PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is the Nokia I remember. The company just unveiled the Nokia Asha 501, which has a completely new version of the Asha software platform. Fast, responsive, stunningly great and simple hardware, and an unbeatable price ($99!). It borrows a lot from MeeGo on the N9, and overall excites me infinitely more than their Lumia offerings. I want one of these so bad.

Asha 501 promises to be a great PHONE, I can see attention to detail and a quality build. The case colours are lovely and the battery LIFE seriously demands respect.


The problem is that the Nokia 501 is really nothing more than a fairly expensive feature phone with small nasty screen attached. The worst of both worlds.

You can already buy a standard Nokia S40 phone with excellent battery life for $30 or a vastly better Android smartphone for $99. Why would you choose the 501?
