Today is a great day for Nokia fan boys, specially the younger generation, who prefer slightly great looking mobiles at affordable prices. Nokia earlier today, made an announcement and a press release on their blog about three great looking low mid range touch screen phones. All of three 311, 306 and 305 belong to successful Asha family and will be available later towards the end of this year, scroll down for release dates.

Nokia apparently has come to its senses now and finally releasing phones, which actually look and function better than a lot of their previous mid and high range phones. All three asha series phones are powered by Symbian series 40 OS and one of these phones has magnificent 1 GHZ processor.

All three phones are pretty much identical in the design, specially the 305 and 306, however, 305 has dual sim swap functionality while the other one has other slight advantage. They all come in great colors. Nokia’s main aim is to target low end market ind developing countries and spread their arm reach there, as Nokia preaches that, since the phones are relatively low cost, they will be used to connect billions throughout the world. All phones have great hardware and software, which permits them fast browsing, game playing, sms, email and other features.

However, one thing, which probably needs further attention is Camera in 305 and 306, which i think should have had been at least 4 MP, not to forget Nokia 808 pureview, which is boosting 48 MP camera, this means Nokia does have capability to come up with slightly better cameras for these gadgets.

Following is detailed specs chart of all three phones, with their respective images.
