Nokia today launched the Android powered smartphone recently announced at Mobile World Congress three weeks ago. The Nokia X hits Kenya as the second market to do so, just hot on the heels of India which launched earlier in the week. Nokia X comes as a gap in the middle of the low end Asha and the Windows Phone OS powered Lumia.
The specs of the Nokia X phones are as follows:
- Display: 4 inch (480 x 800 pixels) IPS LCD touchscreen
- Processor: 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4
- Memory: 4 GB internal storage
- 512 MB for the Nokia X
- Camera: 3 MP
- Battery: 1500mAh
- Others: 3G connectivity, dual-SIM support
Nokia X will be available from mid next week from partners like Safaricom and Mobicom. Safaricom will bundle it with a 1.5 GB bundle. It will be priced at Kshs 12500 and the usual colours of Nokia will be available by way of exchangeable covers. Also bundled in among add-ons that users will get with the Nokia X is 1 month free Skype and 10 GB OneDrive Cloud storage limitless access. Nokia XL comes in later in “a few months”.
Nokia has pre-loaded local Kenyan apps, among them the Daily Nation App, Nairobi News App, Ma3Route App and Mledger Mpesa App.
