Swipe trickles down into Asha 501

This caught my attention.

Usually I skim past news on new Nokia Asha phones, but this phone was different. Sure, it’s woefully underpowered and incredibly cheap compared to it’s Lumia counterparts.

Double-tap on the lockscreen to wake the phone. Check. Round bordered notifications on the lock screen. Check. Swipe to unlock. Check. Vertical scrolling icon screen with the rounded square icons. Check. Swipe left on any screen to access a list of notifications. Check.

If it sounds familiar, it is:

Nokia N9

Looks like Nokia made good on its promise that the Swipe UI would live on. Excuse me while I search the classified sections for old N9s.
