Facebook
button

Nokia today unveiled two new devices in its Mobile Phones portfolio,

innovative ways to access social
features and share their favorite
content. Both devices reflect Nokia's heritage
by combining
world-class design and long-lasting battery life. 
Introducing Slam for fast, in the moment content-sharing 
The Nokia Asha 205 and Nokia 206 are the first Mobile Phones devices
to include
Nokia's exclusive Slam feature. Slam allows consumers to
share multimedia content like photos and videos with nearby friends
almost instantly. Slam works
with most Bluetooth-enabled mobile
phones without the need to pair devices, and
without the recipient
needing to also have Slam*. In just a few clicks, people
can 'Slam'
their content to another device faster than with Bluetooth alone
and
without consuming Internet data. 
"The latest Nokia devices give super-social consumers new ways to
express their
personalities through design, color and innovative new
features like Slam," explains Timo Toikkanen, Executive Vice
President, Mobile Phones, Nokia. "Both
devices are built with the
trust and quality people have come to expect from
Nokia, and offer
smarter Internet experiences that help save money today
and
tomorrow."
