Thursday, August 9, 2012
NOWADAYS, owning a mobile phone is already a necessity rather than a luxury. While they are mainly used as a communication tool, mobile phones have also become a source of entertainment and a preferred way of connecting to the Internet.
However, even in the Philippines, a nation generally regarded as tech-savvy, not everyone gets to enjoy such privileges. This is mostly because smartphones that contain all these features are oftentimes beyond the means of most Filipinos.
Not anymore. Nokia has found an affordable way to help keep Filipinos connected as it introduces the Asha Touch family. Featuring three exciting smartphones that are perfect for young and urban Filipino consumers, the Nokia Asha Touch range, which consists of Nokia Asha 305, Nokia Asha 306, and Nokia Asha 311, offers unique features that promise several ways of entertainment.
“The new Nokia Asha range will bring the most popular smartphone features within the reach of many. We believe that it is not only important to make the phones affordable, but you also have to be able to really make the most of the features they have. It’s part of our global commitment to connect the next billion to the Internet. These are some of the compelling reasons why we came up with the Nokia Asha Touch family, and we hope that just like other Nokia devices, these smartphones will also become fundamental in our consumers’ daily lives,” said Saulo Passos, Nokia’s communication director for mobile phones.
True enough, the Nokia Asha Touch range of smartphones are packed with qualities that will surely give users their money’s worth. Through their design and exciting features, you will discover that these phones let you explore endless possibilities.
