The second time we asked you to tell us what you would do with the device if you won it, we were able to make a difference in your lives, the second winner, Samson Kipsang was able to make a difference in his mom’s life in that she could now save her designs using the Asha 205 camera.

The third Asha was random, it only depended on you to show us some love and share our post, Christiano Kwena ran away with it.

Today we will dwell on only one feature, the browser.

What we want you to do is tell us in a few words, what makes the browser in the Nokia Asha 205 different from browsers in many other phones in the market. Hit us in the comments, you don’t even have to be the most eloquent person in commenting, also google is your friend, make use of it, tell us something about the browser, you could even tell us it’s name and list why this browser stands out.

Hit us in the comments in 1, 2……

[Oh, I forgot to add this]

    This means S40 phones can now access complex websites that were off limits with earlier browsers, and have full desktop web pages delivered up to 2 times faster and 90% cheaper than most other mobile browsers.

  • Ondiege Matthew

    The Nokia Xpress Browser was developed to save you money, battery life and time.

    5 reason the express browser beat the other mobile browsers hands down!

    1 Data Compressions
    Rather than downloading all the data a website typically delivers to PC-based Web browsers, Nokia’s cloud-servers reduce image sizes and optimize the content before it even reaches your phone. It compresses data by up to 90 per cent without compromising on the quality of the data

    2 Faster Browsing
    Due to less data coming into your phone, you’ll notice a considerable difference in browsing speeds. Web pages will load faster up to three times faster than competitors’ browsers on devices at similar price points.

    3 YouTube
    Finally YouTube on non full touch phone!Videos can be streamed (if the device supports RTSP streaming) or (temporarily) downloaded using the new download manager. On the YouTube site, you’ve also got the option to select the quality of the video you want to watch, which is important for those on low data tariffs.

    4 Web apps
    Web apps are apps that live in ‘the cloud’. Because of this, they also go through the same data compression that any webpage does. There are currently over 10,000 web apps available to download from Nokia Store

    5 Saving money – best reason of all
    With all the data compressing going on, you’re not downloading as much, meaning you’re paying less just for using Nokia Xpress Browser. You are able to keep track of how much browsing you are doing . You’re given a breakdown on exactly how much data you’re saving and also on what media items you’ve saved them on.
