Cheap Nokia phones have never exactly been design icons (well, unless you go back to the earlier days, which now have some "classic" cachet) but the new Asha 205 and, particularly, the Nokia 206, actually looking quite handsome.

The 206 cleverly borrows the same color options as Nokia's Lumia line-up, building brand identity, while the Asha 205 has a dedicated Facebook button so as to grab some attention from the cheap BlackBerry deals loved by teenagers.

I'm less impressed by Nokia Slam, the new file sharing system, but at $62 apiece (pre-tax, pre-subsidy) these are very cheap phones.
