Video Of The Week – A Conversation with Eric Schmidt:
Nokia have just announced two new entry level phones the C2-01 and the X2-01. The Nokia C2-01 sports a 2-inch QVGA screen along with a 3.2MP camera, Bluetooth, microSD card slot, FM radio and a 3.5mm audio jack. The C2-01 will also be the cheapest 3G capable handset from the Finnish giant.
On the other hand, the Nokia X2-01 packs a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, full QWERTY keyboard, FM radio, VGA camera, microSD card slot and a 3.5mm audio jack. Sadly, the X2-01 only supports EDGE and not 3G. Both the phones will be running on Symbian S40 platform so multi-tasking is a strict no-no. The C2-01 will have Nokia Messaging pre-installed for all your IM and email needs while the X2-01 will come with Nokia’s Communities app pre-installed.
The Nokia C2-01 is expected to be available in Q1 of 2011 and should cost 70 euros including taxes. The X2-01 will hit the retail stores by the holiday season this year and will cost 80 euros after taxes.
Looks like Nokia is soon going to release another low-end QWERTY based phone running on S40 the X2-01. Eldar over at Mobile-Review has posted some pictures and the rumored specifications of the X2-01. The Nokia X2-01 looks similar to the Nokia C3 except that it lacks Wi-Fi. The X2-01 will be sporting a 2.44-inch QVGA display.
The phone will also sport 2G (no 3G), Bluetooth, FM Radio and a microSD card slot. The back of the handset also sports a 3MP camera without flash. The handset will also feature two dedicated buttons for music and messaging. It’s evident from the specs of the handset that Nokia will be positioning the X2-01 a slot below the C3.
Nokia will be targeting the X2-01 towards emerging markets like India and Brazil.
