Nokia has announced two new low-cost dual SIM dual-standby phones, the Nokia X1-01 and C2-00, due in India by the end of June. So far, only suggested pricing has been revealed, €34 or roughly Rs. 2,200 for the X1-01, and €45 or roughly Rs. 2,900 for the C2-00. Both are Symbian phones, with the Nokia X1-01 running Series 30, and the C2-00 running Series 40. India will probably be one of the ‘selected markets’ where these phones will also offer Ovi Life Tools services.
According to the announcement on the Nokia Conversations blog, “both devices are no-nonsense, inexpensive phones that offer an exceptionally long battery life.” The Nokia X1-01, a music phone, is rated to deliver up to 13 hours of talk time, 43 days of standby time, and 36 hours of continuous music playback with its 1320 mAh battery. The Nokia C2-00 is rated to deliver 5.75 hours of talk time, and 19.2 days of standby time with its 1020 mAh battery. They both have 1.8-inch 65K colour screens, with resolutions of 128x160 pixels, and are dual band devices.[RELATED_ARTICLE]
The low-priced X1-01 apparently has the loudest and clearest speaker on any Nokia device till date, which can deliver up to 106 phon (unit of loudness) with minimal distortion. It has the range of music phone features you expect, with dedicated music keys, MP3 player, one-click playlist creator, a 3.5mm audio jack, FM radio, and up to 16GB of storage via microSD. It also has a flashlight, and can remember settings for up to five SIM cards, even letting you assign logos/signatures/ringtones for each one.
Over and above these features, the Nokia C2-00 includes a VGA camera, GPRS connectivity, browser and Nokia Messaging apps, and up to 32GB of storage via microSD. It also offers ‘Easy Swap’, a hot-swappable SIM slot on the side of the phone. Including FM recording, it also has Bluetooth v2.0 and microUSB connectivity.
