The Asha 205 was the other featurephone which we did not bother to cover the other day simply because the Asha 206 (that came in single and dual SIM models) proved to be the superior device between the two, but if there was one thing that news feeds buzzed about the Asha 205, it would be this – the Asha 205 is Nokia’s first handset to come with a dedicated Facebook button. Well, it seems that the China-bound Asha 205 will be different, even gimped if you were to say so, as it will no longer carry the Facebook button, but rather, be replaced by a QQ button – which is China’s equivalent of Facebook – at least in terms of popularity, as it is an instant messaging service.
After all, we do know that China and Facebook are not the best of friends, never mind about Mark Zuckerberg’s intention of learning Chinese as well as marrying a hottie who in all probability, can trace her roots back to China. We do wonder just how well the Asha 205 will sell in that part of the world…
