Device offers similar features to the X3
Nokia has expanded its X-series handsets to include the X2, an entry-level music phone. The candybar design integrates a 2.2-inch QVGA screen and dual speakers inside the 13mm-thick housing. Music-centric features include dedicated playback keys, FM stereo support, and a microSD slot for memory expansion up to 16GB.
The handset offers a standard list of additional features such as Bluetooth 2.1, USB 2.0, Facebook, Nokia Messaging, a five-megapixel camera and video recorder. Users can obtain additional apps from the company's Ovi Store, while music can be managed from the Ovi Player PC client or Windows Media Player 11.
The X2 will arrive on the market with an unsubsidized retail price of €85 (~$110 USD) before taxes.
