Nokia Introduces “Slam” File-Sharing Technology

Nokia has introduced a quick file-sharing technology using the regular bluetooth with its latest handsets–Asha 205 and Asha 206. The technology is appropriately named–SLAM.

The Story of Slam, started way back in 2009 when cubicle partners–Mika Kuulusa and Henrik Hakala in Nokia Finland were looking for a simple and faster way of sharing files “without all the usual send-search-wait-stop-select hassle.”

SLAM still needs the regular bluetooth to work but it doesn’t require for the two bluetooth-enabled devices to be paired first before files can be shared. Once a file is opened and to be shared, a SLAM sharing option will then be selected. The recipient device will be asked to confirm or deny the sharing.

The SLAM shall be featured in Asha 205 and Asha 206 which are scheduled to be shipped this quarter all over the world. Both phones are available in single-SIM and dual-SIM versions and are priced at $62 a piece or probably less than 5k in the Philippines. The SLAM is not available on iOS and Windows Phone devices. Specs for the two phones can be found here.

The Nokia Asha 205 has a tactile QWERTY keyboard and a new, dedicated Facebook button.

The Nokia 206 features a classic alphanumeric keypad and a 2.4” display. It has a vibrant color palette including Cyan, Magenta and Yellow variants. Nokia says the Asha 206 is ideal for those who want familiarity and ease of use with the benefits of the mobile Internet. Both the Asha 205 and 206 have these other benefits include: EasySwap technology that enables consumers to change SIM cards without having to turn off the device for the Dual-SIM version; and it has an impressive standby time: up to 47 days with single SIM and up to 28 days with dual SIM.
