Today in an event in Bangkok, Nokia, continuing their mission of connecting the next billion consumers to the information and internet, unveiled three new touch phones in the S40 powered Asha Range- The Nokia Asha 305, The Nokia Asha 306 and The Nokia Asha 311.

These new Asha phones have been designed to provide an incredibly rich, smartphone-like experience to consumers who want to be set free from excessive data consumption costs and short battery life. And not to forget about the all new, fully revamped S40 touch interface that is designed and crafted especially for these phones.

Here’s what Mary T.McDowell, the Executive Vice President of Mobile Phones Division for Nokia said on the launch:-

These phones deliver on what young, urban people value most — a great-looking device; and an intuitive and affordable experience for connecting to the internet, to their friends, and to a world of entertainment, web apps and content.”

These new devices takes full advantage of the Nokia Browser 2.0, a major recent update which uses Nokia’s cloud technology to reduce data consumption by up to 90%, meaning that consumers can enjoy faster and cheaper internet access.
