The Asha family has expanded and we want to get your first reactions. There are 2.3 billion people currently without a mobile phone in the world and 1.2 billion with a phone but no data plan. All three of the new devices run on S40 and are part of the plan to connect the next billion people to the internet with Nokia.

The Nokia Asha 202 and Nokia Asha 203 are essentially the same but the 203 is dual-SIM enabled. The 203 is available in Silver White, Dark Red and Dark Grey whereas the 202 is also available in Black and Golden White  (in select markets).
