Nokia's dual-SIM X2-02 strikes up a tune

Nokia's dual-SIM X2-02 strikes up a tuneNokia may be plastering just about every available surface known to man right now with Lumia 800 advertising, but it hasn't forgotten its entry-level feature phone range either, and today found time to unveil its latest effort, the dual-SIM Nokia X2-02.

The X2-02 is powered by Series 40 and features Nokia's Easy Swap SIM technology, which allows you to house two SIMs within the phone itself, and have up to five registered with the device.

It doesn't take a genius to work out that the X2-02 isn't likely to be competing for sales against anything Windows Phone-powered Nokia has lined up – the €60 pre-tax and subsidies price tag will take care of that.

But for budget-conscious families in developing nations, for instance, its dual-SIM capability and 443-hour battery life is likely to be far more useful than a dual-core processor or 720p video recording.

It's far from low-tech, however. It's billed as a music phone – which explains its place in Nokia's X-Series, and comes with an internal FM antenna, MP3 player, dedicated music keys, recording capability, an in-built loudspeaker for music playback, and a formidable 32GB of memory, which can even be used to record songs directly from the radio.

There's also a 2-megapixel camera on board, along with Bluetooth, GPRS and integrated Facebook and Twitter clients. The screen, however, is just 2.2in across with a resolution of a decidedly gentle 240 x 320.

Still, all told not bad for the price, we'd have to say, though there's no word just yet on when this baby will be going on sale.

Omg, the wallpapers shown are fabulous Phil. I have the N8 which has the whole TWELVE mp camera. And i bought a 2gb memory card.

So this has more built-in storage than almost all smartphones today but only costs about £100. Bwahahaha!
