Asha - ebay, Facebook and Skype

Can Asha phones get apps for ebay, Facebook and Skype?
I was considering buying one for my dad, as I don't think he needs the full £100+ smartphone experience necessarily.

Yes, most Ashas can do thos things. But: I would seriously suggest spending a bit more for a Lumia 520 or a good budget Android like a Huawei Ascend 500 or similar.
The Ashas' internet capabilities are more of the "emergency/backup" variety... slow, limited features... And the Nokia browser is (as all their browsers ever) horrible.

Even an entry level Blackberry would be better - though maybe too complicated for a newb.

(I have a 'backup' Asha. They are well built and have good battery stamina etc... But I really can't recommend them for web action. You'd pull your hair out 'showing him the ropes" if you ever used a modern smartphone)
