Nashua Mobile, the independent telecommunications service provider in the Reunert Group, has added the Nokia Asha 201, Nokia Asha 300 and Nokia Asha 303 to the selection of Nokia devices it supports on its flat-rate Xtreme Data package.

The Nokia Asha range will be available in store as of 7 May 2012. For just R59.00 per month – on top of standard contract charges – professionals and consumers will be able to enjoy access to email, instant messaging, browsing and social networking on these devices. The predictable and fixed monthly cost removes the uncertainty associated with other data rate plans and eliminates the chance of ‘bill shock’. The package is subject to fair usage policies.

The Nokia Asha 303 and 201 blur the line between smartphones and feature phones with a blend of rich functionality, ease of use and affordability. The Nokia Asha 201 offers a great Qwerty keyboard, while the Nokia Asha 303 integrates Qwerty and Touch into a great user experience and the Nokia Asha 300 offers a keypad and touchscreen.

All three devices offer fast and easy access to the Internet, integrated social networking, messaging and world-class applications from the Nokia Store. Nokia Asha mobile phones make use of the new Nokia Web browser for Series 40 with up to 90% data compression. This means smaller downloads, pages that load fast, look great, and are easy to read.

Says Nashua Mobile Managing Director, Chris Radley: “We are excited to make the Xtreme Data package available on a new range of Nokia handsets, giving users even more choice of mobile phones that they can use with a flat-rate data package. In the next few months, we hope to add even more smartphones to the selection of devices supported on the Xtreme Data package.”

Xtreme Data is currently also available on Nokia X2-01 and Nokia C3 mobile phones based on the Series 60 platform, and the Nokia N8, Nokia E5 and Nokia E7 from Nokia’s smartphone range.

Nashua Mobile’s Xtreme Data service works by routing data from the handset to Nashua Mobile’s shared GSM data access point names (APNs) from Vodacom and MTN. Web access is controlled and managed intelligently by Nashua Mobile’s infrastructure partners, giving the customer a seamless experience that enables access to all their communication, social networking and information.
