At Mobile World Congress today, the Nokia Asha 305 picked up the award for ‘Best Feature or Entry Level Phone’ in the GSMA Global Mobile Awards for 2013.
The winners were unveiled today in a ceremony hosted by comedian, David Walliams.
Decided by a panel of esteemed journalists and analysts, the award rewards many thousands of hours of work by talented engineers and designers. Plus all the work done by their forerunners, of course, whose experience the Nokia Asha 305 builds upon.
In fact, three Nokia devices were nominated by the judging panel in the ‘Best Feature or Entry Level Phone’ category: the Nokia 103, Nokia Asha 302 and Nokia Asha 305.
But it was the Asha 305 that won in the final count.
“We’re proud that the Nokia Asha 305 has been recognised by one of the world’s leading voices for the mobile industry,” said Jussi Nevanlinna, Nokia’s VP of marketing, Mobile Phones.
“The Nokia Asha has gone from strength to strength, recently achieving smartphone status from Gfk and – as part of the full Asha Touch line-up of smartphones – has achieved no. 1 status in its price point across 25 countries.”
