Finnish cellphone maker Nokia has launched a low-priced handset X2 in the Indian market.
The candybar X2 sports a 2.2-inch QVGA screen and weighs 81 grams. The phone packs dual speakers, dedicated music keys, FM stereo and support for up to 16GB of storage via microSD card.
Other key features include Bluetooth 2.1, 3.5mm headphone jack and USB 2.0. The phone runs on Nokia's proprietary S40 OS. X2 also offers direct access to Facebook from the homescreen and comes with Nokia Messaging for email and Instant Messaging.
Other notable feature include instant access to apps from Ovi Store, a 5 megapixel camera and a video recorder. The phone is priced at Rs 5,000 and is likely to be available from June.
Nokia last week unveiled details of its first phone N8 with new Symbian 3 software, designed to challenge the iPhone and Blackberry at the high-end of the market.
The company cut its profit outlook and delayed the sales launch of Symbian 3 phones until the third quarter, sending its shares sharply lower. "Nokia is reacting to the fire alarm," said Swedbank analyst Jari Honko.
