The Nokia Asha 200 was released in October 2011. It left the impression of the older Blackberry mobile phones which had become very popular with a small keyboard (QWERTY). The user manual has been added below for the mobile phone and there are a number of articles on how to use the phone on this website.
The Nokia Asha 200 came with a Dual SIM option. You can find the settings for this in the user manual below or search the website for more directions on how this works. The phone is nice and small and still today is very popular in the second hand market. The screen is a basic TFT screen with 256K colors. It also has a 320 x 240 pixels resolution.
The phone comes with a phone-book and normally has 10MB of internal memory. There is also a dedicated microSD slot, with up to 32 GB of storage. That was very big at that time. The camera had a 2 megapixel camera. The video ability of the phone was also good at that time compared to what is on the market today. It can record 176×144@10fps video. It was at a time where moving the camera would give you fuzzy video as the frame rates had been very low. Today most cameras run at about 30fps.
There is also a loudspeaker and comes with Vibration, Polyphonic(64) as well as MP3 ringtones. With no GPS and Bluetooth being the v2.1, EDR. It also has a Stereo FM radio, RDS with recording. Its a great pity that so many phones have left off the FM radio option. The microUSB v2.0 is ore than enough for the phone.
The original phone with original batteries had a good power on rating at about 500 hours of standby time. This coupled with 7 hours of talk time and 52 hours of music play.
