'The new phones are also aimed at giving users a smarter Internet experience at affordable costs,' Nokia India Director (Mobile Phones) Sari Harju told reporters here at the launch of the handsets.

Nokia has 10 devices in the 'Asha' series priced between 4,000 to 9,000.

The two handsets will be available in India in the next month. Though the pricing has not been announced, but the handsets are expected to be priced at about USD 62 globally.

The Asha 205 is a QWERTY handset with a dedicated Facebook button offering one-touch access to the social networking site, while the Asha 206 is an alphanumeric handset with a 2.4-inch display.

The devices have a new Slam feature, using which consumers can share multimedia content with Bluetooth-enabled devices without having to pair them.

Nokia Asha 206 has a camera application, which allows users to click focussed self portraits using the back camera of the handset through voice-guidance.
