Nokia X2-02 was officially introduced in India last month, along with Nokia Asha 200, but the former has yet to hit shelves. Today, the Finnish handset maker announced the price tags for the X2-02, as well as for another Asha series feature-phone, the Asha 300.
Although the handsets are not available on the market, Nokia fans who are waiting for any of the two phones should keep in mind that the Nokia X2-02 will be available for purchase for only Rs 3,599 (70 USD or 55 EUR), while the Nokia Asha is priced at Rs 7,409 (145 USD or 110 EUR).
Nokia India Director for South Markets, Mr. T S Sridhar told folks at India Times
, that phones such as Nokia Asha 200, Asha 300 and Nokia X2-02 are aimed at attracting the younger generation.
Even though both handsets are based on Nokia’s S40 user interface, they have different segment targets. While the Nokia X2-02 is a basic dual-SIM mobile phone, the Asha 300 is aimed at customers who prefer music phones.
It is also worth mentioning that Nokia Asha 300 comes with a 2.4-inch resistive touchscreen display with 240 x 320 pixels resolution and 262k colors support, whereas the Nokia X2-02 sports a slightly smaller 2.2-inch standard display with the same resolution.
Hardware-wise, if we were to compare the two handsets, the Asha 300 would be the clear winner, as the phone is equipped with a 1GHz single core processor and packs 140 MB of internal memory, 256 MB of RAOM, 128 MB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
Nokia X2-02 embeds only 10MB onboard memory, 64MB of ROM, 32MB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
In addition, Nokia Asha 300 sports a 5-megapixel rear camera and HSDPA support, while the X2-02 packs a mediocre 2-megapixel photo snapper, as well as Stereo FM radio with built-in antenna and FM transmitter.
