Hankering for a Nokia Asha 501

Well, I have always been searching for a dual sim phone. One that caught my eye is the Samsung Galaxy Grand around RM1100 but it came out just a few days after I purchase my Samsung Tab so I been keeping mum.

Apart from the tab, I had the obselete blackberry of my office since around 3 years ago (wow, shelf life of handphones now are really brief) and the first gen of Asha bought around 21 Jun 2012.

Just a bit over a year, I saw the newest Asha offering yesterday. Cute and compact, it just retail at RM299. Wow! Yeah I gotta admit it won't be really great as the note but it will suffice cz I just need its two sims (tired of lugging both the blackberry n nokia asha 1 around), a bit of FB just to vent frustration and record whatever on my mind and browse the internet.. Oo and definitely getting emails notifications). It had a disadvantages tho.. No whatsapp which me and my work circle use quite often nowadays. Anyway it got Bejeweled instead which I quite like rather than Candy Crush that often got me frustrated and now retired at level 147 hehehe..

Anyway, will think for a few days more and will update if I decided at last to get one :)
