- Nokia Asha 205 is the ultimate social phone, with a QWERTY keyboard and new Facebook button

Nokia today unveiled two new devices in its Mobile Phones portfolio, designed for offering consumers great Internet experiences at affordable price points.

Introducing Slam for fast, in the moment content-sharing

The Nokia Asha 205 and Nokia 206 are the first Mobile Phones devices to include Nokia's exclusive Slam feature.

"The latest Nokia devices give super-social consumers new ways to express their personalities through design, color and innovative new features like Slam," explains Timo Toikkanen, Executive Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia. "Both devices are built with the trust and quality people have come to expect from Nokia, and offer smarter Internet experiences that help save money today and tomorrow."

People can also enjoy fast access to Facebook and Twitter right from the home screen.
