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.

Nope they do not beat it.


You compare price WITHOUT carrier subsidies (Asha) to WITH carrier subsidies (meantioned phones).

You are wrong. I compare unsubsidized price. There is already a selection of sub-$100 Android phones, for example the Huawei Y201 Pro: Unsubsidized price including 19% VAT is 89 EUR in Germany.

Android phones are expected to hit the $50 price point this year.
