (Near Field Communication), let us explain how SLAM works. Activate your Bluetooth to send the file, SLAM traces any nearby Bluetooth device and through a secure channel transports the file. The recipient doesn’t essentially need to have either of SLAM or a Nokia handheld.
Asha comes pre-installed with a navigation app named nearby using which the users can avail the Local maps. This needs no GPS connection or hotspot but seamlessly looks for nearby restaurants, theatres and cafes.
Dual Sim support – A fully functional dual SIM card support is available with the Asha 205 and the same doesn’t hamper the performance of the device. However, it will take some time to find out how it impacts the battery life.
