Nokia announces the X2, a quasi-Android smartphone with mid-range specs


Today Nokia announced the X2, the Finnish company’s second attempt at producing a smartphone that plays nice with Android. Not to be confused with Motorola’s flagship circa 2011, Nokia’s new device features a 4.3-inch ClearBlack WVGA display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage space and a 5-megapixel shooter with an LED flash. Available in a broad range of colors, including green, orange and black, additional hues are scheduled to be launch after its release.

As indicated earlier, the X2 features Android support, but doesn’t have direct access to Google Play. Instead, this nomad-like smartphone gets its Android fix from places like 1Mobile Market, Aptoide, SlideME, Mobango and Yandex. Despite releasing a hands-on preview of its new dual-SIM smartphone, Nokia didn’t provide any launch details, so this video will have to hold you over — that is if you’re interested.
