Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia expands budget Asha line-up

Nokia expanded its line of low-end smartphones with the Asha 310, aiming to bolster its market share in developing markets.

Mobile phone Nokia plans for its new low-end smartphone Asha 310 to be in stores in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Brazil this quarter at a price of US$102.

The Asha 310 comes with a dual-Sim card slot and Wi-Fi access, aiming to bolster its market share in developing markets.

Nokia has been losing market share to Samsung and Apple in the high-end smartphone market and is also struggling at the low end against growing competition from Chinese manufacturers.

The Finnish company said that the new Asha 310 will come with a full-touch 3-inch display and 2 megapixel camera. The phone allows users to switch between Sim cards and Wi-Fi to keep down costs.
