TT readers! before purchasing any phone enquire about some important feature such as USB connectivity! I purchased Nokia 206 and when came home found there was no USB slot. This is the first time I have seen this. Even though Nokia 206 is mostly customised for online apps, it lacks USB connectivity.

But good things- majority of Nokia phones have USB slot! even C1-01 (Rs 2200)

Nokia Asha 210 has USB charging. Hence you can connect it to your PC also using USB cable.

Lacks of USB is a part of cost reduction. Meanwhile if you want to connect you phone then you can use Bluetooth.

This is removed from lower models because of very few peoples use it. If you really care about USB connectivity then Nokia has Nokia 301 model which cost a few more bucks and provide.

Not only, Nokia 301, Nokia C1-01, C1-02, 2690 (Well its a quad band phone so good for travellers of USA and Canada and was priced 2700+50(they waved off 50) in year 2010 )
. So majority of Nokia phones have USB slot.

Bluetooth 2.1 is slow! 🙁

How long can you wait for multiple MP3 songs to be copied via bluetooth?.

If it (Nokia) wants to reduce the cost, then let it (Nokia) continue making the Nokia 1280 model (I didn’t mean that this model only should be made and sold) and sell it.

I think the mobile can be made without the display (like a walkie – talkie) and the customer should buy the battery (not supplied with the mobile). Then the cost can be reduced further !!!. LOL LOL LOL.

I strongly condemn the mobile company, Nokia for not providing USB slot. In this internet age, you should have spent some time in many other sites and you should have seen the specification before buying this phone. I can’t support your feedback in this paragraph. Read the first line of this para again. You very well know that even the persons themselves in the Nokia priority (Nokia’s own store I mean) and also the persons themselves at all other third party stores (mobile xpress, the mobile store, poorvika mobiles, the chennai mobiles, univercell etc are illiterates in explaining each and… Read more »

Yes, it was my fault not to make sure the availability of usb slot before purchasing it. Unfortunately, it was Nokia Priority and we are only allowed to see the plastic models of the phones. I don’t know about other stores. The demo phone of Nokia 206 looked good. The store salesman started telling features of phone youtube streaming, Nokia slam and bla bla. Okay, we finalised the phone and he opened the seal and damn! it didn’t have a USB slot. But nevermind, the phone is good and maybe bluetooth would fulfill the work of a USB slot. (Even… Read more »

Note :

All windows phones in Nokia do not have inbuilt Radio. They also do not support JAVA softwares !!!. Be alerted. Try Nokia pureview 808.

Why you always whine for phones that can not run Java software’s. For your information java software’s are built for feature phones and on the current generation smartphones. BB, iPhone, Android and Windows Phones has thousand time better software’s.

And for your information Nokia’s previous generation Windows Phone’s had have FM Radio. And current generation Windows Phones has FM Radio hardware present but a software update is due from Microsoft side to enable it.

Sir, I would like to bring to your kind notice that Java is never built in inside mobiles, a basic JRE(Java Runtime Environment) is needed inside a feature phone to run Java apps.
And beg your pardon, all android apk’s are either programmed in Java or in C++.
Also IPhone developers use Java technology to make apps, even Blackberry uses java, Only windows phone use Visual C# or C++, mobile versions to develop software.

haha…….radio? Umm, I don’t require that!

JAVA software- Only android support that. iOS and Windows don’t but Windows store/marketplace is sufficient for on demand apps like skype, viber, etc. Overall, the UI of Windows phone really amaze me! Its so fast and fluid.
