According to a press release by Nokia on their official press site that day, Nokia Asha 205 and 206 phones feature Nokia‘s new Slam connectivity feature, which detects the nearest Bluetooth-enabled device and offers that device the file, without the need to pair the two devices.

As noted in the report, both Nokia smartphones are both available in single SIM or dual SIM versions and are designed to make smarter use of the Internet, with the latest version of the Nokia Xpress Browser being preinstalled on both devices, which uses cloud-based servers to reduce data volumes by 90 per cent.

“The latest Nokia devices give super-social consumers new ways to express their personalities through design, color, and innovative new features like Slam,” Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia, was quoted in the report.

“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.” Toikkanen added. Both devices also feature Nokia Nearby, a web app that helps consumers discover points of interest such as restaurants, shopping, and others.
