As part of our ongoing efforts to work where our members work, we’re excited to introduce a native LinkedIn app for Nokia Asha smartphones, which offer a platform for rich mobile experiences on an affordable and accessible device. The app, launching later today, delivers your LinkedIn network and professional insights on any Nokia Asha full touch* phone, as well as the new Nokia Asha 501, which has begun selling in several markets around the world. The app makes it easy to conduct business wherever your workday takes you, with features designed to give you a professional edge:

  • Stay in-the-know about your network and industry – Tap into a rich, personalized stream of industry news and updates from your professional community. Access Influencer posts from top business minds and real-time insights from your update stream to help you be better prepared for your next meeting.
  • Never go into a meeting blind – Get to know who you are meeting with by checking out their LinkedIn profile to see who you know in common, where they went to school and what companies they worked with. You can learn a lot about someone you’re about to meet so you can get the conversation started with something other than the weather.
  • Continue the conversation – We’ve made it easy to quickly follow up with someone you’ve just met with to connect on LinkedIn and to continue your business conversation. Make sure to check out the People You May Know feature to ensure you’re building a network of trusted connections and people you’ve worked with who can help as you continue advancing in your career.

The app is available in six languages: Bahasa Indonesia, Bahasa Malaysia, Brazilian Portuguese, English, Russian and Spanish. Try the new LinkedIn for Nokia Asha and tell us what you think.
