Nokia Asha 501 Starts Arriving on Shelves

Starting this week, Nokia Asha 501, the latest handset in Nokia’s popular lineup and the first of them to pack the new Asha platform, will be rolling out to stores around the world. 

Today, the Finnish mobile phone maker announced that the device will hit shelves in Thailand and Pakistan in the beginning, with India to follow shortly. 

Starting with the next week, the device is set to become available for purchase in more markets around the world, and should be released in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific.

Furthermore, Nokia announced that the handset is set to start shipping in Latin American countries too in late summer. 

The Nokia Asha 501 smartphone was made official in India last month, and will hit the market in six different color flavors, namely cyan, bright red, yellow, bright green, black, and white.

The same as other devices in the Asha series, the new mobile phone features an affordable price tag, set to become available at only around $99 (€75) before local taxes and subsidies.

“It has a colorful, durable and seamless industrial design, combined with a new swipe interface called Fastlane, which means that you are never far away from accessing all the important things that you love, such as your social networks, games, music and favorite apps.” 

Nokia Asha 501 will include a Nokia Stereo Headset WH-208 in the package, which is a new wired headset that should fit great with the rest of the Nokia devices. 

Furthermore, the smartphone will provide users with the possibility to replace its shells, which will increase the customization level they can enjoy. 

“In addition to the WH-208, the Nokia Asha 501 has interchangeable back covers – called the CC-3070. As standard, you’ll receive with the phone one back cover in your chosen color,” said post continues. 

“The first one will also match the color of the little button on the back of the phone that, when pressed, helps you pop off the cover. If you want to mix it up and change the color of your Nokia Asha 501, the CC-3070 is available in other colors and will have an RRP of €8.90 ($11.6).”
