The Nokia Asha 201 was in the year of its release in February 2012 a popular mobile phone as it had many features and looked much like the Blackberry which everyone liked and the media gave it much attention. Looking back one can only wonder how mobile phones have advanced so far in such a short space of time.

When the Nokia Asha 201 came to the market there had not been GPU and CPU’s in mobile phone like Nokia Asha 201we have them today. The Nokia Asha 201 came with a TFT, 256K colors screen which was at the top end then and also came with only a 2G network ability. It also had 10MB of memory and a 2 Mega Pixel camera.

The video was also horrible compared to today’s standards as it only ran at 10fps in 176×144 mode. It also only ran in WAP and the battery life was not very good. For its day the Nokia Asha 201 was a mobile phone of choice but I don’t think anyone could have foreseen the rapid growth in technology like we have seen it over the last 2 years. If you are considering buy a second hand Asha 201 then it will still be a good buy maybe for a child or teenager as their first mobile phone.

You can search this website for more details on the Nokia range of telephones. Note that the Nokia Asha 201 is still available on the secondhand market and considering its price today you might consider this to be a phone which you can use if you do not need to take many photo’s or need to do complex tasks which many of today’s builders and contractors need.

Still an excellent design and maybe into the future Nokia will bring the design back with better specs as it would make for an excellent mid-range telephone for the market.
