One swipe to everything you love

The New Asha 501 Dual SIM pins your latest calls, music and apps to one screen so you can quickly swipe back into whatever you were doing.

Everything you need on one screen

Instantly get to your favourite apps, social networks, contacts and what's happening next in your life. Fastlane collects all this and more onto a single screen for easy access.

All your stuff, just a swipe away

Free yourself from fiddling with controls and buttons. The swipe motion makes switching between apps and tasks fast and easy, so you can get on with the good stuff.

Standout design

The New Asha 501 Dual SIM is a whole new kind of smartphone. Created with people from all over the world, it's powerful, fast and simple to use.

Built to perform

The scratch-resistant glass screen and changeable covers stand up to life. And the battery will keep you going with up to 48 days of stand-by time. Try it - you'll be amazed.

Six bold colours

Pick a colour that you love or one that fits your personal style. And the covers are easy to swap, so you can get a fresh look any time you like.

Rich on browsing, light on data

Make your data plan go further with the Nokia Xpress Browser. It's light on the data and gives you the full browsing experience. And choose Wi-Fi for even more freedom.

Browse better with tabs

Surf smoother with browser tabs. Save sites as tiles for quick access, or stream a YouTube or VuClip video in one tab while browsing in another.

Go beyond the web you know

Discover new websites, blogs, stories and more. The Nokia Xpress Now app brings trending content from around the internet onto a single magazine-style page.

Find an app for every need

There's lots of top apps available on the New Asha 501 Dual SIM - including Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare, Bejeweled 3, Plants vs. Zombies and more. And lock-screen notifications keep you up to date with your email, chat and social networks.

Change it up with Easy Swap Dual SIM

Use multiple SIM cards to personalise your phone and to always get the best rate. The New Asha 501 Dual SIM remembers the settings for up to five SIMs, so swapping is a breeze - without even taking your battery out.
