Nokia X to be priced at well under £100?

Nokia X to be priced at well under £100?After a long week of bad weather and even worse health, it's good to get back on the Mobot news trail with an old familiar friend: our old confusing friend Nokia.

There's a large part of me that still refuses to believe the Nokia X exists – or rather the idea that it can exist. But there's another part that accepts it really does exist, and now sees that apparently it'll cost as little as £62.

OK, that's a bit of cheap sensationalism – you see, £62 is how much in pounds you'll need to buy 2.2 million Vietnamese dong (stop giggling in the back there). And 2.2m – 2.5m VND is what Vietnamese mobile retailer Mainguyen says the Nokia X or Normandy will cost there when it goes on sale.

A bunch of specs are listed too, none of which come as entirely new information: 1GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, 4in 480 x 854 TFT, 512MB RAM, 4GB memory with microSD support, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, a 5MP camera and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

And for those still struggling to reconcile the idea of the Nokia X's existence in the first place, it's looking ever more likely that you might end up being right anyway, at least if you live in the UK anyway.

Every single reference to the Normandy has come in the context of developing markets such as India, Thailand, China and (now) Vietnam. For all the rumours that have been doing the rounds, I've yet to see the slightest hint that it'll be released at all in traditional 'Western' markets.

Then again, I've spent most of the week in a crazy fever, so if you've seen different, spill the beans in the Comments section below.
