  1. The Nokia Asha 205 might actually be called that elusive Facebook phone with its dedicated Facebook button. As a portrait QWERTY device with very affordable price tag it is evidently geared towards teens and emerging markets, as it also comes in a single and dual SIM varieties.

    There are a few vibrant colors for the casing (black, cyan, magenta, yellow, and white), and the phone runs on Series 40, which Nokia now insists to be called a smartphone platform due to the numerous Java apps and the like available for it.

    The phone is all-plastic, small and light, though somewhat chubby, with a 2.4-inch non-touch display with fairly weak viewing angles, a VGA camera, and microSD card support. Connectivity is limited to 2G only, but with the new SLAM Bluetooth sharing technology you’d be able to quickly share files between devices. Thededicated Facebook button simply launches the Facebook app, but you can remap it to do something else.

    One thing you can brag about with the Asha 205 is battery life that most smartphones can only dream of. The dual-SIM version of the device comes with a stand-by time of 25 days, versus the 37 days of the regular variation. Overall nothing fancy but the Facebook button, yet the world needs brand-name basic phones, too.

  2. This phone is a poem, a woman I want to hold each night before I sleep and the one I’d want to wake up to each morning. This phone is a friend I’d wanna talk to when am happy and a shoulder to lean on when am in sorrow. This phone is a mountain of mysteries which I want to keep discovering with every touch, the mirror on which I want to look my face at. I’m in love with Asha, the whole world should know that!!

  4. First of all being a Loyal Nokia user,The Nokia Asha 205 will certainly be an upgrade from my current status.
    The feature I would use the most would be the dedicated Facebook button and the fact that this phone has social network server integration is a total plus, since am an online marketer it would be awesome to be in the loop with whats up on social media.
    Speaking of whatsapp, this would be the first feature i install if it is not preloaded, just to stay in touch with all my whatsappérs.
    The ability to record straight from radio is just too cool, ,can’t wait to see how this works.
    Oh and then twin sim slot, surely its about time I stopped removing one sim from my current phone and putting my other line just so that I can use it, my single sim Nokia has had enough of this.
    Plus the QWERTY keyboard is absolute bliss; I text and email a lot and I am always making noise on social media.
    Oh Nokia Asha 205 please take my troubles away.

  6. I have a a dual sim phone “brand withheld – though for comparison I can say what phone it is.” with a lower price point that the Nokia 205. Knowing what i know know having had the phone phone for the past three weeks. My phone has nothing on the Nokia 205. It takes 30 seconds for a social media i.e twitter and facebook update to take effect. Am stuck with a wap browser that’s like in the living in the eighties. Am impressed that the Nokia 205 supports Javascript 1.8, XHTML, WAP 2.0 , HTML and HTML 4.0 among others. With an FB dedicated button , that all a social media lover wants. Quick access and great speeds.

  7. am sure this phone will be of value because of the following reasons

    1st it has got all those incredible features like the applications ,facebook twitter emails and also it has a longlife battery from what i have heard from my pals .

    2nd once i win , i want to give it to my dad as a present for FATHERS DAYS ,i have already wished to give my dad a present even if its a small thing , am sure he will apprecite it

    3rd it will then ease communication with my dad because at times he is always offline because of low battery where he has to take it to fundi for charging with universal

    4th it will be a great honor to #HAPAKENYATEAM for making this ease for me

    thank you !

  8. why Nokia Asha 205 stands out from other Dual SIM phones

    1st it has got all those incredible features like the applications ,facebook twitter emails and also it has a longlife battery from what i have heard from my pals . by this it will ease on communication cost with my parents , so i will have to introduce my dad on how to utilise these features .

    the other thing is its outstanding battery life , where my dad will not keep on changing phone batteries as it can stay long and thus save 20 bob charging cost

    my is a fan of football and i want to keep him update on what happening , so by accessing facebook or twitter he will be able to be updated with various football fan page a

    this phone suits my dad because he always has 2 (mulika mwizi) and at times you can think he is carrying alot of cash . so i want to make it easy for him by giving him this dual sim to ease movement and also secure him from robbers who may think he is carrying cash .

    above all those ,its the best simple and easy phone to use , best for our grandfathers/mothers etc

    so i want to give it to my dad as a present for FATHERS DAYS ,i have already wished to give my dad a present even if its a small thing , am sure he will apprecite it.

    4th it will be a great owner to #HAPAKENYATEAM for making this ease for me

    thank you !

  10. Hapa kenya ni neno la kiswahili kwa hivyo jibu langu litakuwakwa lugha hiyo. Nokia asha 205, jina lenyewe ni la mwanamke mrembo. Asha ina huduma ya kuweka laini mbili, huduma hii husaidia mtu atakapo kutumia laini moja kwa mtandao na nyengine kwa kupiga simu za kawaida.. Mengine yanayovutia na simu hii ni kuwa inatumia moto vyema na ni bei nafuu kwa duka

  11. First of all being a Loyal Nokia user, The Asha 205 will certainly be an upgrade from my current eSeries.

    The feature I would use the most would be the dedicated Facebook
    button and the fact that this phone has social network server
    integration is a total plus, since am an online marketer it would be
    awesome to be in the loop with whats up on social media.

    Speaking of whatsapp, this would be the first feature i install if it
    is not preloaded, just to stay in touch with all my whatsappérs 🙂

    The ability to record straight from radio is just too cool, its like
    having a PVR but for radio lol! can’t wait to see how this works. (The
    Lunje in me).

    Oh and then twin sim, surely its about time I stopped removing one
    sim from my current phone and putting my other line just so that I can
    use it, my single sim nokia has had enough of this.

    Oh Nokia Asha 205 !!!! Totally Stands out from other Dual SIM phones

  12. This phone comes in many different colours to stand out from the
    usual grey/whites in the market. It comes in five colours i.e. black,
    cyan, magenta, yellow, and white.

    The main features of the phone include its QWERTY keypad, relatively
    wide screen, a browser that can compress data up to 90% of original size
    (saves your MBs), social networking abilities as well as making sharing
    of multimedia easier through the Slam feature which allows users to
    share multimedia content like photos and videos with nearby friends
    almost instantly via Bluetooth. Through Slam, users are able to share
    content faster than with Bluetooth alone (no need to do any initial
    pairing.)

    Nokia Asha 205 Dual SIM Stands out

  13. The Nokia asha 205 is nice simple phone running on s40.
    It has the new feature called nokia slam which acts as a simplified bluetooth feature for sharing files even without paring the two devices as long as the bluetooth is on then sharing is easy even on andriod powered phones.

  14. Nokia Asha 205 is very light with a longer battery life.You don’t have to worry about the battery.Its a dual sim and you don’t have to switch off your phone to change or insert sim card.Comes with 40 free EA games and Slam feature which you can conveniently share photos and video without using data.I would recommend for everyone.kipsang.samson@gmail.com
