Foursquare hits Nokia's GPS-less Asha 501, gets bearings with connection data

Nokia Lumia WP8 owners have it pretty good on Foursquare thanks to AR and other exclusive features-- but that doesn't mean lower-end device owners are being shirked. The app is now available on the Asha 501, something Nokia and Foursquare promised when it hit the S40 feature phone and its huge user base. Despite the Asha's lack of a GPS, owners of the sub-$100 device will get all of Foursquare's main features -- like check-ins, mayorships and badges -- since the app can use a network connection to figure out where you are. It'll likely arrive on other Asha devices soon as well, so if you're looking to rule your local haunt as mayor, better grab it fast.
