Nokia unveils smartphone

MANAMA: Nokia has announced that the Nokia Asha 501, the first of a new generation of smartphones to run on the new Asha platform, is available in Bahrain.

The Nokia Asha 501 features distinctively Nokia design, a faster and more intuitive user interface and smarter Internet experiences - all at an affordable price, the company said in a statement yesterday.

"The new Nokia Asha 501 helps people quickly access everything they love with just a simple swipe," said Nokia Middle East vice-president Tom Farrell.

"The compact, easy-to-use device weighs 98 grams and has a scratch-resistant, tempered glass display featuring a three-inch capacitive touchscreen.

"The new Asha comes with the Nokia Xpress Browser pre-loaded, which compresses Internet data by up to 90pc, making mobile browsing faster and more affordable.

"The Nokia Asha 501 retails for BD33," he added.
