Nokia talks about Xpress Browser and Nokia Nearby apps for Asha phones.

Nokia’s Xpress Browser for Asha Phones which gives fast and affordable access to the web and features like “YouTube streaming” to the Asha phones. It does this by compressing websites and reducing the data by up to 90 per cent which ultimately means that you’ll be saving up to 90 per cent in terms of cost, too.

It is highly localised too, so when you load up the browser, you’ll be introduced to a localised homescreen that provides relevant content from wherever you are in the world.

The Nokia Xpress Browser also comes with built-in web app support so that you can experience great apps right in the browser. These apps may be found directly on your start page or you can choose from thousands in Nokia Store. Either way, because they run through the same cloud-based acceleration engine, you save data every time you use a Nokia Xpress web app.

Nokia has also detailed about its own web app called Nokia Nearby for these Asha Phones. It helps in find interesting places that are around you, using the same POI (points of interest) database that you can expect to find on the Nokia Asha smartphone may not have a GPS receiver, Nokia Nearby is still able to find your location using either Wi-Fi positioning or cell-site information from the operators.

Using Nokia Nearby gives you access to a wealth of new and exciting experiences. Finding new places is easy, as the rating system and reviews section in any venue let you know what to expect from a venue. The integration of Nokia Nearby into your phone makes calling a restaurant for a reservation as day as pressing the call button from within the app.

Exploring the local sights is always better with friends and that’s where sharing the venue to Facebook comes in handy. Let people know where you’re going to be and when they click on your shared location on your Facebook wall, they’ll instantly be taken to where they can see the venue in more detail – along with navigation options.
