Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - FIRST TAKE -

The new Asha 501, like its pre­de­ces­sors, seeks to blur the dis­tinc­tion be­tween fea­ture phones and smart­phones by of­fer­ing sev­eral of the lat­ter's con­ve­niences at an af­ford­able price. The de­vice has a three inch scratch-re­sis­tant dis­play with a re­mov­able cas­ing at the back. It has a 3.2 MP cam­era and a 4GB mem­ory card, but will sup­port ex­pand­able mem­ory of up to 32GB. It is cur­rently a 2G de­vice with Wi-Fi ca­pa­bil­ity, but a 3G ver­sion will fol­low soon. The 501 wakes up from sleep with a dou­ble tap, and has a sin­gle ‘back’ hard­ware but­ton. It runs a new op­er­at­ing sys­tem with in­no­va­tive fea­tures like Swipe and Fast­lane. The phone will be avail­able in June.
