Finland based global mobile handset making company Nokia has listed its new Asha 501 smartphone on its own online store in India at Rs. 5,199. Any interested users can pre-order it now without any trouble.
Nokia also revealed that Nokia Asha 501 will be available in five different colors which are Red, White, Black, Yellow and Cyan. However, the company didn’t mention any exact dates whatsoever by when the phone will be available for the end users.
Eventually Nokia Asha 501 was unveiled in May 2013, and it is one of the most awaited and talked-about phones of the Asha series, as it will be run on the new Asha platform. Just a few days back Nokia developed and designed the new platform in order to provide better, faster, smoother and more responsive experiences to its users.

At the time of launch of the phone Nokia had announced that the Asha 501 phones will have both the Single SIM and dual SIM variants. However, Nokia has only listed the dual SIM Asha 501 in its India based online store, and this smartphone has the popular easy swap feature too. It has full Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, but sadly users of this phone will not be able to enjoy 3G or GPS via it.

The good part is Nokia is giving away a 4GB memory card for free of cost on purchasing the phone. The new Asha 501 has 17 hours of talk time support, and it can run on stand-by mode for 26 days on a single charge, which is really commendable.
