Overview
The Nokia Asha 501 is the evolution of the Series 40 based touchscreen phones made by the Finnish phone maker. The interface is completely re-designed; keeping touchscreens in mind and optimised for a smaller screen size. The phone has a 3-inch QVGA capacitive display and comes in bright coloured shells that are interchangeable. It has a lockscreen that permanently stays on, showing the time and notifications. The Asha 501 has a petite form factor. It is a dual-SIM phone and both the SIMs are hot-swappable. There is 128MB of internal memory and a microSD card slot for expansion (Nokia is bundling a 4GB card along with the package).

Being an inexpensive handset, Nokia has chosen not to include 3G, just 2G and WiFi support for Internet. But server-side compression while web-browsing makes the experience better. There's a 3.2MP camera at the back but does not have an LED flash. Basics like FM Radio and Bluetooth are covered. The Asha Software Platform 1.0 that powers this phone has an interesting User Interface element called 'FastLane'. This shows you the last 50 actions that you have performed with the phone. Sensors like an accelerometer and a proximity sensor, that are usually found in smartphones, are put in the Asha 501. The phone comes built-in with many popular apps like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, an email client etc. and also 40 games. More can be downloaded from the Nokia Store. The battery life is also deemed to be good — it has a whopping 40+ day standby life.
Asha 502 is a slightly better version of Asha 500 and Asha 501. The Fastlane feature is now customizable to only show apps that you want. Also, you can see the Facebook updates and access Twitter easily. The phone will be available in six bright colors namely yellow, red, green, cyan, black and white. The body is covered with a transparent polycarbonate covering. It has added few cool features like taking a photo with a single swipe and sharing it on social network with a single tap. Asha 502 is bigger than the Asha 500 as its screen size is 3 inches. In the camera department, Nokia sure has improved its standards in this Asha range. The Asha 502 has a 5MP camera along with LED Flash to aid low-light photography, which was missing in Asha 500 and 501. The switching of SIM cards is quite easy and what makes this phone more better is that it remembers the last five SIM configurations. It doesn’t come in single SIM variant. It supports 2G and WiFi for internet. This phone is a tad costlier than Asha 500.
