Microsoft calls on Nokia X2 for emerging markets
As expected, Microsoft on Tuesday announced its latest Android smartphone in the form of an entry-level Nokia X2. Slated for release in July, the handset features a 4.3-inch ClearBlack display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB RAM, and a 5-megapixel/1-megapixel camera duo.
The Nokia X2 will feature three home screen layouts, including one (Fastlane) that looks quite a bit like the Windows Phone experience. Users can pin select items to the home screen and quickly access apps, events, and other items. Although powered by Android, the handset comes with a number of Microsoft apps and services such as Skype, OneDrive, Outlook, Bing, and OneNote.
The Nokia X2 will be available initially as a dual-SIM device and retail for 99 euros. Color options are reported to include glossy orange, black and green; glossy yellow, white and matte dark grey will be offered later.
It’s not clear exactly where the X2 will be sold nor whether a single-SIM model is in the works.
