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.

People in developing countries want aspirational, high quality mainstream products. That is why most "budget" products like the the Tata Nano car have been unmitigated failures.

The 501 sacrifices virtually every useful feature except battery life. It offers a "Third World" experience at a "First World" price.
