At $72, the handset offers a 2-megapixel rear camera and comes with dual SIM features. The handset is powered by a processor which is below 1GHz, but the Asha 210 is a cheap handset, therefore less powerful processor feels okay to the handset.

The key feature in the phone is its dedicated What’s App button, or in some markets, a Facebook key. But the handset lacks 3G capabilities so that you need to depend on Wi-Fi for internet.

The Asha 210 packs a few features which makes the handset adorable. Though the apps are slow to load, functions such as messaging and the phonebook are very simple to use.  The QWERTY keyboard is very good and delivers excellent typing experience.

The handset comes with S40 OS and sports a 2.4-inch screen that has a 320 x 240 resolution, which isn’t bad. The Asha 210 will be on sale by June 2013.

Verdict

The Asha 210 is a great handset with the  Qwerty keyboard feature and cheap enough to justify its drawbacks. It has good build quality and memory can be expanded using a 64GB microSD card. Nokia’s Asha 210 is made for those who looking for a budget Android alternative.
