Facebook and Nokia have announced the introduction of a built-in Facebook button available on the new Nokia Asha205 handset. The Facebook button is designed for people who want the fastest, one-click access to Facebook features.
The Nokia Asha205 includes Nokia’s Slam feature, which allows consumers to share multimedia content like photos, music, 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.
“People around the world use Facebook Mobile to connect and share with their friends. We are focussed on delivering the best Facebook experience to as many people as possible and our partnership with Nokia perfectly complements our strategy of giving people around the world a rich Facebook experience for keeping in touch with their friends,” said Kevin D’Souza, Country Growth Manager, Facebook India.
“Young consumers are increasingly using Facebook for communication, socializing and entertainment. The launch of the Nokia Asha205 responds to this growing demand and gives a unique option for consumers at an affordable price point,” said Viral Oza, Director – Marketing, Nokia India.
Users of Nokia Asha205 can also easily access other Facebook features with the touch of a button. To make the Facebook experience more enjoyable, Nokia has tied up with Idea Cellular. All Idea consumers on Nokia Asha205 will be able to access Facebook.
