Cheap Nokia X2-01 and Nokia C2-01 announced
The Nokia X2-01 seen earlier this month has just been officially announced, alongside the Nokia C2-01, a new basic candybar.
The X2-01 is a QWERTY handset, not the prettiest around, but definitely among the cheapest – it will cost around €80 ($110) when it launches later this quarter in five color versions (Red, Deep Grey, Silver, Azure, and Lilac).
The new X2 features quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity, a 2.4 inch QVGA display, a “Communities app which integrates Facebook into the device”, 3.5mm headset jack, music player, stereo FM radio with RDS, Bluetooth 2.1, Ovi Music (not in all markets), Ovi Mail, VGA photo camera, 55MB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support up to 8GB.
The second new handset, Nokia C2-01, looks a bit like the Nokia C2-00, but it’s not dual SIM. Nokia says it is its cheapest new 3G device – costing only €70 ($96).
Apart from 3G, the C2-01 features a 2 inch QVGA display, Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm headset jack, FM radio with RDS, 3.2MP camera, and MicroSD card support up to 16GB. The phone will be launched in the first quarter of 2011.
