News on the development of this new X-series model was first made public through a supposed leak from the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technologys official website. Leaked photos showed a camera smartphone with a full QWERTY and alphanumeric keypad that looked like the Nokia C3 model.
This is rumored to be a low priced smartphone. It seems that it has lately been the goal of Nokia to produce low budget phones with very cool features to entice a larger market. The X2-01 is precisely built from this mold and it will offer plenty of mobile entertainments for Nokia fans.
Music lovers will appreciate the dedicated key that opens the X2-01 music and songs manager. It also has an FM radio
It has a very good screen resolution.
In place of the Wi-Fi support, the X2-01 is installed with EDGE for Internet connectivity.
The X2-01 is built with the S40 platform as the OS. The S40 is an inferior operating system compared to Symbian^3, which was used for the recent Nokia releases.
Its 3 megapixel camera may be an upgrade from C3s 2 megapixel camera, but it is a disappointing downgrade from the Nokia X2s 5 megapixel camera. Although there is not much difference between 3 megapixels and 5 megapixels, it still could have been better.
It is also too bulky, especially in light of the other new releases that seems to embrace thinness as an art.
The biggest setback is its lack of Wi-Fi support, which the C3 and X2 both had. Considering the demand for Internet browsing and social networking integration for mobile phones, this can possibly discourage buyers the most.
This low budget smartphone is a good choice for those who have tight budgets. Indeed, the X2-01 falls under the mid-low Nokia models and will be first released in China, India and Russia. The Nokia X2-01 is ideal for people who are satisfied with simple smartphone features. On the other hand, Nokia is yet to make further official announcements regarding the complete specs of the X2-01.
