They’re not the most compelling of devices, but for smartphone first timers, they should do just fine. Officially announced today, Nokia’s updating the Asha Touch line with the 308 and 309 — two new members of the Series 40 family that’ve moved past the feature phone designation and into smartphone territory. Priced at an affordable $ 99 (off-contract), this dual- and single-SIM pair are near identical with 3-inch WQVGA displays, 2GB of microSD storage (expandable to 32GB) and a 1,110mAh battery. We just happened to be onsite at the company’s HQ in Espoo for the reveal of the diminutive devices, so follow on after the break for our first impressions.
