Nokia and Facebook have joined hands to introduce a built-in Facebook button available on the new Nokia Asha 205.
Introduced today, Nov. 26, the Nokia Asha 205 is the first Nokia phone that includes a dedicated Facebook button, designed for people who want one-click access to Facebook features.
“People around the world use Facebook Mobile to connect and share with their friends,” said Javier Olivan, head of growth, engagement and mobile for Facebook.
“We are focused 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.”
“We have seen that many people who use Nokia Asha devices are hyper-social and we are proud to partner with Facebook to improve the user experience of those consumers further with the introduction of the Facebook button,” said Timo Toikkanen, executive vice president, Mobile Phones, Nokia.
The new Nokia Asha 205 enables people to access the Facebook for Every Phone app and use messaging. People using the messaging features in Facebook for Every Phone can now:
See which of their friends are online to start chatting with them right away
Start messages and group chats fast
Reach more of the people they know
People using the Nokia Asha 205 can also access other Facebook features, such as sharing photos and status updates with their friends, so they can stay close to the people around them with the touch of a button, suggests Nokia.
