Nokia X2-01 takes QWERTY budget

Nokia has outed a new, very basic QWERTY phone for message-addicted users. The Nokia X2-01 runs S40 and has a 2.4-inch QVGA display, quadband GSM/EDGE and a VGA resolution camera; there’s also Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a 3.5mm headphone socket.

If that all sounds pretty basic, you’re right. Still, it has a basic price tag, as well: €80 ($110) unsubsidized when it arrives later this quarter. Full details on the spec sheet here [pdf link].

Meanwhile, Nokia’s change in naming methodology was supposed to make figuring out where new devices in their line-up fitted in more straightforward; unfortunately, it’s already at the point where the company’s official blog is having to re-explain why there are two X2-branded devices. Considering the X2-01 is seemingly labelled as the X2 on the handset itself, we’re not surprised that consumers are confused.
