We’ve seen this as a leaked handset before, and now, it’s finally official. Nokia has just announced the X2-01.
Most of its rumored specs – the 2.4-inch QVGA display, Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, FM radio, microSD card slot, S40 platform – turned out to be true, but one thing missing that might disappoint is the 3-megapixel camera. Instead, it’s equipped with a VGA camera. Its feature set is definitely not its strongest suit. Its price, however, is a different story. In fact, this baby aims to be one of the company’s cheapest QWERTY handsets around. The X2-01 is scheduled to roll out this quarter with retail price of just 80 Euros, or $110 in US currency, before tax and subsidies. It’ll be available in five colored variations: Deep Grey, Silver, Azure, Red, and Lilac.
Another new handset is the Nokia C2-01. This one features a 2-inch QVGA display, 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm jack, microSD card for additional storage (up to 16GB), and 3G connectivity. Debuting in Q1 of next year, the C2-01 will be Nokia’s most affordable 3G handset to date. It’s priced at €70 or $96 in the greenback. It's not that great, but at that price, it's not that bad either.
