The latest Nokia Corporation (ADR)(NYSE:NOK) Asha 205 is expected to be released soon. It will come with a dedicated Facebook button.
The phone will be available in a lot of nations, including China. Since Facebook and China are not on best of terms, the dedicated Facebook key will be replaced by a QQ button in China. Apart from that feature, the Chinese Asha 205 should be the same as the international version.
