Nokia Asha 210 is clearly targeting heavy texters and IM junkies with its physical portrait QWERTY, WiFi and WhatsApp integration deep in the contact book. It also has the Nokia Slam feature for sharing images and videos via Bluetooth without having to pair first.

Nokia Asha 210 has two dedicated quick launch keys, too, one for your social needs that can be programmed to launch the Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter or simply the browser, and the other for camera access. All the keys are with good tactile feedback and easy to feel and press.
The Nokia Xpress Browser precaches the pages on Nokia’s servers and streams optimized content to you, saving you a lot on data traffic. That’s similar to the Opera Mobile concept, but on the 2.4” screen you’d be hard pressed to stay in the browser longer than needed for a quick reference or just for watching low-quality YouTube videos.
Nokia cites the 1200 mAh battery of the Asha 210 as good for 12 hours of talk time, and, given that it only has to maintain a frugal 2G connection, the figure should be pretty close. When you insert two active SIM cards, though, and two network connections have to be maintained, these talk and standby times are likely to diminish.
Nokia Asha 210 comes in a pink, yellow, white and blue colors.
