The latest low-cost mobile phone from the Finnish device maker targets social media users.

Coined the "most social Asha yet," Nokia's (NOK 0.61%) latest Wi-Fi-compatible Asha 210 phone includes the mobile industry's first WhatsApp button, the company announced today. In addition to the dedicated WhatsApp feature, the device is available with either single or dual SIM variants, a QWERTY keyboard, and a pre-loaded YouTube launcher.

It comes equipped with a 2MP camera and built-in voice function to help users center images, including self-portraits. Timo Toikkanen, Nokia's executive vice president for mobile phones, said, "The Nokia Asha 210 really stands out giving super-social consumers new ways to express their personalities through design, colour and innovations like the world's first WhatsApp button." The phone also includes ready access to Facebook and Twitter.

The Asha 210 will be introduced in emerging markets including Africa, the Middle East, and parts of Europe. Nokia estimates the retail price will be $72, and it should begin shipping in the second quarter of 2013.
