Nokia’s Asha pseudo-smartphones are quite successful at the moment, as 9.3 million units have been sold in the last quarter (Q4, 2012). That’s why Nokia thought it would be a good idea to introduce a limited edition of the Asha 308, Asha 309 and Asha 311.
Gathered under the name of Nokia Asha Charme, the new handsets comes with floral patterns on the back case, representing Chrysanthemums (apparently a symbol of the sun in Eastern mythology).
Unfortunately for Asha fans around the world, the Charme phones will be available only in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and a few other CIS countries. The Asha Charme 308 and 309 will cost 4,490 RUB each (around $148), while the Asha Charme is going to be a bit more expensive: 4,990 RUB ($165). All three of them should be out before the end of January.
Just like the regular editions, the Nokia Asha Charme 308 and 309 share most of their features including: 3 inch touchscreen display with 400 x 240 pixels, GSM / EDGE connectivity, 2MP rear camera, and a 1,110 mAh battery. The 309 has Wi-Fi, while the 308 doesn’t (instead, this one supports two SIM cards).
The Asha Charme 311 features HSDPA, a 3 inch touchscreen display with 400 x 240 pixels, 1GHz single-core processor, Wi-Fi, a 3.2MP rear camera, and the same 1,110 mAh battery.
