Nokia X, Nokia’s Android smartphone, launched in India at Rs 8,599

Nokia has released its first Android system based smartphone, the Nokia X. The phone, priced at Rs 8,599, will be available through online and offline retailers across India starting Monday.

The Nokia X has a single capacitive button for navigation, unlike the three capacitive buttons on a Windows Phone smartphone. The dual-sim phone is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 512MB RAM. It sports a 4-inch WVGA LCD display (480 X 800p, 233ppi). It comes with 4GB internal storage expandable up to 32GB via microSD card.

The downside here is that Nokia X users can’t have access to the Google Play Store for apps. The Nokia X supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS, EDGE, GPRS and 3G connectivity options. It is backed by a 1500mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 13 hours of talk time and up to 672 hours of standby time on 2G network.
