New Nokia Phones First to Feature "Slam" Sharing

— November 27, 2012

Nokia's latest phones, the Asha 205 and Nokia 206, are designed with the social user in mind -- and may entice enterprise employees seeking intuitive collaboration features at a budget-friendly price. The phones are the first to feature Slam, Nokia's latest innovation for sharing content quickly and easily.

Slam lets users share multimedia content such as photos, videos and documents with nearby friends and colleagues, and works with most Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones without the need to pair devices, and without the recipient needing to also have Slam.

Nokia Asha 205
The Nokia Asha 205 includes a tactile QWERTY keyboard as well as a dedicated Facebook button. Combined with eBuddy Chat, Twitter and support for popular email accounts such as Gmail, the Nokia Asha 205 is designed to keep users connected to their social networks.

- eBuddy screen notifications that keep users up-to-the-minute on new conversations
- The free Nokia Life+ web app, including the Life Skills and Live Healthy services
- A comprehensive mobile entertainment package, including 40 free EA Games available for download, along with tens of thousands of other apps available from the Nokia Store

- Great standby time: up to 37 days with single SIM and up to 25 days with dual SIM

Nokia 206
The Nokia 206 features a classic alphanumeric keypad and a generous 2.4" display, giving ample room to surf the Internet, play games, or chat with friends. People can also enjoy fast access to Facebook and Twitter right from the home screen.

Other key features of the Nokia 206 include:
- A 1.3MP camera that optimizes images for Facebook
- Socialfeatures such as eBuddy Chat, WhatsApp** and a gift pack of 10 free, premium content items
- Available in single SIM and dual SIM models
- Dual SIM model features Nokia's exclusive EasySwap technology that enables users to change SIM cards without having to turn off the device

Both phones are priced at approximately $62 and are expected to start shipping by the end of the year.

The new devices feature the Nokia Xpress Internet platform, which uses Nokia's cloud technology to reduce data consumption by up to 90%, helping users enjoy more affordable Internet access. They also feature Nokia Nearby, a web app that helps users discover points of interest close to their location.
