Nokia unveils the touchscreen Asha 501 with new software platform, we go handson video

One or more additional members are expected to join Nokia’s Lumia line-up next Tuesday, but today the company has chosen New Delhi as the stage to unveil the Asha 501, a new touchscreen handset that further blurs the line between featurephone and smartphone. While the last touchscreen Asha Nokia launched was very much a tweaked version of its predecessors, the 501 has a radically different design akin to the latest QWERTY device stamped with the Asha brand. The aesthetics aren’t all that’s changed, however, as the 501 is running a re-engineered OS Nokia’s dubbed the “Asha software platform” (the fruits of last year’s Smarterphone acquisition). We were able to spend a little quality time with the handset, so head past the break for more details and our initial impressions.
